Last night-- Pace's attorney issued a statement saying although Pace and Clower worked at the P-S-A together-- Pace was NOT part of Clower's alleged scheme.

Neva and Jasmine Smith are history buffs with a fondness for a particular hill in Patrick County. This is the land on which Major General James Ewell Brown Stuart, otherwise known as Jeb, was born during the winter of 1833. Fifteen years later he would leave Laurel Hill and make a name for himself as the "eyes and ears of the Confederacy."

But Stuart longed for home. During the winter of 1863 the red-head with the piercing blue eyes told his brother about his desire to return to Laurel Hill when the war ended. But he never made it, dying half a year later in the Battle of Yellow Tavern.
