You see, he said he had noticed us hard at work placing the flags and that he wanted to offer us some foot-long subway sandwiches. Needlessly to say we accepted his offer rather quickly! Our new found friend turned out to be Mr. Cody Knotts, a movie producer from Uniontown, Pennsylvania. Mr. Knotts’ film America's Cleopatra: Rose Greenhow is scheduled for 2016. I’m looking forward to seeing the film. You want to learn more see me or Layton.
