"Who is buried in Grant's Tomb?" was a common question heard on the television show "You Bet Your Life" in 1959 when the Aycock Birthplace State Historic Site first opened its doors.
That question and many more will be asked on March 3 at 7 p.m., when Aycock Birthplace will hold its second annual Civil War Trivia Contest. Categories include "Way Down South in the Land of Cotton," "What's Your Name?" "Chickens in the Breadpan Pickin' Out Dough" and "So You Want To Be in Pictures?"
"This is loads of fun -- but it can also get kind of cut-throat if people are into this game," said assistant site manager Johnny Joyner. The trivia contest will have 20 contestants answering questions about the Civil War.
People are asked to call and reserve their spot for the competition, which is free and open to the public. For more information, call 242-5581 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Governor Charles B. Aycock Birthplace State Historic Site is located on Governor Aycock Road, about 11 miles north of Goldsboro.
