    Newbie on the board but

    Funny you should mention 1872 Ellen. I still have
    the shovel used for that groundbreaking (smile).
    Serious, I bought two shares of Carolina Bank in 1967 and
    added as I could. It merged with BB&T and I took
    advantage of dividend reinvestment which was not very much.
    But over a period of time it has done very well. Now
    I am retired and am very proud of the job BB&T has
    done for me. They raise dividends each year. I would
    recommend this stock to anyone who has patience.

    • I imagine a horrible time for the south as
      reconstruction crawled along during 1872. If I could spend a day
      in history, I'd very much like to know what it was
      like during the Civil War and the bank's history must
      be very rich indeed. I too would recommend this
      stock to anyone. If they are not patient, they should
      not hold stocks, agree?
