These are some pictures of the Obama operation in Roxboro, NC.

We first started meeting at Miracles Barbershop on August 9th. The owner, Derrick Pettiford, generously offered us the use of his parking lot as a staging area  for canvassing. This was about the time our field organizer from Chicago (a senior at The University of Iowa) showed up, and we began to intensify voter registration efforts.

Miracles is located on the hill where lynchings were carried out from the end of the Civil War up until the early sixties. This tree is probably fairly close to the spot where the atrocities were carried out.

The current phase of the campaign requires wi/fi, phones and printers, so we were offered additional space at “Designs by Gloria”, a small flower and gift shop near the old railhead of the town.

We got word just yesterday that Person county and northern Durham county had the highest first day early voting turnouts in the state.

The McCain campaign’s neck might be broken in little places like this.
