A Soldier’s Can-Do Attitude Exemplifies the Spirit of Small-Town America
America is a big country, and it is easy to overlook the tiny places and the people that make this land special. If you want to experience the off-the-beaten-path areas of this country, travel 40 minutes east of Charlotte, North Carolina and you may find Burnsville on North Carolina Highway 742 south, a little-known township in Anson County.
There’s no need for pretense in a township of under 2,000 people and a footprint of just under 49 square miles. You will find a fire station, one gas station, plenty of trees, but no restaurants. The Anson High School is located in nearby Wadesboro.
