The Village Blacksmith by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The Village Blacksmith

Under a spreading chestnut-tree

The village smithy stands;

The smith, a mighty man is he,

With large and sinewy hands;

And looks the whole world in the face,…

Coal Supply

I have looked over some of the more recent posts and did not find anything on local coal suppliers, if this post is redundant I apologize. That said, does anyone near Augusta or the CSRA portion of Georgia have a reliable supply for coal? Most of the local suppliers I have used in the past have stopped carrying coal, so any help would be appreciated. I don't mind going north to pick up coal, but I only use a few hundred pounds per year so the time involved is tough to…
