I Did Not Know This – Not Afraid or Ashamed To Say So – Did You Know?

How  much of Jamaica’s history do I really know?………………With that said, I am going to get a few interested friends and we are going to visit Accompong.  I have never been and it is about time I see first hand and acquaint myself with the history of the Maroons.  I’m actually excited about this.
