The battle of “Dear Jane”

On September 5, 2014, Kwa Zulu Natalalian General NikkiM lead needle and threads troops in the Battle of “Dear Jane” against the forces of the Confederate General Jane A. Stickle. According to the Warren Western Reserve Chronicle, “this was one of the hardest fought battles in the South, the total force on the Union side was about 1 with needle and thread troops.” The “terrible struggle…lasted from 11 o’clock in the morning until sundown.” This early Dear Jane battle, to some considered a victory for the North and to others one for the South, was NikkiM’s first, showcasing her talent as a needle and thread leader and helped to propel her into the final stages of the war against 5602 pieces of Confederate fabric .
At the time of printing this article, the Confederate fabric pieces were in the process of a slow but steady surrender.
More to follow in due course.
