The Star-Spangled Unknown

There are 7 comments on the The Washington Post story from Jun 7, 2012, titled The Star-Spangled Unknown. In it, The Washington Post reports that:

No such dispensation could be granted for the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, of course, as it is impossible to miss the armies of reenactors, the newspaper special sections , the magazine covers, the Civil War travel packages - all this, even though sesquicentennial has none of the zing of bicentennial.

In 1814 we took a little trip,
Along with Colonel Jackson
down the mighty Mississip...
We took a little bacon and we
took a little beans and we fought the
bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

In retrospect it's too bad the South didn't prevail. We wouldn't find our Country in the mess which she's in today.

The English aren't very nice people. They gave smallpox to the Indians because they are so mean.
