closer to me in both geography and time is the Jasper murders when a new way to muder was coined into criminolgy here in Texas .. "to Jasper" someone is not a party you want an invite to
what "color" of enemies have our troops been sent to kill since Reagan took office .. nearly all "brown" since Granada invasion to present
You are correct on Michigan as well as other states (even dating back to the Civil War era) when many industrial working class felt threatened by the slaves being freed while the industrial leaders foresaw cheaper labor. The issue of slavery was more a "money" issue than a "humanity" issue and that still exists even until current times. It is a battle of the "haves" versus the "have nots".

As,I stated in an earlier post there was no clear dividing lines on the conflict. Many in the north supported the Southern Cause including the Mayor of New York City while many Southerners supported the preservation of the Union and did not care one way or the other on the slave issue.

We think of the Ku Klux Klan as being a Southern Institution and it did origninate in Pulaski, Tennessee. But it's most prominent period of growth in membership was in Indiana when the people there began to be fearful of immigrants from Europe and the South affecting their employment. During the 1920s, membership grew at a rate of almost 2000 per week.
Hatred and Bigotry is not just prevalent in the South and generally stems from fear out of certain changes that may affect the continuation of their comfort zones. That is evidenced right here on this little thread. Thanks in advance for the spam and the nuts. LOL
You are absolutely correct, A.W.! Boston, and most of Massachusetts, are very bigoted, too. Remember "forced busing," back in the 70's? The people up there raised all kinds of a ruckus, over that!

Beware of that GMO corn, no one really knows what kind of mutations it can do, lolol Oh, forget about being warned if it is or not, MONSANTO enjoys an exemption in USA, unlike 50 other nations, on NOT labelling American products containg ANY GMO's. Critics call the law, the MONSANTO Protection Act .. look it up, a horrific Bill Obama signed into LAW!
I read about this act several months ago. In other countries there are stiff fines and severe penalties enforced upon companies selling products with GMO's and preservatives. It amazes me that this country that is supposed to be so far advanced continues to allow dangerous products in our food supplies and drinks especially when other countries feel the need to ban them. Just recently red dye 40 and yellow dyes were found to cause hyperactivity in children. The prolonged use of eating rice especially brown can cause cancer due to the arsenic exposure. Yep, Monsanto gets a free pass. Not to mention all of the "fake" sugars out there. I'll continue to use cane sugar, honey and molasses. I'll have my salt,eggs and kefir at least I know they're organic and can be eaten safely.Lol

I believed they ruled that a methane explosion over at the old bird cemetery was the cause of all the dead birds falling from the sky.
Uh, that is...ignorant.

Methane? From a bird cemetery?! Really?!?

I will look it up, because I have many questions about genetically altered foods, as to whether they are really as safe as the government tries to tell us it is! Thanks!

Lol. My "thrill" left out Tuesday morning. But hey, I get rejuvenated thinking about 7-8 weeks from now;)
Nice day, all is well here in eastern Kentucky. Just bought some vine ripe tomatoes from the store several days ago. Went to slice them for the ten year old and I discovered white,fuzzy mold growing on the leafy vine part. The taste was off as well. I tossed them not wanting to make us sick.
Well, O Hallow's Eve is around the corner, can't believe the time has flown. Hope every one is doing well. Noticed a lot of the Fine posters have been on hiatus for awhile.
Good day to All. Sure full of Blessings around here.

I am reading a hard back thick "Civil War Chronicles" which is a day-by-day chronicle of the times leading up to, during, and following the Civil War. It is not only by key military leaders and politicians, but of civilian observations, newspapers, and letters home from the average soldier.

The foreward by the author said he originally set out to chronicle the times surrounding the American Revolution, but there was very little tidbit type documentation of that era since the average person only appeared when they were born, married, died, or appeared in court but there were numerous data available for the Civil War due to the military personnel leaving home and writing letters home to friends, lovers, and wives.

I had previously read that much was known of the 54th Massachuttes versus the 55th, simply because Robert Gould Shaw wrote letters home to his parents and his lady that became his wife only 2 months prior to his death. Also that there were many acts of Valor at Gettysburg besides the story of the 20th Maine and their bayonet charge while occupying Little Round Top, but it was just better reported by the 20th Maine's leader Joshua Chamberlain who had been a professor of rhetoric at Bowdoin College and later became Governor of Maine and was just better at writing than the career military person from West Point.

Similarly, Pickett was dead last in his class of 59 and History is just better recorded by those victorious. So not only do the victors retain the spoils, they get to write the story while the losers just prefer to remain silent.

and we think that today's Congress can't agree on anything... Abolitionist Senator Charles Sumner barely survived being beaten with a cane on the Senate Floor in 1856.

No, that was the GreyHound bus stop in Little Witchie, Georgia where Dammit Ray Fergersun sent off for one of them there heathkits and set up a speaker down the two holer and waited for the bus to pull in and some lady in a flowery dress and a Carman Maranda hat went strolling down the path past those white washed tires and chickens scattering and flew open the door and just settled in. When Dammit Ray through the switch and yelled "Move over lady, I am trying to paint down here"!!

Well, we were part time laughing and part time crying when Uncle Seth came after us with a stick and we quit part time laughing and went into full time crying. LOL... That was from that old comedian, I can't remember his name? Does Jerry Lowler sound right?
