Due to excessive drinking and carousing with "loose" women, Joe Hooker was relieved of his command and replaced by George Meade who was successful against R.E. Lee at Gettysburg primarily due to the efforts of General John Buford of Versailles Kentucky holding the high ground on the first day of that 3 day battle.

So yes, I would say that loose women did play a key role (roll lol) as did our own Kentucky Native.(His role was played by Sam Elliott in the movie).
They always blame it on the women.
Thanks Wolf for the great stories.

In this case, "They" would be Abraham Lincoln who took personal responsibility for having Joe Hooker relieved.

Glad you enjoyed the tidbits. I did do something besides sit on here all day, I mowed 2 acres of grass and used Topix time for breaks. LOL It was a great day to be alive and be outside. I think History contains many pieces of the puzzle that when assembled reflects a scene of who we are and why? Have a good evening.

I had an easy day at work. I changed jobs awhile back and am adjusting to having more time and less work.
It's a hard transition

Hmmmm, more time and less work...That should be really hard to adjust to... JS. Lol

It was a wonderful day in my little world. Well almost. My neighbors dad that was in the motorcycle wreck passed away. He was 51. He had asked his wife to go on that last ride with him but she couldn't get away from work. Well, there went my smile. Sorry.

Sad --- that's one reason I made a change in my workaholic ways. Missing too many of life's little moments.

It is reported that Harriet Beecher Stowe (sister of Abolitionist Henry Ward Beecher and author of Uncle Tom's Cabin) visited your area in 1833 and observed a slave auction which is depicted in her novel.
Enough history, now time to feed chickens and get ready to mow grass. LOL
There is a cabin on US68 on the way to Lexington that proclaims it is the ACTUAL CABIN where Harriet Beecher Stowe wrote "Uncle Tom's Cabin". Historical Plaque and all! Well preserved by the KY Historical Society. It's right after Maysville and right at the Washington red light.(If that tells you anything) I 'spect you could use Google Earth 3D and walk around it.

So, did anyone ever figure out why all of the birds died?

So all of us could come to this thread and meet each other. Finding new friends to chat and share with, it was all part of a grander scheme

Ah, well, I don't mean to take a morbid tone on this, but it occurs to me that, if this incident actually happened, then we should all be concerned and invest a bit of effort into discerning the cause.

Afterall, if there IS something out there that is causing the sudden death of anyone or anything within its vicinity, then we could wind up 'chatting' about all of those "new friends" we met online who aren't with us anymore because no one bothered to exercise a little effort into discovering the cause of the bird deaths...

Just saying.

There are several places throughout the state that lay claim to being the actual cabin where she "wrote" her book. I suspect she visited several cabins-areas, but did not "write" in any of them.

That is why I stated that "it was reported" that she had visited a slave market around Maysville which is a strong possibility since that was a "jumping off" point for run-aways crossing into Ohio over the river and many were recaptured by bounty hunters along the Maysville-Lexington Turnpike.

It would not have been uncommon for Harriet Beecher Stowe to visit several places that could have had some bearing on her 1851-52 book "Uncle Tom's Cabin". She was born in Connecticut but moved to Cincinnati at the age of 21 where she was a schoolteacher and novelist. She returned to Hartford after 1863.

I am late, was watching "RED TAILS". The story of the 332nd black fighter squadron known as the Tuskeegee Airmen that escorted the heavy bombers on the first bombing run of Berlin.

Later, I will watch Jimmy Stewart (who was one of the bomber pilots with the 8th Air Force) appearing in the Alfred Hitchcock classic "Vertigo". So have a good night and party without me, 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.
