Eh buddy they took down a couple of my posts again, its something how they'll leave up the craziest things and take down serious posts for no apparent reason.
Wolf could have cracked into the website I spoke of in a heartbeat, but I doubt if he could have told me how to do it on here. That's some complicated stuff. And old Wolf doesn't even think he's the best thing to come along since Vaseline.

@Nope; if you see this will you tell me why they do that, if you know, please? All I did was ask Wolf a question and poot it was gone.

Interesting night. Ate pizza and watched a dvd on Dachau, Sachenhausen, and the Liberation of Auschwitz. One or the other upset my stomach.

I'll go if you will, I'll be the big guy in the coon skin cap... toting a hawkin rifle. I'll know you by the red hair, green eyes and red high heels. Man oh man. Whew! Its getting hot in here.

I reckon old Daniel was pretty crooked in his business dealings. I have heard that some old Boonesborough records showed that he swindled a partner out of money for years and years.

I once went on a date with a navy guy in Millington Tn
Because he had those adorable Davie Crockett suede boots that laced up the front with fringe at the top

Some interesting history in that area. Confederate Edmund Kirby Smith invaded Kentucky via the Cumberland Gap and at the Battle of Richmond Ky, they beat Union General William "Bull" Nelson and held over 2000 Union troops captive on the Madison County Court House lawn.

The tide was turned at Richmond by Conf. General Patrick Cleburn who used two companies of "Sharp's Shooters" (later converted to be called Sharp shooters). Prior to the Sharp's rifle the effective range of the smooth bore was about 150 yards, but the Sharp's had a rifled bore and a telescope with a range of up to 1,700 yards.

The Sharp's shooters were disliked by both sides and considered "demons" because while just going about their normal camp routines, they could be easily picked off by these snipers from great distances.

One story in my book tells about how these demons casually set up their equipment among regular troops and were asked to go ply their trade some place else. They did not think it appropriate to pick off some enemy just having his morning coffee. I suppose it was much like the old west where it was not appropriate to shoot some guy in the back.

I suppose when the enemy is hovering around a camp fire trying to make coffee and stay warm from the overnight cold that there is no war at that moment from lower level individuals but more love for humanity and it is more fair to give him-her a fighting chance?

And during the Civil War, the "enemy" was not always men, nor did all the women volunteer for nurse duty. Hundreds of women enlisted (as men) for both Union and Rebel sides from poor, rural areas and were not particularly well educated but enlisted primarily for the rare opportunity to obtain a paying "job" even though they had no real interest one way or the other in the war issues promulgated by the politicians and people of money.(Sound familiar?)

Sarah Rosetta Wakeman (alias Pvt. Lyons Wakeman) of the 153rd New York Volunteers (who was a little better than most at writing) wrote home that she obtained $152 for enlisting and $13 a month and would send more money home when she got it.

Her letter: "Mother, if you are a mind to send me a box of apples and a bottle of cider, you may. The rest of the "boys" are getting boxes of stuff from home... don't mourn for me, for if I never return I hope I shall meet you all in Heaven... The weather is cold and the ground is froze hard, but I sleep as warm in the tents as I would in a good bed. I don't know the difference when I get asleep. We have boards laid down for a floor and our dishes is tin. We all have a tin plate, and a tin cup, and a knife and fork, one spoon. We have to use the floor for a table. I like to be a soldier very well".

This is very interesting. One of my favorite eras is the impact WWII had on the traditional role of women
To fight a war for a country that had not yet given women the right to vote (19th amendment ) is intriguing

When I went into the military, there was no particular Patriotic fervor. We only knew there would always be food, clothing, and a roof of some kind over our heads and we would be able to go somewhere and have passage into adulthood and not be left behind to be forever considered to be a "wimp". And that would be better than trying to subsist on no job or a low paying job (if we could even get one).

We had no idea why there was even a war or where it was being fought geographically? I don't think anything much has changed and wars would be different or end entirely if the recruits were more experienced with "life".
