AW, I will say this. Having to drive that far everyday to and then from work would absolutely wear a person out on driving . You are so right about there's no place like home! I enjoy being home with my books, my boat and my better half. Or how about; I enjoy being home with my chickens, my cats and my (grand)children!

Much to do today so Good Morning to All and I'm outta here!

I did that trip several years ago with a good friend. It was a blast. Stayed at the tee pee motel, the blue moon and ate at the diners. Drank lots of Root Beer as each place had its own homemade version claiming to be the best. Cadillac ranch and all the hokey Americana-- a must do trip
That sounds wonderful...maybe someday I can do that

On the front cover, My book pictures George Armstrong Custer with his former classmate and captured Confederate Prisoner James Washington.

It states that the Civil War was the beginning of the end for the Mounted Cavalry due to the advances with longer range and repeating rifles. It states that Custer was very flamboyant and even though his career was tainted by Little Big Horn (where the Sioux had finally obtained contraband left over Civil War weapons), Custer was very adept during the war and was the youngest person to ever be promoted to Brigadier General in the Union army.

And contrary to some of the old Westerns, the Cavalry charges fairly much faded into the sunset after the Little Big Horn debacle. Horses were still used to get to where they needed to be, but the mounted charge strategy just mainly faded away with the strategy to be to fight from a dismounted and protected position. Interesting stuff.

I don't expect that I will ever be "scammed" about gay insurance and I don't particularly care if the gays do get scammed, so that blogspot holds no interest for me. LOL

I'll probably just add an addendum or rider to my existing heterosexual insurance policy -- just in case.
I'd rather be over-insured then under protected .

8 days after the Union victory at Gettysburg and 7 days after the fall of Vicksburg, Mississippi.. The New York city laboring, immigrant class rioted over the Union draft that had just become effective.

This was spurred on by anti-Administration "Peace" Democrats (known as Copperheads) that opposed the war and the Adminstration specifically opposing the fact that the rich could "buy" their way out of military service by sending someone else or paying $300 to the Federal Government leaving the poor immigrants the brunt of the duty to free the slaves. They had no interest in getting killed so the blacks could take their jobs and income. It was just not their issue and they refused to go and rioted.

Many African-Americans were beaten and left for dead while others were hanged from lampposts. In all 120 people were killed and the Colored Orphan Asylum on 5th Avenue was burned.

The Copperheads opposition to the war was in that Lincoln had gone beyond his Constitutional Limitations in violating the writ of "Habeas Corpus" and limiting freedom of the press, of speech, of person, of mail, of travel, and of right to bear arms, and due process of law. hmmmmmm !!

I don't know about that and in all my studies, I have never read such a report or that Lincoln had ever even met Harriet Beecher Stowe. Probably just a legend or myth and if it were true, I would have surely read about it in more than one place.

But I was just reading where her husband had traveled to Gettysburg to check on their son and was robbed by pick-pockets but went on to Baltimore where he fell ill and had to return home and she spent many days in anxiety over her husband as well as her son that had received a head wound.

Stowe supposedly went to Washington to verify the validity of the Emancipation Proclamation, but there is no substantial Historical evidence that it happened other than something her son wrote some 30 years later. Did she even meet with Lincoln? or was she invited to a tea with Mary Todd? Did her son embellish the story and it has been propigated by Internet enthusiasts? Legend or Fact? I can't say.

If the story had to pass the crazy Mary -- who knows. I have read several books about her. My favorite is how she roamed the streets with money and documents sewed up in her dress.

I have read those also, plus it is alleged that she held seances in the White House.

There were some crazy First Ladies!
JULIA DENT GRANT (FIRST LADY, 1869--1877)

Julia Dent Grant was cross-eyed her entire life. While that never stopped her from being a tomboy in her youth, or—remarkably—from developing into an accomplished equestrienne, it did lead to some embarrassing White House moments. At the galas she was fond of throwing, Julia had a habit of standing in the corner to avoid bumping into people. When she did manage to move, she did so in a noticeably sideways gait that some likened to the motion of a crab, often knocking into furniture.
