A lot of people accused TUFF and I of being the same poster, not true. I wish I could come up with stuff that funny, and that fast.
I know when I meet someone on here with a faster sharper mind than I ever had or ever will, it happens all the time, But old TUFF was the creme de la creme . The man was dangerous! I think he could have made someone laugh till they died if he tried.
Good old Una, gone but not forgotten.
Fond memories of my Una Fart Tater. I tried to make him chuckle when ever I could.

Is there any evidence that cannibalism occurred during the civil war? I mean there was motive (hunger) and supply (dead bodies)
I think about those movies about plane crash survivors that resort to it and was wondering.

@ I am Poster.. and you will admit that I was the first to figure out what your ID really meant. Yes you did get under my skin a few times, but it was all in fun or certainly is looking back on it. Yes UNA was brillant and we both enjoyed the challenge. Some heated moments were feigned just to egg it on to see what new stuff he could come up with. Poor old soul passed on and is sorely missed.

You are the only one to figure it out so far, and I post all around the world sometimes. That is my username on a... kind of humanities egg head forum too, none of them have figured it out either.
This time I am poster was a peer, and she's also a.... friend with benefits.
Gotts to go, later taters.

I am not aware of any having been reported, but if there was any cannibalism it might be more expected at POW camps in Andersonville Georgia (Confederate) and Camp Morton in Indiana or Camp Douglas near Chicago.

Some good reading is "The Immortal Six Hundred".. A story of the cruelty to Confederate Prisoners of War" as told by John Odgen Murray (one of the 600) who survived on rotten cornmeal and onion pickle at Fort Pulaski, Georgia (after the Union took control) which can be visited going from Savannah out to Tybee Island.

Andersonville gets the most publicity and the Commandant (Henry Wirz) was hanged of war crimes for witholding food and medicines when the fact is that he had none. IMO Camp Douglas seemed worse because they supposedly had food to spare and still withheld it.

With my prior posts regarding advances in technology brought about by the Civil War....

The first attempt at a submarine was done by the Confederacy in an attempt to break the Union blockade of Charleston Harbor that was starving the South. The CSS Hundley looked more like a long metal cigar than today's submarines and had a long metal spar with an explosive on the end of the spar. It ran just under the water, but not very far under. It killed no less than 33 crew members in developement tests.

It's only battle was launched just north of Charleton Harbor. It successfully sank th USS Housantonic but went down itself killing the commander Lt. George Dixon and his 6 man crew.

@Miss E Font.. You questioned earlier about the female roles of the Civil War:

The most renowned female "saw bones" was Dr. Mary Edwards Walker who was frustrated over not being able to acquire a commission as a battlefield surgeon. One of her handicaps was her propensity to wear slacks against the traditional dress code of the day. He wore a girlish straw hat decked out with an ostrich feather.

She could perform arm and leg operations as well as any of her male counterparts and received the Congressional Medal of Honor in 1865.

Back a few years ago there was a woman,(born and raised in Houdorous)in several of my college classes. They were always in political turmoil and when the sirens screamed parents drove madly to the schools to pick up their kids then headed for the mountains. Her mom kept the "running bags" in the closet by the front door. Contents? Toilet paper! Because "there's no way I'm going up in those mountains with 5 kids and no toilet paper!" Lol
Would you know if a student HAD to continue doing the homework in an online class ie. hw4,5 to avoid being counted as a no-show before the fa distribution date? Or would said student be counted as participating because he/she had completed the orientation asgnmt even though they were not up to date in the classwork? IF said student had already decided to drop the class AFTER the fa dis. date because he or she already had plenty of science credits already completed and needed to devote time to particularly hard EDU and agl, classes + another science class.
So, main question: would he/she be counted as a no show if he/she stopped completing all assignments in said class at this time or not? Thank you in advance.

Dr. Mary Edwards Walker's biography is available online via Google. She was the first woman to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor and the only one for next 100 years.

There was a civil war history show on the history channel early this morning about how a buttload of Union soldiers escaped in the night past a vast Confederate army in Nashville, some of them even went over to Confederate campfires to light their cigars and pipes during their retreat. I think they said the Union General was Scofeild...I think. Later when the Confederates caught up to the Union troops the union fellows were dug in, it ended up being a decisive Union victory.

Done cooked, I had steak to the third power (cubed steak), baked potato and spinach. I'm strong to the finish cause I eats me spinach.

Whoowee!!! Sorry I don't know the answer to that one. It was my daughters classes towards her masters so she certainly would know but my classes were old fashion classes. You know, sit in the chair and listen to the teacher. Maybe someone else on here would know..

I am not the grammar police but I had a chuckle at the buttload of Union soldiers. Siri does absolutely crazy things to my words when I voice text and I get in trouble. So I understand how things get switched around . Lol

No rowboat for me today :-(
I mowed, I hung about 10 "no trespassing " signs , I cleaned and filled the chickens watering cans, I hurt and I ache. Those signs were rough to hang. I picked out a tree, drove the ATV very close, climbed in the ATV bed so I could reach higher and used the cordless drill to attach the plywood signs to the tree. Then I had to climb back into the drivers seat. I am old. Im not as flexible as I used to be. I hurt and I ache.
