Dr Gordon Jones is an informative and interesting speaker. Those with an interest in the War Between the States might like to visit the vast collection of material on this subject at the Atlanta History Center.

It means he has to have a king size sofa to lay his obese carcass on while he has 3 large fans blowing on the highest setting because any kind of movement or exertion causes him/her/it to start gushing rivers of sweat. Believe me, you don't want to be around SKC when he/she/it starts sweating. The foul smell that comes from his orifices and pits are rather grotesque. The putrid stench from his body has permeated his trailer with revolting smells that can be smelled from 1/2 a mile down the road on a breezy day.

Debbie don't pay any attention to this mental freak known as the nut from California. She tries to destroy every thread with her racial hatred.

Anyone who not astute in Southern history and the expertise of the Southern soldier on the field of battle in defense of their nation should read more before posting their convoluted opinions inundated with profane racist remarks which remind us their deranged and demented mind. I suggest the "The Bedford Boys" by Alex Kershaw which is about the men from Bedford, VA and their contribution to the defense of their country. Those which prefer to post about subjects of which they have no knowledge are so foolish to allow everyone to know it by putting it in print for all to view. This is one reason why she is called, "nuts". Bless her little heart.

My Grandfather's family owned slaves. And he said everyone had fried chicken and fresh vegetables on the table EVERY night.
No one went hungry, the roofs didn't leak and they didn't work when it was raining or bitterly cold.
Contrast that the homeless, jobless people of today.
