Wow Nate LaMar. What a arrogant person. He lacks the common sense of a dog.

Arrogant ? Help me out here, I've read the the article twice and just don't get your post. I did understand your post about Memorial day though, you have no respect for veterans.

Mr. LaMar's speech was factually inaccurate. Gov. Morton didn't dismiss the 1861 Legislature. He refused to call the legislature into session. He was afraid the legislature wouldn't appropriate money to raise troops for Lincoln's invasion of the South. So, Gov. Morton decided to get a loan from a southern Indiana railroad baron to fund state government. I'm not 100% certain, but I'm fairly sure this violates the state constitution.
Then Mr. LaMar stated that the Indiana Militia drove Morgan's Raiders out of the state. This is laughable, as well. As a graduate of West Point, Capt. LaMar should be familiar with Morgan's Raid and the reasons for it. To begin with, at the two battles fought in Indiana, Morgan's troops handed the Indiana Militia their ass. Morgan's goal wasn't to fight long, protracted battles. His goal was to cover as much ground as possible and draw troops away from Tennessee so Braxton Bragg could withdrawal without being harassed. Morgan accomplished his goal.
Mr. LaMar basically praised Oliver P. Morton for violating the state constitution. I have to wonder if this is his own political philosophy? This speech will definitely make me think twice about voting for Nate LaMar if he decides to run for Mike Pence's congressional seat.
