Saw on the news today where Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain's Civil War Medal of Honor was found in a book at a church sale and returned to the Maine museum where it was authenticated to be the real medal.

Chamberlain's 20th Maine regiment was charged with holding the extreme left flank of the Union lines at Gettysburg on "Little Round Top". After running out of ammunition and to keep the confederates from sweeping around their flank, he ordered a bayonet charge sweeping down the hill swinging like a "door". Chamberlain was not a career military leader but a former professor from Bowdoin College.

AW,
It is also noted that Lt. Holman S. Melcher ordered the bayonet charge but that proves not to be the case. Melcher had approached Chamberlain about going forward toward the confederate flank to recover some wounded men. There WERE out of ammo and he mentioned to Chamberlain that they would be fixing bayonets. Word spread so quickly that Chamberlain, when he did give that order found the men under Melcher's command already charging down the hill with bayonets fixed and the Confederates scattered... It is not the main point. IF the Union had lost at Gettysburg the Confederate Army "could" have marched unimpeded all the way to D.C. and entire outcome would have been changed.

And so went the "War of Northern Aggression"...

yes you are correct. I read somewhere that Chamberlain (having been a professor) was just better at writing the story and was not even awarded the medal until later. And like most people, he most likely embellished the story to better include his own participation.

In my reading some authors claim that the main issues with that war involved money (on both sides), fear of the loss of same, status, and trying to force their beliefs on to others. Also that many people of the south did not favor the secession but it was pushed through by politicians desiring to be big fish in a smaller pond. Sounds much like current times.

I have recently learned that some benefits from that war with the Southern States out of the Congress included the western expansion with the HomeStead Act of May 1862, The National Currency Act of Feb 1862, and the awarding of lands for the building of the railroads and telegraph lines. Also that the literacy rates improved significantly since many needed to learn to read and write to exchange letters. I found it somewhat interesting, tht even after the secession the one thing that remained in the South under control of the Federal Government was the Post Office.

How many of you threaders got your AARP bulletin this week? On page 46 they compare prices between today and 50 years ago. They used a minimum wage from then and minimum wage now to tell how long a person would have to work to earn money for a half gallon of milk. Then? 25 minutes. Now? 21 minutes. But a tank of gas: 3.4 hours then and 8.4 hours for now.
One thing I don't understand is that "today" the typical CEO earns $4,615.38 per hour? Wow!$35,000.. Per day?? I knew I was poor but... Wow
I know what you mean Anne girl. Things are becoming very disproportionate.

Off subject- but did you ever play with those connect the dots books that form clear pictures if you did them right, when you was a little Anne?
I did. I really liked connecting those little dots, I still do. Remember now, old too tall loves you th. ;) That one was a wink AND a smile.
Not enough time for much of this topix stuff today- back to work.
Hi ho, Hi ho, its off to work I go....

I did not think that a linear algorithm of a binary encoded hexadecimal expression of a dot matrix would hang around very long. More research is required. LOL

qwerty has the best dang moniker I have ever seen in all my born days, and I've been to three worlds fairs and a goat roping contest. The pure genius of its simplicity....
Man Oh man.

0010111010111010000001 That is the answer...

If the question was translate into binary function. ie, B(f)=765568+1 that is.

(just to see if that also gets removed qwerty.)
Trial and error, the very foundation of the scientific process.

My new model stands.....for the time being.

Wolf I was looking at some levels at tractor supply a little while ago, and dont you know this thingamabob has placed an add for a real nice Irwin level right to my left on here.
Man I think they just finally made a sale. Its a right good sturdy looking level. Just what I need for when I re-firebrick the fireplace next month.
Wonderful technology, but it makes a man think he is being watched somehow or another.

Dear NSA,

I'd like to buy the world a home and furnish it with love,
Grow apple trees and honey bees, and snow white turtle doves.
I'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony,
I'd like to buy the world a Coke and keep it company.

Hope your work day went well. We had the craziest rain storm around 3:30 this afternoon. Couldn't see the pond 130 feet away! I was concerned about a tree falling and hitting the house. Alls well ... G'nite

We aint highfalutin brainy types Anne, some of us just like numbers, history, finding out where slang terms like highfalutin came from and stuff like that.

Don't you go feeling unwelcome in any way now girly.
And don't forget- imposter loves you.

I've posted under twelve or more names on here, fooling all but one that I know of, and you seen how I trolled hard when I trolled. You have also seen these are nice people here, stick around. True human beings are getting scarce these days.
Now I gotta go look up that unit or whatever it was he posted.
