And I bet that site did not tell you that when the Yankees occupied Stovepipe's hometown of Henderson, that he and and 2 other guys snuck in around dark and fired on their headquarters running around the brick house where they were located and were firing shotguns at will thus the "Battle of Henderson". The Union soliers scattered back into the house firing blinding out of the upper windows and proceeded to kill a hog and it tracked around the house obviously "bleeding like a stuck hog" and these fine marksmen claimed they had killed or wounded 'a many a rebel" while StovePipe and is two associates went off into a nearby field and slept soundly for the rest of the night. LOL The Evansville Journal grabbed the headlines : "BLOODY WAR ON THE BORDER, Provost Guard attacked by 300 guerillas. After a deperate resistance of over 9 hours, THEY SUCCEED IN DRIVING OFF THE ENEMY WITH HEAVY LOSS", Just too too funny.
LOL and LOL again! that was too much! Over three hundred rebels to choose from (so they said) and the only casualty was that poor old spooked hog!

I have never been a racist but I have always been a rebel. A black employee once asked me why I kept a little rebel flag sticker on the back window of my work truck and then turned around and hired so many men of color. I told him he needed to review American civil war history and then he would see just how little slavery had to do with the civil war. I know it had its part, but it was a small part.
I also informed him that I hired men based on experience and/or ability, and kept them based on their work, dependability, honesty and integrity and willingness to learn.
I have always thought that a persons true colors on the inside had little to do with the color of their skin on the outside.
I later partnered up with a black MAN and we made a small construction business into a pretty good sized company.
I would trust him with my life to this day. He was one of the hardest working family men I ever had the pleasure to work with.
Many people just dont understand that being a rebel doesn't mean a man is a racist.

Man that civil war history is some interesting stuff Wolf. I cant get enough of it.

I had to spit my grape-juice in the floor on that one right there. At least I avoided the screen this time.

Back then I spit pop all over the screen laughing when he first posted that. Save the ho foundation...LMAO! Ahhh man.

When I was about 16 I was in a girls private school and every Sunday we attended church services with the people that lived in a nearby town. One Sunday my best friend was acting the fool during communion and I got tickled and spewed my grape juice all over the older lady and her beehive hairdo.
I got kicked out of church for two weeks. Didn't seem like much of a punishment because it meant I got to sleep in for the next two Sundays.

@Imposter.. I agree that rebels are not necessarily racists, just strongly independent like ourselves. Some of my best employees and friends have been men and women of many races and cultures and I detest bigotry and racism.

In the StovePipe Johnson attack on Henderson, there were only 3 guerillas with shotguns but the Yankees drove them off after 9 hours of fierce battle with the hog. LOL but the Indiana newpaper reported it as 300.

and from the other side.. Union sergeant Robert Pierce (a Kentuckian) escaped his Confederate captors by floating naked draped over a fence railing pretending that he could not swim without the fence and needed a bath just like the other rebels that were frolicking in the river. His logic was that they could not tell much difference between a naked Yankee and a naked Rebel. It worked. LOL

It's like the great Pig War--- it's hard to believe a war started over the shooting of a pig
But it did

I watched Hitchcocks "The Birds" then went and closed up the peaceful chickens for the night. When he was asked how he got the birds to perform so well, his reply was that he paid them well. LOL

His "Psycho" come on in a few minutes, but watching the inside of my eyelids seems like a better choice. Good Night to all.

I had to look that one up MissE.
Interesting "as all get out"... Haha how about that slang term Wolf?
I already goggled it and every single explanation as to its origin is pure conjecture, of course I figure you was around when the phrase was first "coined" haha there's another one. So who knows you may have been the one that started it way back when... in a conversation with Adam maybe? You know I'm kidding Wolf, I am not much more than a decade your junior.

One pig getting shot over eating some potatoes made the history books and durned near changed American history. I recon the American settler had told the red coat to keep his pig out of his potato patch, and the red coat said: keep your potatoes out of my pig.
Does anyone know who ate the pig? I sure wouldn't have let it go to waste, and I would have traded a many a bushel of spuds for a pig...

Excerpt from the article I found:
For twelve years, including the Civil War period, the issue was debated. It wasn't until 1872 that the question was put to a third party for a decision. On October 21, Kaiser Wilhelm I of Germany declared the San Juan Islands American property; land north of the 49th parallel was Canadian, to the south it was American. A month later, British troops departed.

It all started over a pig! I gave three nice ones away not long ago!

It's interesting reading about that time period, I'm going to have to get that book you have.
History is very important, lest we forget hard lessons learned by our forefathers.
I never got a chance to pursue scholarly endeavors as much as I would have liked. I dont have a lot of regret's over that. My first daughter came along all of a sudden and you know how that goes. But hey I have time now. Wouldn't it be something if I could go back and complete my masters...then maybe even my doctorate?
Dr. Imposter....That has a nice ring to it...Dr. Imposter super --genius.. Hmmmm.

It's one of my favorite stories. There is a delightful children's book about it.

Miss E if I could lay hands on whoever is throwing those peanuts and stuff at you from the peanut gallery up in the balcony there... I would slap them around a little bit. It looks like they would just go away if they dont like what they see here.

I'll correspond with you fine people in a week or so Lord willing. I'm off down Wolfs way tomorrow to do a little vacationing and fishing, and get a change of scenery for a while.
Remember now- Too Tall loves you.
