    Well, Patrick, I guess one would have to know what you mean by "rustic unfinished log chairs"?

    If you mean any chair you'd buy at the store today, then the answer would likely be no.

    Do you really think people are so concerned with how you are reenacting that it somehow ruins their day? That is an awful... odd... assumption.

    That makes a LOT of sense. The shock of the blast so close to its hull probably battered the crew into insensibility and they died at their stations.

    Thank you, sir.

    I was un aware of this photo.

    Interestingly, this General was my Gr., Gr., Gr. grandfather's boss. He was in the 4th Ohio Vol. Cav as a Lt. and Eli Long was his General.

    Of course the story is great. But it most certainly must be related as "probably apocryphal." There isn't a scintilla of proof to prove the tale so it should always be a story with an asterisk.
