Not my circus; not my monkeys.
I've seen an ad locally for a very unauthentic living history event at Fort Negley sometime this year. Beyond that, I have not yet heard of an official commemoration, althought I know some good...
I can still taste the cornbread and bottle of sorghum we stole from those two ladies at BGR. **** good eating!
Hardly "un-reconstructed". "There is no North, South, East or West. We are one." That, sir, is capitulation to reconstruction.
I'm just saying there are better primary sources. Sam's is a...
Did you read the forward? Sam wrote that as a series of newspapers articles in the local paper. He left out much of the detail because so many mothers, fathers, grandmothers, etc., were reading...
Explain the role of the field artist as a reporter for major publications at the time versus a photographer. Then give them an idea of how a quick field sketch transforms into a woodcut...
Not to confuse matters, but I believe that fellow is wearing corporal stripes, not sergeant.
Keep in mind that home delivery of the mail was an experiment in a few northern cities and was not the standard for all mail for years.
South Union Mills sells them.
Ralsa Rice tells in his book "Yankee Tigers" of calling the company roll from memory in the dark while he and the entire company were dashing to the parade ground. The first company formed on line...

A thin slice of apple placed inside the tobacco will help it maintain it's moisture.
Message/mail sent on shirt.
Has anyone confirmed the end of Reconstruction?
I'll take it all! Will PayPal in a moment.
Cunningham, not Cunnungham. Pat Cunningham.
I hope you wrote it correctly on the check.
The thread is closed now, before I could get home and find the link I wanted to post to it. I decided the information was worth sharing, mostly because of the ignorance displayed by several folks...
For a while, I responded to that question, "I was a pimp in a house in (your city here). Saaayyyy, you look familiar! Don't you like the $2 special?"
Do you do a military impression or civilian? I can point you towards some nice ladies, but I am not aware of a single military group that allows women in the ranks.
You should also be prepared to act as a sergeant in the event you promoted by brevet. I once signed up for an event as a private, was told to be a corporal and arrived at the event and informed I was...
Just realized I did not include a price for the frock coat, #2. This coat cost me $200 new, plus the buttons and personalizing I put into it.
I'm only asking $130!
Thanks for looking!
Even before the war, "health water" was being sold at spas across the country. According to a listing in Francis Lord's book on sutlers, Poland Spring Water was being sold to soldiers via the...
