[quote]Manassas? That's where the South could of likely easily taken Washington, but didn't pursue the retreating soldiers, but instead collect useful items left by the North?[/quote] People make taking Washington sound a lot easier than it would have been, but yes that is the battle. It is also...

re: Judge rules against opponents of removing Confederate memorials ... - JustGetItRight
I'll use them interchangeably but I tend to lean towards the name that incorporates the geographic location which is usually the Confederate name. That isn't due to any sense of loyalty or obligation, just that it makes the most sense to me but there are exceptions like Antietam where the creek rea...

[quote]Do you mind expanding on that?[/quote] I can't speak for wadewilson, but as a battlefield commander, PTG Beauregard was pretty inept. For starters, the decision to fire on Sumter was decidedly ill-advised. The fort's ability to threaten Charleston could have been eliminated at any time...

[quote]I think the bolded is key. He wasn't keen on the idea of acting upon his personal druthers against slavery if it came with the price of dissolving the union, IMO. And I don't say that with the intention of tarnishing his legacy at all. That explains the the timing and content of the EP, m...

[quote]This is true. And Lincoln didn't particularly want to do it. It was a political move--he's not the savior that some make him out to be, that's for sure. Also, if I recall correctly, the EP applied mainly to those of fighting age in the rebelling states, with the thinking that they'd b...

[quote]You had a Heisman RB to lean on last year and an [b]easier schedule[/b][/quote] Really? The east opponent sees UGA on the road replaced with Kentucky at home. Road trips to Auburn, aTm, and Mississippi State are swapped with trips to LSU, Arkansas, and Ole Miss. If anything, repl...

[quote] The Union fought for for Union - not to end slavery. Emancipation, when it came, was a military tool and it was generally unpopular in the north. The last thing northerners wanted was ex-slaves moving north. That's the curious thing about the time. Northerners believed free labor was mo...

[quote]Never said I was. But the perspective has changed over a couple of hundred years of just how despicable an ideology slavery is. Point being, and I feel like a broken record here..that these were folks who fought FOR, whether directly or indirectly, the right to own another human being..an...

re: Election 2016 - JustGetItRight
Here's a really interesting question. What happens if either or both parties end up having brokered conventions? The thought gets kicked around a lot, but it has the real potential to happen this cycle. On the (R) side, there are a ton of candidates still in the race. It isn't at all dif...
