Dude, they dumped our ancestors into the swamp so they could steal the land. Now their ancestors celebrate the culture that grew out of it.

And don’t forget the teachers. They’re risking life and limb going back to the sanitized classrooms.

Don’t forget the NFL players. It’s a WAR every weekend while they play like a pack of hungry dogs.

Professor in college pointed out the ungodly amount of meat those guys ate each day (up to 9 lbs per person) and were still essentially starving from burning it up in no time with all the activity they undertook. Keto at its purest.

I think you forgot to add “2020 BLM Activist” to your list. These guys are on the frontlines taking on the US government.


I think you mean they are taking on the democrat governments.

My first ancestor to come to America was one of these survivors. Came as a 9yrs old indentured servant. John Chandler was his name

I realize it's largely fiction, but I think The Renevant portrays a lot of what was so tough about life in the wilderness. And these guys at least knew a little bit about where they were going.

It would be the equivalent of going to Mars or bottom of the ocean today.

Dude, read about Shackleton and Henry Morgan Stanley. Also early western scouts: hickock, kitt Carson, Cody. You’ll realize how big a pussies society has become.


Just look at the famous picture of William T Sherman. He’s a hard man

I agree, that show illustrated what I would think was reality. Indian camps weren't these nice tents in a pristine meadow, but probably a packed mud, dirty, fly infested, festid place in the woods. Guys that survived were probably immune to almost every fecal borne disease around.

Everybody in general was just much tougher than they are now, even 35 years ago. China would be doing us a favor if they launched an EMP to knock our power out for months and months.........

My 1st ancestor arrived 1640-ish to Baltimore area. However, his descendants were already in what's now called Indiana during the Revolutionary War. Ya know what was in Indiana at that time?



That's about it, except for the hostile Indians trying to kill them.
