re: How would America be different if slaves were never brought over? - tigahbruh on 7/4/20 at 9:15 pm
The system of triangular trade established by the Portuguese, Dutch, English, Spanish, and French Empires, and various African kingdoms was reliant on slave trade to the New World. The triangular trade brought on the industrial revolution, which upped living standards and changed thought pattern...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Great Campaigns of the Civil War | Episode One - Fort Sumter - tigahbruh on 6/15/20 at 8:15 pm
Beauregard is a fascinating figure overall even though he faded from prominence during the war. Some bad moves at Shiloh and other campaigns but returned to Charleston and Richmond to do fairly well. Was offered command of the armies of Egypt and Romania. Said he'd prefer to die poor and unkno...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Is anyone here a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans? - tigahbruh on 6/11/20 at 4:44 pm
Ive had to work with the organization before. Nice guys, mostly. Really just enthusiastic geneaologists. Most are also in SAR and 1812. And into their world war ancestors too. A name change and losing the battle flag insignia would solve all their future issues (cuz they coming)....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Jefferson Parish HVAC Reccomendatons - tigahbruh on 6/7/20 at 1:39 pm
I used to go with the company that installed mine. 1 of the bigger companies in the metro area. Had multiple issues with them and they're really expensive (1 upside was they came out quickly on a weekend once). I'm looking to switch to a small operation myself. Been almost 2 years since my last c...

re: If they looted Amazon Distribution Centers - tigahbruh on 6/2/20 at 5:34 pm
It would change the minds of a lot of people who are buying into the "sweet protester" narrative. Formany it is all "Burn it down" until their cushy little world is affected. Would be wild if it created a temporary truce between Trump and Bezos....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Can anyone recommend a book that recounts that fateful day at Kent State University? - tigahbruh on 6/2/20 at 5:30 pm

SDS had no real grievance beyond undermining American culture and government. Their goal was to create as much violence and discomfort as possible and t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: How does anyone believe anything they see on the news? - tigahbruh on 5/27/20 at 5:41 pm
To be fair, journalism has always been a den of idiocy, inaccuracy, agenda, and the unethical. The myth is that it is has ever been anything else. The difference is that the corporate newsmedia acts largely as the "official" narrative driver of "the establishment" or whatever you want to call ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: College athletes should not return to campus until they've formed a union - tigahbruh on 5/19/20 at 3:34 pm
Here's a proposal: a large percentage of college athletes should be given free education, worth tens to hundreds of thousands on paper and priceless for life. They also get to audition for a job that will offer millions of dollars and the adoration of fans. In return, they play ball....
