Мы должны таксировать блог немедленно!

We have intermissions here as well… … yes, I know… what the heck is that in my header…? Well, allow me to back up a bit. My “demonstration” in this post is aligned with the sentiments expressed by Andy in his post from the other day. It’s my way of voicing an opinion against anyone […]

Faded names on stones

May 31, 2010 by


Just another stone in a cemetery… But wait, he was a soldier… and he died in the closing weeks of the First World War… Makes you wonder a bit, huh? Or does it really? Who was the man? How did he die? Who were his parents, siblings, and maybe he had a wife. Did he […]

An image of Christmas Past… that is just as powerful today

December 24, 2008 by


Well, I think that’s about enough “trimmings.” Just want to leave you for the day with this image (one of several Civil War Christmas images in the larger collection of images from Harpers Weekly available at The Civil War). While it fits well with the Civil War theme of this blog, I think it says a […]

Account of Christmas Dancing in Page County, 1864

December 24, 2008 by


As a part of “trimming the blogs” today, over at Avenue of Armies, I just tossed in a short story of a rather busy Christmas dance circuit in Page County during the winter of 1864. The virtual snow against the black backdrop looks nice over there, though not quite as much impact as with the snow photo […]

Brrr, looks cold

December 24, 2008 by


I just added another photo over at Shenandoah’s Civil War. Since it is a winter scene, I figured that I would throw in the snow made possible through until January 4 (**update… I turne-off the virtual falling snow on 12/27 to make way for other images in which snow loses its “charm”). All-in-all, I […]

Turkey leftovers… yippeee!

November 27, 2008 by


Just wanted to say… I hope everybody had a great Thanksgiving! Thanks also for those who follow this blog and take the time to comment! Now that the big meal is done, I need to make a run to the grocery store and get some pumpernickel and swiss cheese… I love leftover turkey with swiss on pumpernickel (and I […]

A REAL threat to Southern culture?!

November 19, 2008 by


I couldn’t help it. After learning the other day about the Strange Maps Blog, I felt certain there must be something else there that might be worthwhile to mention regarding Civil War “memory.” Well, this isn’t exactly Civil War “memory,” but the Tea as a North/South Litmus Test sure as heck has something to do with […]

A day to remember… and appreciate

November 11, 2008 by


Don’t forget that behind each of the seals you see above are many, many people who have made, are making, and will continue to make sacrifices to maintain the stability of our freedoms. Thanks to all those who have done, are doing, and will continue to do that which is necessary. Now, I ‘ve got […]
