    Yes, the fight had its ups and downs. The result? Don’t know – we’ll just have to sleep on it.

    Google the “Fort Pillow Massacre.” American Civil War.

    Serious question:
    How many years have to pass before one can make jokes about such massacres as Ft Pillow?

    I don’t think the WWII Holocaust qualifies yet. Some day it will, even in Israel.
    Hannibal, Attila the Hun, Viking raids are fair game.
    Custer’s Last Stand is ok. Or is it just because we are not as sympathetic to the losing side?

    WWI? Any mustard gas jokes yet?

    @Donald Williams

    Fort Pillow was a massacre of black Northern soldiers and civilians at the hands of Rebels during the Civil War.
    Long enough ago to be fair game for jokes?

    As a Civil War “student” I hate to admit it, but every timeI read about Ft Pillow this is the picture I first get in my head. (It was named after Gideon Pillow.)

    Setting aside the time elapsed since the actual
    massacre, it seems the arrows ( indicating a
    skirmish with Native Americans ) would make
    the insensitivity thing sort of moot, since the
    cartoon wasn’t based on the actual incident.
