    In a similar vein; the federal holiday “President’s Day” is celebrated on the 22nd because so many in the South refuse to honor Lincoln’s birthday. Growing up in the North, we had two separate holidays.

    Grandpa might as well be living in the middle east: They too don’t get over things in less than… well more generations than there have been.

    Seen it blatantly displayed while traveling through these states. Suffer with it in the deep south. It truly is not “heritage”, just bloated racism and hate.

    Then vote for the guy from Indiana; it was once a hotbed of the Klan.

    What’s the use of being a grifter if you don’t have an intelligence challenged audience. With the help of a Department of Education run by Betsy DeVos, this country can maintain a majority of unquestioning followers, who will listen to any dog whistle…

    General Stannard’s Vermonters played a significant role in repelling Pickett’s charge. As the rebels sidled over to the Vermonters right, they went over the wall and lined up against Gen Kemper’s flank, pouring in a withering fire, annoying the rebels to no end!

    Longstreet was opposed to the fiasco Lee ordered at Gettysburg, which came to be known as Pickett’s Charge. Chamberlain (and his command), who led the soldiers on Little Round Top, was from Maine, not Vermont. Their defense of that position was critical — if not the decisive event — to the Federal victory in that battle.

    I think that this runs both ways in my personal experience… my mother in law votes straight ‘Democrat’ on the ticket, because her father did. She doesn’t know the name of anyone running, she has no idea what they stand for or what they propose to do, just votes for them cause they are democrat.

    Personally, I believe they should do away with the D & R behind the names and just put their voting records on there. Don’t worry about the party, vote for who lines up with what you believe and what you think is best for the country. It pays to be informed…

    As Faulkner said, in the South the past isn’t dead, it isn’t even past.

    Ignorance is past down from one generation to another. The analogy of ‘The Ham in the Pan’ is a good example showing that we do many things without knowing why.Mother and daughter were cooking Easter diner. Mom takes the ham out of the refrigerator and cuts off the heel of the ham. Daughter asks why and mom says that her mom did that. Well, grandmom was still alive so they called her and she told them her mom did that. Luckily great grandmom was still alive and called her. She replied " I did that because I didn’t have a pan big enough to hold the ham"

    Pickett’s Charge was not a voluntary action. They were ordered to their deaths. They bravely went forward. And they were annihilated. By troops from several states.

    If those in South Carolina are holding a grudge, it shouldn’t have been about Pickett’s fiasco, but about the results of Sherman’s march through the State after leaving Savannah and going north. His troops paid very special attention to that state.

    It is common for the losers to nurse their resentment, or suppress the truth. I visited a tiny museum in Bazeille, France, where the French “commemorate” the Franco-Prussian War. The post office 200 yds away was unaware of its existence ! A local resident finally directed me to La Musee de la Derniere Cartouche"- the Museum of the Last Cartridge. A heroic – but losing – defense against Bavarian troops. On display, the Pickelhauben (spiked helmets) of many dead Germans. NO French kepis. Fascinating !

    “Why can’t them damn furriners just get over all the nasty stuff we did to ‘em? That was decades ago! Now I’m gonna get my Confederate flag and protest the War of Northern Aggression!”

    And of course Pickett’s Charge was LEE’S fault…

    If you pick it, it will never heal.
