Ramblings of an Antiquated Mind

To every living heart and hearthstone…

  • Calling fallen soldiers heroes does not mean we are glorifying war
  • Every soldier who died on the battlefield wanted to be home
  • Policies that lead to war should be debated….not the memory of those who fight the war
  • Honoring our war dead is important, but there is nothing wrong with a good Memorial Day cookout
  • There is something inherently wrong with meatless burgers
  • Top that burger off with non-dairy cheese….
  • Still waiting for an authentic, gritty, moving film portrayal of the Civil War…one that doesn’t have to feel like a civics lesson with politically correct mentions of slavery
  • -Hint-  It wasn’t ‘Gettysburg’ or ‘Gods and Generals’
  • Friends don’t let friends reenact Confederate
  • If you want to learn more about the Civil War, visit a living history encampment near you….
  • Reading James McPherson’s “Battle Cry Freedom”  isn’t a bad place to start either….
  • I miss listening to Shelby Foote

Put some shoes on and take notes, Johnny !
