It is hard to imagine tha hardships our ancesters
went through.

My great great grand fathers nephew died of measels
after just a couple of months of active duity during tha
Civil War.

Read what happened to my great grand mothers brother.

{alt}

The distance from City Point, Virginia to Choctaw County,
Mississippi was over 850 miles.

Now, That is what I call a rough row to hoe.

Thanks fer lOOkin,

Tabdog

Tabdog;

I have another epic journey, for you; My great grandma, in 1885, WALKED from Beeler Kansas, to Viola, Kansas, just to give birth to my  grandma! This was in April as my Grandma's birthday was in the first week of May. That  is nearly across the whole state which was still pretty wild in 1885!

Get yer map out and count the miles on all the possible routes.... at THAT time... I get an AVERAGE of about 150 miles, and I bet it took better than 8 days.

My great grandma died at about 100 or a bit older: 1857 to 1959 is 102 years!

I would like to know WHY she was walking and where my great grandpa was, at the time.... could be an interesting story, here. There also seems to be some holes in it, to fill!

Tabdog I have been researching my wifes great-great-grandfather who fought for the Confederacy in Tennessee, James Pyatt Lowe. Those were some real tough Americans that had to survive after the war while northern carpetbaggers were raping the South. Thats why after 144 years they still will not forget! I wonder if the current generation could survive after a foreign invasion? I know my son can not survive without his Wii and Blackberry!

My ancestor William S McNatt was taken prisoner in 1862 for not giving the oath of allegiance to the Union.(He owned horses that had run in the Kentucky Derby. I think possession of those horses had a lot to do with him being taken prisoner.) He was 52 and not a soldier. He was taken from Western Tennessee via boat to Northern Illinois, disembarked and marched to Camp Douglas Chicago. His 3 sons Joined the 21st Tennessee Cav and rode with Forrest for the duration of the war after their father was taken prisoner and the family farm burned. William never made it back. He was released in 1865 and died in Northern Illinois on the WALK back. Tough times indeed.

Hay VN,

That was a time we can only emagin.
It is odd that some of us do not seem
to care what happened to our family
and nation many years ago.

I think our history and our families are
important enough to preserve and honor.

They sacrificed so much, we should be
that deticated to their memory. We
should not let them down.

Happy Huntin,

Tabdog

I hope they do not have to find out what would happen if we were invaded.

They seem detached.

Lets hope that future generations can be a nation with integrity and honor.

I know how you feel.

We have issues that our leaders seem to want to skert by. The public seems

to be content to keep it coposettic.

But we need to realize that the world will not take care of itself.

That is what we are here for.

We need to try to make the world a better place.

So, even if we think things are OK, we still need to improve.

That includes honoring those who gave so much for us.

Happy Huntin,

Tabdog

The horrible experiences of that Generation gives a deepness of character that we can only read about. Some of the new generation, well sometimes it feels like they cannot even imagnine it..

The Rebs should never have picked that fight. That's all there is to it.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

It goes much deeper than that, much more than picking a fight! In part, it was a machination to deprive  the Cherokee of a large piece of territory, starting with Georgia that wanted it and ending with the north getting it and the Cherokee, being dispossessed and removed to Oklahoma. It backfired and got badly out of control.

Now, I have probably spilled the frying pan into the fire... but I will not enter into an argument on history! Since it is recorded that both sides USED Cherokee territory and the Cherokee freeing of slaves, as an excuse to have a war.

There is exhaustive writing, on this subject.... as well, some of my ancestors and relatives, were involved, so I know about it.

Such a thing would not be done, today, as it would equate to what goes on in Darfur.

Any way you look at it, the Civil War was bad and had far reaching bad results, some of which have extended into modern times. It really should not be the subject of humour, no matter how light.

If anyone has been offended by what I have said, I am sorry, but them are the facts mam.
