Bama... you bad, bad man I didn't catch it first time around. Ever seen that trick floating around the internet where every word in a paragraph is misspelled but the first and last letter of each word are correct? Got me.
Reb... I don't think so. You need to read much more about what those men suffered through and I do mean suffered. It's hard to imagine marching from Kansas City to St Louis in December, or marching 318 miles in 14 days in a Minnesota winter w/ nothing more than a pair of blankets, a ground cloth and a great coat per man to try & stay warm at night. A modern combat infantryman might understand but I don't think too many would eagerly volunteer to do so. I know I wouldn't if necessity didn't demand such.
id invent a machine to take me back to the days of Calico Jack Rackham and Anne Bonny. it would be cool to hang with the pirates that struck fear into yhe hearts of sailors and yet found time to be lovers
