"The Civil War" or our "War Between the States" has always been a part of me since the first time I learned of it and began to study and read. I am less than an hour and a half from Shiloh Battlefield and have been there many times. I caught this video on another Blog and was mesmerized by the faces of the actual survivors of Gettysburg walking and talking with each other. I have never seen any film before of men still alive that fought the War, ghostly and haunting, my soul was sad for them as they surely were haunted too by being back there on the very ground 50 years later. I don't believe even 50 years would dim the memory of what they saw and felt in those hours that so many lots were cast and so many souls breathed their last.

- Just Another Savage!
- I’m a Southern Boy, just 56 last November, I get around here and there, Central America, Africa, Red Bay. I’m a Father, Grandfather, Husband, Artist and general flunky of sorts. Live in a little historic town in an old building I remodeled. Just wanted to hear myself think I guess, talk about the need of simplification, show some art, express an interest or two, brag on my dogs and see where it goes. That’s it!, That’s the deal, Thanks
