Song of the South: Freedoms just another word for nothing left to lose.

Stolen from Texas Fred.

I do NOT celebrate this *other* so-called holiday. You can celebrate YOUR heroes and holidays as you wish and I will celebrate MINE! I bear no ill will to those that celebrate the *other* holiday, I hope they are open-minded enough to feel the same in return.


Robert Edward Lee (January 19, 1807 – October 12, 1870) was a career military officer who is best known for having commanded the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia in the American Civil War.


January 30, 1975, Senate Joint Resolution 23, a joint resolution to restore posthumously full rights of citizenship to General R. E. Lee was introduced into the Senate by Senator Harry F. Byrd, Jr. (I-VA). The resolution was to restore the U.S. citizenship to Robert E. Lee effective June 13, 1865. This resolution was the result of a five year campaign to posthumously restore Robert E. Lee’s U.S. citizenship.

On September 28, 1870, Lee suffered a stroke. He died two weeks later, shortly after 9 a.m. on October 12, 1870, in Lexington, Virginia from the effects of pneumonia.

Here in Texas we take our holidays, traditions and heritage quite seriously.

Read the entire story, Fred went way beyond what was needed to present a factual and well written piece.

Interesting Historical Post

The above has an interesting story about the War of Northern Aggression. Having had family on both sides, as well as both Catholic and Baptist this points out something that should be noticed. At least in my opinion. That being that we were, and are, much more alike than different.

Northerners preferred ale, Southerners beer. Northerners preferred revolvers, and Southerners sabers. Both liked pretty women, but both preferred a woman with brains.

Southerners liked pork, and Northerners did also! Beef was the property of the gentry, at least until the west was opened up, and bison tongue was a delicacy!
