And by the way chief....it was not a "Civil War" ....the South legally succeded.....we did not want to overthrow the U.S. government....we wanted to create our own country....of which we have ever right to do....
Dont know what history books your reading Mr. Obama Zombie.....but but as usual....your facts are pure fiction....your comment that the state of Georgia suffered minimally.....is furtherest thing from the truth...granted Savannah survived with out much damage.....because General Hardee left the city to fight another day...Shermans army of thugs ran sacked and destroyed EVERYTHING in its path 60 miles wide through the middle of the state to Savannah. Killed every bit of live stock that Shermans army could not use. Total and complete devistation....tortured thousands of Georgia residents by invading and looting there houses, dug up family graves looking for money....jewels...anything of value they could take with them..and there were more rapes than you could count....Sherman did not want to hold back his thugs....he encouraged it!!! And Columbia??????......thats for another post.....I will enlighten you later on that.....with facts....and by the way....you call me a idiot....hey chief....have you looked at your picture on the post????????????? Give me a break....
And you do know almost everything you said never happened. Any actual history book will tell you that. Almost no rape (eliminating that particular evil from war seems to be just about impossible) no shelling of women and children, Atlanta and Savannah were taken with almost no damage. Georgia, like North Carolina, suffered minimally. Yes Columbia was burned to the ground. But to say Sherman was the sole cause of that is to ignore the facts, but that seems to be the way of things surrounding the Civil War. historians lay the blame at several peoples feet, including Wade "Fight them from building to building" Hampton, drunken troops on both sides, and a series of blunders by Gov Magrath. Keep living in your little world where Sherman was some demon who attacked the pious and pure south, those of us who actually study history for a living will be content with the facts.
Second only to Hitler.....You are an idiot. Complete idiot......
Yes, thats right....seems you may want to check your intellect my friend...Sherman not only shelled inocent women and children (Atlanta G.A. Columbia SC) He torched both cities... completely devistated most of Georgia and S.C. What he commanded were not soldiers....but a murdering raiding party....yea...right behind Hitler....and also....the crews of the H.L. Hunley were one of the bravest human beings to walk the planet.....
Second only to Adolph Hitler? You are literally too stupid to insult
"if we would have had 100 H.L. Hunleys laying around" -- so, I take it you're a fan of suicide bombers? and Kamikazes?
on the other hand.....if we would have had 100 H.L. Hunleys laying around, we could have held Charleston.....My great, great, great grand father Private Alvis Miller was there on Sullivans Island SC until Jan. 24 1865.....
This song totally sucks, and so does the Sherman the worse war criminal second only to Adolf Hitler.....
..."to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the War of Northern Aggression"... and just in time to celebrate another defeat of the same anti-government ideology (think nullification) that led this country into THAT debacle. Good bye PINOs (Patriots In Name Only). Again!
How a punk rock band should deal with winning a local award:
i am very thankful for the oppurtunity my band (shipwrecked losers) had to play the music farm. We got lucky. just cause you play a sold out show at the music farm doesnt mean anything. there are so many bands not just in charleston but everywhere that will never get recognized the way my band and SLO has. So to everyone who did or didnt vote for my band as top punk band of 2013 i wanna say thank you. Really if it wasnt for the fans bands wouldnt even exist!!!!
War nostalgia sucks. Americana kinda sucks, too.
On the other hand, this song will make you cry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUGb-6VuqGU
Those darn udsills
No, he didn't, but that isn't what the song is saying. The song is referencing Beauregard fleeing ahead of Sherman's troops. He knew Charleston was lost, and evacuated Confederate forces.
Sherman didn't take Charleston
Thanks for writing this article - Reid is a great guy, and Gone is a great album! Can't wait for the Triple Album Release Show this Saturday - the Whitt Algar All-Stars extravaganza!
Voting stated was till Oct 8 but it closed already.. Not right.. The day have not ended..
You get nominated by actual human beings going to the ballots during the nominations and physically typing in the artist you want to be voted on later on. Then the nominations are announced after people send in their ballots...this should make a lot of sense, but SLO fans don't seem to get that yet. Many of these artists have done amazing things as well, look into them. There's more going on then a sold out show at the music farm.
cause it's hip, man
