    True, that is. The South gained much more on April 9th than they could know. Where else but America would mutineers be offered a pathway back to full fledged membership and participation in governance?

    Sherman. Now, there's a guy who knew how to take war to the people! If he has a reincarnation, I would want that person to point the way to Iran. Then, perhaps he could find North Korea for us.

    We didn't have the history forum then. It'll come around next time.
