    I have lust in my heart for THE GUN. The gentleman with the ramrod paid $24,000 to have her built. The gun weighs 883 pounds, with carriage, over 1500 pounds.

    Nice work.

    Who won? :)

    Thanks.

    Not sure who won that one. My knees and ankles are sore from moseying around the battlefield. Met some great people in the re-enactors. They have researched their roles and history. Friendly sorts, they are happy to answer questions about Living History and about the time frame in which they act.

    Northerners should be glad that Forrest and Johnston weren't running the war effort, the south may have won. But Bragg was so they lost. I always thought it was interesting that the southern military training centers are nearly all named after the South's worst generals....Polk, Bragg......
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.
