Haa haa! :lol3:

It would make much more sense, and a huge entertainment value, if they used live rounds. I always hated "pro" wrestling, too! :lol3: :lol3:

I wish we would re-enact Sherman's burning of Atlanta. It would be a good excuse to get rid of the rif raf.

I'm not a Yankee, but that idea even appeals to me.

Far more rif raf in Philly, DC, Chicago, Detroit than there is in Atlanta, so we just need to do the reenactment in other cities.

A much better reenactment of the events of August 24, 1814.

The courage (or stupidity, whichever way you look at seems applicable, to me) it took to simply stand and walk, both at Gettysburg and countless other places, into what probably felt like certain death was amazing.


I also liked Sharpsburg and Vicksburg....not to mention Manassas.

I do like Sharpsburg as well. I like that every time it's been there, it's been almost deserted, unlike Gettysburg. It's much more amazing when you're the only one walking around that place.

It's funny, we have those historical markers all over around here. So bizarre to think there were soldiers marching across the potomac river at a lot of the spots I hunt. And no under armor!? :fingerhead:

I think the opposite, whenever I go to Gettysburg, since its usually in the summer. How did they function in wool everything, one little canteen of water, 100 degrees, and dusty as hell? It's downright amazing how much tougher people used to be.

Easier. For sure easier.

And Assa I agree with the heat, but marching with two year old hand me down shoes, in cold snow and ice. Feet black and puffy. No regular warm meals. Ugh.

Missed my point. It's obviously easier but I would say too easy. If people can sit on their ass and expect schit, AND get it....life has gotten way too flippin easy.

Ok, got it. I guess some do. For them maybe. I think there are plenty who like a hard day at the job place-whether that be in a shop or a barn or a high rise.

But even then they are only a couple days for themselves and the rest goes to the local, state and fed government. We should be working 4 8s.
