Folks it’s not a lesson learned, heck it’s rarely discussed and young people should never forget, heck how can they forget when they have no idea, truth be told, the stinking think tanks should be ashamed this isn’t mandatory why because it’s our distant relatives dead bones scattered and never recovered. So dam sad it bothers me, we simply should do whatever means necessary to teach this , say in a monthly meeting. these Lives matter, never got honorable burial just rotted away, dam disgusting. Well what we think we no is a small fraction and I’m certainly a person that believed half of what I read. far western Pennsylvania had very little activity I think, I mean the war of 1812 has early settlers residing along the rivers even around here farm the land. There are many relics in the ground corrosion away. I wish I could sit down with a person and interview that’s would be my bucket lister that will never happen, any YouTube channel that gives honest and accurate description on such. Boy I just can’t imagine killing your own brothers, nothing compared to that even today. Sadly America has failed miserably and my visits to cemetery remind me of the waste of lives. To understand today you must understand yesterday, 200 years ago isn’t to many generations folks.

When i was in high school (the 80's) my history teacher, David Zimmer, was a civil war reenactor and gave guided tours out to Gettysburg and what not. I'd say over half our history lessons were always on the Civil War. I didn't appreciate it as much as i do now though since i was so young. That's the problem with history, sometimes you don't appreciate it until you're older.

I can see the same thing happening in our near future. The storming of the capitol on January 6th by trumps supporters was only the beginning. I fear it will get much worse before long.

My great great grandfather was a courier for the CSA in Miss.
He enlisted at 16 saying he was 18, anyways a troop of Yankees came upon
him in the Greenwood, MS area, let him go but stole his mule.
And, I never say anyone "died in vain", every life had a purpose, beyond what we know.

Steve..amazing how the dozens of destructive riots, and tens of millions in damage done is swept under the rug, and a few idiots on Jan 6th are suddenly the problem. Think about it.

Site rules prohibit political discussion, so I suggest we let this one go.

I agree and so appreciate history & the lessons learned from it. My hubby & I have been traveling our great country in our RV since 2018. I got a Metal Detector in Arizona this year and have learned so much from these forums. We loved Gettysburg and recommend taking a guided tour which we didn't have the time to do. What was so special to us is how the entire town buried the Union & Confederate soldiers in groups and where they died. The unknown were buried together in a special place and each had a marker. The entire town spent months/years cleaning up the grounds and made it a living museum. We plan to go back and spend a full 3-4 days to see it all with a guide. We have also taken the time to learn the history of all of our places visited as well across the country. We are very grateful for the past sacrifices our forefathers/mothers of all creeds/races/colors/etc have made to ensure our personal freedoms we have today. Boston was another amazing city too.
