Shelby Foote’s Successor

Civil War Chat

(August 15, 2017)  Fifty-four years ago in 1963 at the dawn of the second Civil Rights Movement, Shelby Foote published the second of his three-volume Civil War narrative. In his bibliographic essay, where he cited credits to those who helped him, Foote wrote, “I am obligated also to the governors of my native state and the adjoining states of Alabama and Arkansas [who resisted racial integration] for helping to lessen my sectional bias by reproducing in their actions during the several years that went into the writing of this volume, much that was least admirable in the position my forebears occupied when they stood up to Lincoln.”

Foote was living in Memphis at the time but he grew-up in Greenville, Mississippi where his viewpoint above was then unpopular among his peers. Other white Southerners of that era—and earlier—braved the hostility of their neighbors by speaking truth to power about racial…

Jerusalem in Photos from 1862: No mosques, no Palestinians – only ghost towns of massacred Christian areas

Palestine-Israel Conflict

A new photographic exhibition in London follows the journey taken by England’s Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) in 1862, as he undertook a four month tour around the Middle East.

And as usual, no sign of mosques or active Palestinian presence as the decades old argument from the Palestinian side to keep up the saga to fight and occupy, for the sake of jihad and foreign aid.

In the exhibition we find more photographs from Jerusalem in 1862, when the so called “palestinians” allegedly were already 1 million in population on land they profess to have “lost to Jewish occupation” a few decades later. The only problem with this argument is that, as with all photographs up to the second decade of 1900’s, there are rarely any Muslims or mosques to be found on any photographs. The only mosque – and a confiscated synagogue converted after Muslim invasion…

Why modern historians ignored the passing of Ludwell Johnson

Civil War Chat

(June 26, 2017) Earlier this month the foremost authority on intersectional trade during the Civil War, Ludwell Johnson, passed away. Although his work is cited in nearly all studies of such inter-belligerent trade, I am unable to find any remarks among prominent historians commenting upon his death. His passing shamefully goes unnoticed within the academy  because he was among the first to challenge the presently dominant “Southerners were devils” interpretation of the war.

Johnson’s works and and bibliographies provided many of the sources I used in researching my own book, Trading With the Enemy. Although modern historians may consider him a pariah for opposing political correctness, they will also likely rely upon his works and bibliographies for years to come. His Red River Campaign, which was written during the 1950s, is still in print.

Twenty-three years before he died, Johnson wrote the article below for Southern Historian, in…

Old Time Tennessee Hog Killing



Old Time Tennessee Hog Killing‭ ‬

In the fall of the year the neighbors would get together for a big hog killing.‭ ‬The time was right when the weather turned cool enough to safely butcher that years fat hogs.‭
‬It was a community event,‭ ‬folks came from all around for a day of good county visiting and hard work.

The men would kill the hogs and scald the hair off in a vat of boiling water,‭ ‬heated with firewood.‭ ‬Then butcher each hog getting them ready for the women to cut up for packaging and make sausage to taste,‭ ‬using their secret seasonings.‭ ‬It was then time for cooking off the lard (rendering), city folks might call it shortening.‭

Old stories were told by the elders and tales of that years farming season of whom grew the best corn might be the talk of the day.‭ ‬The younger men and…

The Terrible Truth About Abraham Lincoln and the Confederate War

Snap out of it, America!

Abraham Lincoln

President Lincoln has been all but deified in America, with a god-like giant statue at a Parthenon-like memorial in Washington. Generations of school children have been indoctrinated with the story that “Honest Abe” Lincoln is a national hero who saved the Union and fought a noble war to end slavery, and that the “evil” Southern states seceded from the Union to protect slavery. This is the Yankee myth of history, written and promulgated by Northerners, and it is a complete falsity. It was produced and entrenched in the culture in large part to gloss over the terrible war crimes committed by Union soldiers in the War Between the States, as well as Lincoln’s violations of the law, his shredding of the Constitution, and other reprehensible acts. It has been very effective in keeping the average American ignorant of the real causes of the war, and the real nature, character and…

The Sloan Journey to America

The Kitchen Table

By Richard Gwynallen

Mary Sloan
(circa 1745 – 1774)
Relationship to Fawn: 6th and 7th great grandmother

Fawn has the interesting experience of having one woman, Mary Sloan, as her 6th and 7th great grandmother. How that came to pass we shall see.

The Sloan clan enters our family tree when Mary Sloan married James Milligan in the province of Ulster Province, probably County Antrim, in Ireland around 1762. I have no immigration records, but Sloan and Milligan family members have a tradition that Mary and James immigrated with James’ father Andrew in 1765, arriving in Pennsylvania, then moving to North Carolina. The basis for this date is that in a newspaper article in the Statesville Landmark (North Carolina) in 1880, McCammie Milligan stated that an apple tree was still living on the old hold place after 115 years and it was planted by his great-grandfather, Andrew…
