 Remember Jeff Davis?
Remember Jeff Davis?
It hasn't been easy getting people excited about celebrating the 200th birthday of that tall, gaunt, bearded, Kentucky-bred president who was born in a log cabin and went on to lead his people through a bloody civil war.

No, not Abraham Lincoln. It's that other tall, log cabin-born Kentuckian, Jefferson Davis, whose 200th has turned out to be something of a lost cause. picked by 2manyusernames 4 years ago

 Happy Birthday, Mr President
Happy Birthday, Mr President
It's not just Darwin today, but as Bornbad was kind enough to give a shout out to a Great Brit born today I'm here doing the same by winging a huge chunk of birthday cake across the pond to one Mr Abraham Lincoln - 12th February 1809.

Now does anyone have his address. I know it's somewhere in Gettysburg. picked by pocksucket 3 years ago

 Seven Civil War stories your teacher never told you
Seven Civil War stories your teacher never told you
Perhaps your history teachers failed to alert you to these Civil War facts: Jefferson Davis nearly got mugged by an angry female mob; Abraham Lincoln loved the Confederate anthem "Dixie," and Paul Revere was a Civil War casualty. picked by 2manyusernames 2 years ago

 Was The Confederacy Defeated By Southerners?
Was The Confederacy Defeated By Southerners?
Most textbooks teach us that the north won the US civil war thanks mostly to their larger population and industrial capabilities. Another possibility is the fact of the internal divisions in the south had more to do with the Confederacy defeat than anything else. picked by 2manyusernames 3 years ago

 Has copy of Lincoln Letter Surfaced?
Has copy of Lincoln Letter Surfaced?
A Texas museum hopes a document found in its archives turns out to be an authentic government copy of Abraham Lincoln's eloquent letter consoling a mother thought to have lost five sons in the Civil War.

If so, it could be worth lots of money picked by JoshSF49 3 years ago

 Civil Rights Victory Being Ignored
Civil Rights Victory Being Ignored
Normally when the US wins a civil rights violation lawsuit there are press releases as well as much trumpeting and fanfare. Yet somehow the win against this blatant case of racial disenfranchisement has gone unreported and unrecognized. The lawsuit was won Feb 27th. It started back in 2006. picked by 2manyusernames 3 years ago

 Test of Lincoln DNA sought to prove cancer theory
Test of Lincoln DNA sought to prove cancer theory
John Sotos has a theory about why Abraham Lincoln was so tall, why he appeared to have lumps on his lips and even why he had gastrointestinal problems. The 16th president, he contends, had a rare genetic disorder - one that would likely have left him dead of cancer within a year had he not been assassinated. picked by muppet 2 years ago

 That Bette Davis Stamp? It is PC for different reasons than you think
That Bette Davis Stamp? It is PC for different reasons than you think
The assumed censorship of the cigarette on the post office's Bette Davis stamp caused all sorts of uproar. Problem is, the source image didn't have a cigarette in it so it wasn't removed as some thought. However it was altered for PC reasons. The original had Ms Davis wearing a mink coat. picked by bernardblack 3 years ago
