You have every bit the insight into American history as you do your own. This is inspired.
I can only claim the inspiration to recognise and juxtapose.
I can’t even remember the last time I got to juxtapose…. damn.
I am told that the crows still gather every summer at Gettysburg ….
I always figured crows were more random than that. Still…
I claim Colonel Joshua Chamberlain (20th Maine) for Liberal Arts Professors everywhere. NEVER mess with a Liberal Arts Professor.
Strange as it may seem I was looking at a photo of Chamberlain yesterday, droopy moustache and all. I doubt if he and I would have seen eye-to-eye about a great deal politically, but he always struck me as being a decent guy. if he’s anything like the character portrayed in “Killer Angels”.
Wonderfully macabre image, very fitting for Gettysburg, and American Independence Day. Did that Shakespeare guy write any poetry?
I’ll ask him next time I run into him down at the pub.
