Went out to my husband’s cousin’s ranch outside of Eldorado, Tx, this past Saturday. This place in probably a little more then 100 years old. It really feels like it got stuck in time somewhere around the 1950’s. 34 more words
Today's Sunday "Blog" From the Past was written by Andy Hall at Dead Confederates. Hall was responding to the claim in Texas State Senate Resolution No. 526 that "ninety-eight percent of Texas Confederates didn't own slaves." This quote is a wonderful example of the abuse and misuse of history by the Texas State Senate. The Texas State Senate was obviously stuffed to the gills with Texans who were both confederate apologists and historically challenged. Hall demonstrated that this statement was absolutely ABSURD. The Civil War was waged by the Confederacy to protect property, i.e. slaves.
