Album Review: Willie Nelson - 'Last Man Standing'

While Willie Nelson isn’t the last of the great country music stars of the 1950s and 1960s (Roy Clark, Jan Howard, Stonewall Jackson, Connie Smith, Charley Pride and Bill Anderson are still around), the title still seems appropriate as Willie is one of the few still active, albeit less active than previously. 1,027 more words

155th Anniversary of the Battle of Chancellorsville

My husband and I have visited most Civil War battlefields together, but Chancellorsville is the one site I visited alone.
