I told him that I knew that and in fact that my great-grandfather (who my son is named after) had fought in that campaign. President Reveley seemed quite interested until I mentioned that my great-grandfather's unit was the 11th Maine. He paused for a moment and then said, "Oh, those guys." He wasn't referring directly to the 11th Maine, of course, he meant all the boys wearing blue, woolen uniforms. He remained polite but that seemed to end our short conversation.
That's pretty cool. I didn't have any family in the country then, but my great-great grandfather was apparently a rough rider out of San Antonio.

I almost wish Bee hadn't died that day (or from wounds received that day). Although the uncertainty adds to the legend I guess.

And yeah I didn't realize that about W&L. I just see it abbreviated, and assumed it was that way when fully spelled out.

I guess connecting it to basketball: Jackson was indirectly killed by friendly fire. His loss had an incredibly negative impact on the South's chances. Are St. Joseph's injuries this year as detrimental? I haven't been following them much, but how has St. Joe's looked since Newkirk's injury? The loss to URI isn't bad. And the win over Fordham isn't great. I think tonight is a litmus test for both teams.

Haha I do like that moniker though. It holds some truth. Heck a large portion of the Virginia and the Generals didn't want to secede. Lee was even initially asked to be the commander of the Union Army.

You mean the Foreign Government trying to usurp our autonomy?

As to how Thomas Jackson got his nickname, you probably know that there is more than a little doubt that Bee meant it as a compliment. Some who were there maintained he was pissed because Jackson remained where he was, standing there like a "stonewall", instead of coming to his aid.

I enjoy history, too.
Yes, "Stonewall" on Offense isn't a compliment.
However the 2008 UR football Defense being nicknamed "Stonewall" was.

Speaking of football, and as long as this thread has veered as wildly off-topic as any I can recall recently, I'm sure everyone is excited that the JMU Dukes are FCS champions.

I am. My neighbor growing up was the coach that started their program. I was a ball boy when Charles Haley and Gary Clark played for JMU. I grew up with JMU athletics. To bring it back to the A10 a good friend's father was JMU's athletic director but instead of playing for JMU he went to UR on a football scholarship.

Re: Tuesday 1/10 Game

I would say Martelli - just because he has a mini-me as a sidekick that he can launch at Paulsen from great distances.

Paulsen would win the swimsuit comp since body-shaming is not allowed in 2017 and he would be considered brave.

Yeah, Mason's right, age difference or no age difference. Neither one will probably be packing but you just know that Martelli never leaves home without a shiv.

What is this FCS thing? And, speaking of off-topic, I thought I was on the Bandwagon for a moment, but there is no Schmidt bashing.

My Mom and Dad used to live on the South Carolina near Beaufort. I would never pass up the opportunity to take on the carriage tours of the city. The guides in Beaufort are actually quite informative. They are still pissed off at Sherman. Apparently he sold all the homes in Beaufort to Union officers, and pretty much burned everything north of Savannah to Columbia.

And everything from Columbia to the NC line, as well. His boys eased up when they got to the Old North State.
