    Considering the tactics that were used, it amazes me that anyone lived through that war.

    It also amazes me as to how much courage these men had. Knowing the casualties they faced. I don't think I could have found enough courage to join a Pickett's charge or a similar battle.

    I think men find courage when they are defending their home and their freedom, which is how I think the majority of the soldiers on both sides saw the war. Politicians and special interest groups put their own spin on things, but I think most of the troops believed they were fighting for their country as they viewed it.

    I've been watching DVD's of one of my favorite shows, Barney Miller. I loved James Gregory's character Inspector Frank Luger. Always sporting his Fedora. And Abe Vigoda as Fish with his as well.

    Great show. It is on one of the over-the-air channels. We watch it nearly every night.

    When I was in Jr College in the late 70's, I was studying Law Enforcement. My Advisor was a former Omaha Police Officer. He said this was the most realistic "Cop Show" on TV at the time. I had to take his word for it as I got side tracked and never was employed in LE. But I thought that was interesting.

    I think the realistic aspect that LEOs talk about is that they were mostly shown sitting around doing paperwork, interviewing witnesses, taking complaints, etc.

    Action usually took place off-screen and the show would deal with the aftermath.

    Williamson-Dickie apparel manufacturing in Fort Worth, TX, now knows simply as Dickies. Very suave gentlemen in the twenties! Nice hats, too. Too bad Dickies didn't go into the hat business.

  11. My GG grandfather was the 2nd born of 11 kids (7 boys, 4 girls). He & his older brother joined up when he was just 18. The other boys were too young. He survived, his older brother was gut shot & captured, taken to the Gratiot Street Prison in St. Louis where he died on the 2nd day while awaiting transfer to the Federal Prison in Alton, IL.

    That is exactly what my Advisor talked about. He talked of the boring drudgery of paperwork as taking up a good part of his day.

    My wife and one of my daughters were watching Singin’ in the Rain today when I came home. I’ve always liked Gene Kelly and indulged a bit too. Great style:

    Kelly liked an exaggerated tilt for his hats. His hat looks to be sitting on one ear and inches above the other. Very jaunty.

    My great grandfather fought in that battle, for the 22nd Alabama infantry.

  17. John Fletcher Fairchild (1851 - 1899)

    Deputy Sheriff of Flagstaff AZ, died in the Territorial Insane Asylum from the pain of a broken nose yrs earlier which likely caused brain damage. His descendants claim it was Wyatt Earp who broke Fairchild's nose in a fight, but it can't be proven.

    I've wondered if there was a story behind that guy. I have seen that pic every time I do a search for cowboy pictures!
