(h/t to Bernadette Loeffel-Atkins, author and Gettysburg bookstore owner who hails from Seaford, New York).
I’m assuming you meant to show us the “extreme-cougar-wives” video?
Yup. There are so many ways to remember the Civil War.
Ummm, a little warning next time.
Oops, I did it again.
You know I cannot un-see that right?
It is sort of like the Oldest Confederate Widow Tells All in reverse…..ew…Creepy
Steam has been sighted, rising from Ellsworth’s grave.
Those aren’t Zouaves; those are farbs…Super farbs.
Apparently this is only the surface of what proved to be a most enGROSSing episode.
I don’t doubt that for a second! I couldn’t force myself to watch it any further than the corset being laced up…
I think it was Bill Parcells who once said, “I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.”
Hey, I’m a mature gal who has been following your and similar blogs for years. How come no one told me about this little benefit of CW scholarship??!
It’s a well-hidden secret.
….oh dear gawd…are these flaggers too??? :-O

For the first time I have a real sense for the hardships experienced by the ordinary soldier in that war. The NPS should take this on as a living history project. After making the audience sign a release, of course.
Yeah, maybe they can do a “living history” based around the government–sponsored legalized prostitution in Nashville during the war. This was prompted by the realization that the Confederate floozy was probably causing more Union casualties in that city’s “red light” district than the CS army was in front of Corinth.
Yet another addition to the Confederacy’s fearsome array of weaponry.
I cannot figure how this awful and hideous link is connected to Bernadette’s book. I saw the first clip, which I thought would never end and threw up. I have just ordered the book. Thanks for posting it.
Bernandette brought this clip to my attention (and yours) on Facebook. She’s one of two Civil War historians who grew up in Seaford in the 1960s. BTW, that’s the South Shore.
