Will someone explain to me why Tennessee Ernie Ford recorded a version of “Marching Through Georgia”? Was it because he was born in East Tennessee, a haven of Unionists?
Bet you didn’t know that earlier this month folks celebrated the 200th anniversary of the birth of Horace Greeley.
Here is Abraham Lincoln meeting Frederick Douglass. In truth, the remainder of the film is more interesting than one might first think.
And, for those of you who’ve never heard Thomas DiLorenzo, here’s an interview he did on C-SPAN. Even more curious are some of the statements of Judge Andrew Napolitano, who thinks that the Emancipation Proclamation established slavery in the border states (and that’s for starters).
Enjoy (and comment if you feel so moved).
