    had a get together with my fishing group big easter brunch and birthday party. Heard a great story about our ski area Mt Eyak. It is the original sun valley single chair. oldest chairlift in existence. In 1984 they wanted to change the electric motor at the top and repower to the bottom station. mike oleary https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...dova+avalanche
    and another local who had built their homes out of pocket took out mortgages to finance the repower.

    He grew a full beard on a family trip to Mexico and when he got back to the office they told him he had to shave the whole thing off. He kept the mustache and told the office to deal with it. No big deal today but I guess in the south in '69 you were a dirty hippy if you didn't look like George Wallace.

    Yeah, just because Lincoln was all about reconciliation after the war was over doesn't make Lee not a traitor. Just makes him a forgiven one.

    And he wasn't exactly forgiven if they seized his land, now was he?

    The fact that we can still argue about whether or not Lee was a traitor points to a division in America that has been present since the Revolution and has never been settled--the power and importance of States vs the Federal government. In joining the CSA Lee was asserting his loyalty to the State of Virginia, which he viewed as more important than loyalty to the USA. It wasn't just the South that felt that way--the Union army was organized by states. At Gettysburg the critical battle of Round Top was between the 15th Alabama and the 20th Maine. This kind of loyalty to one's state is a hard concept for most of us to understand today, especially since so many of us have lived in many states, but it lives on in issues of states' rights today, in areas like civil rights or limiting greenhouse gases, for example.

    Was there federal legislation prior to the Civil War that precluded recession from the Union? If not, I wouldn't consider Lee's action traitorous.

    I'm pretty sure that legislation can't directly prevent recessions.

    I almost got shot in the hand by my father-in-law with a nail gun. I guess technically I did get shot in the hand but it was only a graze on my knuckle.

    You prove my point--that we today don't understand the loyalty to states at the time--less than 75 years from a time when states considered themselves the equivalent of sovereign nations with their own currency and militias (22 states still have state defense forces distinct from National Guard units--the SDF's cannot be federalized the way the Guard can.) I'm not defending Lee, or secession, or slavery--just trying to understand the mindset of what most people consider an honorable man who made a decision to serve on the wrong side of history.

    Committing treason and murder in order to further the cause of slavery probably precludes you from being "honorable."

    it was a warning shot. What it was for, that's up to you to figure out.

    Keep that shit up, wise ass, and we'll dig up Sherman and March him on your ass again. At least Lee was a civilized warrior.

    Who's "we"?

    By my estimates I've spent nearly 2/3 of my life in the South yet I'll always be a carpetbagger Yankee to some here and yet it seems that its comments like yours that illustrate that concepts like reconciliation and acceptance are lost on many from all walks of life.

    And if you didn't already hear. The reanimated corpse of Gen. Sherman already burnt down one of the nations's busiest highways last month and just today put a launch ramp in the middle of another.

    I think we'll make it through this one as well.
