All of You DUers Alive During the Civil War

Remind me, were we also at war with North Korea, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria at the same time?

When is the Great Fixer going to fix something?

1. I fought under General Ulysses Simpson Grant

He was a great man. A great, great man!

Don't listen to Donny Trump as he distorts history. We tried to work things out. It just wasn't quite that simple.

3. I know nothing about time travel

You just have to live a long, long time. Judging by your avatar, you've pedaled through quite a few years as well.

6. I was there

An I remember Andrew Jackson was on FoxNews every night trying to prevent the war. He wa trying to, you know, work it out. According to Ole' Andy, all the country had to do was accept slavery as a white man's right. Bill O'Reily agreed with him, but the country went a different way. SAD

7. Hi Everyone (from the great beyond)

My name is Pvt. Robert Roscoe. I served twice in the Civil War-once in the Indiana Calvary-but I got typhoid and got discharged because I couldn't stay out in the elements. Second enlistment I went into the infantry and lost my left arm at the Battle of Shiloh. I tell you we were THIS CLOSE to working it out!!!!

8. I advised General Sherman not to discard his cigarette in the dry brush of Northern Georgia

But the hot-head he was would not listen to me, and it burned nearly the entire city of Atlanta to the ground. He never made that mistake again.

10. Oh, the end of the feudal era?

The Edo period. The fall of the shogunate and return of the emperor.

15. I was going back and forth between Turkey and the Caucasus

However, I spent most of my time hanging around Mt. Argaeus in Cappadoccia trying to keep the Pasha's men off of my property.

17. Honestly I wasn't paying that much attention.

We were still using America Online dial up at the time. And when I wasn't getting busy signals waiting for a connection, I was busy trolling the chat rooms for a hook up.

19. I missed that war,

bone spurs...or maybe it was a boil on my ass? Did my patriotic duty though, supplied the troops with "fancy ladies", rotgut and clap cures.
