QuoteOAK BLUFFS -- The Union soldier looks toward the nearby ferry terminal, hands resting on the barrel of his rifle, his trim frame draped in a military coat and cape. A proud Martha's Vineyarder defending his country at a time of desperate peril.
It's a 19th-century monument like thousands of others in town squares and city parks throughout the North. Except for this: Its iron-cast base contains a 1925 plaque that honors the Confederate enemy, a surprising tribute for a summer getaway long known for its vibrant black community.

Civil War statue plaque

"The chasm is closed," the plaque reads. "In memory of the restored Union, this tablet is dedicated by Union veterans of the Civil War and patriotic citizens of Martha's Vineyard in honor of the Confederate soldiers."

Lee sold

Dallas has sold the Robert E. Lee statue for $1.4 million. The 1935 bronze sculpture, which was taken down by the city was sold in an online auction that saw the most interesting action in the final hours of the sale June 6.
For days, the high bid hovered around $550,000 until the last half hour, when aliases MustangJerry and LawDude competed until LawDude won for $1,435,000.
The sculpture is valued at $950,000. The City Council wanted at least $450,000 to cover the cost of removal.

Civil War plant guide reveals 3 plants with antibiotic properties

QuoteDuring part of the war, Confederate surgeons did not have reliable access to medicines because the Union Navy prevented the Confederacy from trading.

As infection rates rose among the wounded, the Confederate Surgeon General commissioned a guide to plant remedies.
Francis Porcher, a botanist and surgeon, compiled a book called Resources of the Southern Fields and Forests. It lists medicinal plants of the southern states, including plant remedies that Native Americans and slaves used.

QuoteThe researchers focused on three plant species that Porcher cited that grow on the Emory campus: the white oak, the tulip poplar, and a shrub called the devil's walking stick.
They gathered samples from campus specimens and tested extracts on multidrug-resistant bacteria.

Thanks!  Interesting!

"Although politically controlling slavocrats engineered the war, most soldiers enlisted because of history and propaganda relating to an invasion."

But those same soldiers allegedly

"distrusted all authority save that of conspicuous merit and natural justice."

I wonder why they fell for the propaganda?
