This letter is the first one of quite a few that this former Yankee POW sent my family. He mistakenly addressed it to my great grandfather, Private John Pelopidus Leach instead of my great uncle, 1st Lt. George Thomas Leach. (He was in charge of the sharpshooters on the retreat from to Appomattox) My great uncle had already died, so my great grandfather took up the correspondence with him. Both my relatives were detailed guarding prisoners for a while. This prisoner made a pipe for my great, great grandfather, but it has been lost.
Mr Townsend— My great-grandfather is David Hardy Sanders (1843-73), Company C, 53rd Regiment, NC State Troops.
He enlisted 16th May 1862, was captured 2nd April 1865, POW held at Point Lookout Md, Released and Oath of Allegiance 20th June 1865. He was from Johnston County and returned there after the war. I own a housewife that he carried. My father has a fiddle, but I think that is something he acquired post-war. Info from my cousin says that he had brown hair and grey eyes, and was 6’1/2” (pretty tall for those days).
Regards, Tracy Sanders Justus

In between ducking bombs from a culture that creates nothing, invents nothing, produces nothing, and aspires to nothing except genocide. That's their major industry -- annihilation of the Jewish people. But Israel is the problem.
Israel Develops Cancer Vaccine
Vaxil's groundbreaking therapeutic vaccine, developed in Israel, could keep about 90 percent of cancers from coming back.
As the world's population lives longer than ever, if we don't succumb to heart disease, strokes or accidents, it is more likely that cancer will get us one way or another. Cancer is tough to fight, as the body learns how to outsmart medical approaches that often kill normal cells while targeting the malignant ones. In a breakthrough development, an Israeli company has formulated a therapeutic cancer vaccine, now in clinical trials at Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem.
There are a 12 Million Jews in the world, and yet they have received 192 Nobel Prizes. The Muslims number 1.4 Billion ... or 117 times the number of Jews! Based upon this 117:1 Muslim-to-Jewish ratio, one might expect the Muslims to have 22,464 Nobel Laureates. They have nine, including the prize awarded to the pedophile godfather of modern terror, Yaser Arafat.
Unless the Swedes and Norwegians start awarding Nobel Prizes for plane hijackings, pizza shop bombings, civilian bus attacks, Jihad suicides/homicides, drive-by shootings, throat-slittings, embassy attacks and other such acts of barbarisms, the embarrassing low level of contribution to the welfare of civilization and mankind by the [Arab] Muslim world will continue. The Jewish People, meanwhile, will continue being the Lights Unto All Nations.
And the world is licking their boots and doing their bidding, turning the homeland and its inhabitants over as ransom, as if that would slake their bloodlust.
In the words of the American Enterprise Institute’s political scientist Charles Murray, “In the first half of the 20th century, despite pervasive and continuing social discrimination against Jews throughout the Western world, despite the retraction of legal rights, and despite the Holocaust, Jews won 14 percent of Nobel Prizes in literature, chemistry, physics, and medicine/physiology. In the second half of the 20th century, when Nobel Prizes began to be awarded to people from all over the world, that figure rose to 29 percent. So far, in the 21st century, it has been 32 percent.”1 Jews constitute about 0.2 percent of the world’s population.
Ayoob at Backwoods Home writes about an elderly couple who were brutally murdered in their home.
Just like this couple-- Jose Guerena was in his home when he was attacked and brutally murdered by violent killers.
The training, and organization, and decision to target and then to kill Jose Guerena was deliberate at each step in the process. The trigger pullers committed murder, as did those who sent them (prosecutor, judge, sheriff). Those who continue to enable them share the blame (prosecutors, judges, state and federal jurisdictions). And that includes those who excuse this and/or support their training, tactics, and deeds, like Mr Ayoob here. "Enforcers uber alles"?
When laws no longer apply, then there is no law, except what corruptocrats want to make up, an 'insiders mafia'. None of the 'perps' in this gang are charged with crimes since there is no law, only 'connections' and 'raw force' in this crime wave of organized theft and violence.
If there was a single 'oathkeeper' that had jurisdiction, A SINGLE ONE, then laws would apply, and the concept of law would be preserved. By continued enabling of such premeditated organized crimes, these perps and their enablers destroy what used to be our system of government. They make themselves repugnant to the concept of law. They are 'domestic enemies' Matt Bracken writes about.
Q: "Why we carry guns"?
A: Because Tories behaved just like this, abusing the people, and we made them leave.
“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that justifies it.”
- Frederic Bastiat
“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.”
- George Washington
“When law and morality contradict each other, the citizen has the cruel alternative of either losing his moral sense or losing his respect for the law.”
- Frederic Bastiat
“Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience.”
- John Locke
It's what we explained to the Tories and their mercenary army of enforcers.
That's "why we carry guns".

A Richmond museum is using cotton and mason jars to protect its most unique display from nearly a century of aging. The low-tech solution to a highly-prized possession.
The Virginia Historical Society was granted $375,000 to clean and conserve Charles Hoffbauer's Memorial Military murals depicting Confederate leaders and soldiers during the spring, summer, autumn, and winter "seasons" of the American Civil War. The paintings have begun to lose their texture, clarity and color and are in need of repairs for the next 100 years, according to Jennifer Guild, a spokesperson for the VHS.
It is a delicate and painstaking process, she said. The work could take up to three years and is being done by the Richmond Conservation Studio. The conservators are repainting and repairing the oil paintings with Q-tips and mason jars filled with cleaning solution. They are working on each painting in a grid and using Hoffbauer's original sketches to help.
Museum visitors can watch the progress as the murals are cleaned daily. "We want people to see the process and the progress," she said. They fill nearly a bucket a day with discarded Q-tips. The canvas murals also need to be reattached to the wall, as they have pulled away and begun to bubble out in certain spots.
Conserving Treasured Confederate 'Seasons' Murals
Born, May 4th 1830 (New York, USA), son of John Dewar (1802-80), who emigrated to Montreal, Canada, aged 16 years on the Brig ‘Curlew’ sailing from Greenock on 22 July 1818. John later relocated to New York and married (?).
William Ambrose Dewar moved to Charlotte, North Carolina between 1857 and 59 to work as a farmer. He volunteered for the 31st Infantry Regiment in September, 1861.
The 31st regiment was stationed at Roanoke Island until the unit was surrounded and captured in February, 1862. It is believed that William escaped with several others. Later, he was wounded, apparently whilst en route to Cedar Mountain in Culpepper County, Virginia. His injuries were as a result of an artillery accident (?) and serious enough to qualify him for discharge. William however, is listed as 'One of the immortal 600' so we assume he must have been recaptured at some point following his injury being sustained? His rank on discharge is recorded as Captain.
William Dewar returned to North Carolina where he married Elizabeth Louise Harrington (1833-1902) daughter of Col. Charles G. Harrington (1804-81) land owner and businessman. William retired to Buckhorn, Harnett, NC where he worked as a farmer until his death on 13 December 1902. He and Elizabeth are buried in Cokesbury United Methodist Church Cemetery, Harnett County, N.C.
Historical Note: The story of the Immortal 600 began on August 20, 1864, when a chosen group of 600 Confederate prisoners of war were transferred from the Fort Delaware Prison to Federally occupied Morris Island, South Carolina. The purpose of the move was to place these men into a cramped stockade in front of Union artillery positions, to literally use these prisoners as human shields. There they remained, in an open 1.5-acre pen, under the shelling of friendly Confederate artillery fire. Three men died on the starvation rations issued as retaliation for the conditions of the Union prisoners held at Andersonville, Georgia and Salisbury, North Carolina.
On October 21, after 45 days under fire, the weakened survivors were removed to Fort Pulaski and crowded into the fort’s cold, damp casemates. For 42 days, a "retaliation ration" of 10 ounces of moldy cornmeal and soured onion pickles was the only food issued to the prisoners. Thirteen men died at Fort Pulaski, and five later died at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The remaining prisoners were returned to Fort Delaware on March 12, 1865, where an additional twenty-five died. The Immortal 600 became famous throughout the South for their adherence to principles; and for refusing to take the Oath of Allegiance under extremely adverse circumstances.
One of the Immortal 600
As I came out of the supermarket that sunny day, pushing my cart of groceries towards my car. I saw an old man with the hood of his car up and a lady sitting inside the car, with the door open.
The old man was looking at the engine. I put my groceries away in my car and continued to watch the old gentleman from about 25 feet away.
I saw a young man in his early twenties with a grocery bag in his arm, walking towards the old man. The old gentleman saw him coming, too, and took a few steps towards him. I saw the old gentleman point to his open hood and say something.
The young man put his grocery bag into what looked like a brand new Cadillac Escalade and then turned back to the old man. I heard him yell at the old gentleman, saying, “You shouldn't even be allowed to drive a car at your age.” And then with a wave of his hand, he got in his car and peeled rubber out of the parking lot.
(CBN) Muslims are using the same strategy to target America that they used in Europe, one Mideast expert said.
Muslims have been outgrowing the populations of European countries to steadily become the dominant culture in their adopted countries, Dr. Mordechai Kedar, of Jerusalem's Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies, said.
Kedar, who recently co-authored a blockbuster study on radicalism in American mosques, warns that the U.S. is heading down the same path.
"If you want to see what America will look like, regarding Islamic expansion in this country, look at Europe, and this will be America in 10 to 12 years from now," Kedar said.
"Mosques that are built in America are creating enclaves of different culture, Sharia [Islamic law] culture, which in many cases promotes jihadism, extremism, and a lack of acceptance of others," he said.
That pattern eventually undermines liberty, Kedar said.
(AGI) Washington - Almost half of US students has suffered sexual harassment at school. An experience that affected their social life and studying performance. That's what a survey, carried out by the Association of American University Women on a sample of 1,965 high school students aged 11-18, reveals.
I ran across this song early this AM, and it set me to thinkin', though I am American Indian for the most part 5/8 last time I ciphered was more than half lol, I have always considered the Warren side of the family cowboys. Take in consideration all the years in OK, TX, CO, AZ, that my clan has migrated from the East westward, all the years working relentless days and nights in the oil patch, from 1897 still and to this day over 60 members of my family still work the oil fields. Amazing to me.
My ancestors broke horses with only a hemp rope, my grandpa Warren not only worked the oil fields when the derricks were made of wood (I believe you made mention of that on your blog) he also road the semi pro rodeo circuit as a bare back Bronk rider, and then when he thought he was too old for that he started as a rodeo clown, (known today as an American bullfighter, (a more glorious title I believe than clown.) My daddy missed 3 days of work in 33 years with the same oil company, was still working up till 3 weeks of his death. He could sit a horse as good as any man.Pam and I broke, trained, and boarded up to 31 head of horses for 4 years. Pam qualified for the Olympic Equestrian trials in Hunter Jumper classes. That same year I hauled her thoroughbred and my quarter horse over 50 K miles , costume showing, riding gaming classes like barrels, poles, buddy races, and the equivalent of drag racing quarter horses. Seems to me, there is a bit of a cowboy of modern sorts even in me.I think that’s why I liked the message and (music) in the song.
Nov 13 2011 - Ronnie Beukes of Pretoria pasted this angry but very fool-hardy bumper sticker on his blue bakkie - and drew so much attention that he got more than 8,000 calls from people wanting to know more about it.
"People stopped me asking to take pictures of the bakkie,' said Ronnie in an interview with the Sondag tabloid. He said the sticker 'spoke for itself'. "All we had to do is to sit back and wait. Just like Bin Laden, Saddam and Gaddafi destroyed their own people, it will also happen to Malema.'
Ronnie says Malema is a 'mickey mouse' and challenged him to come and sing the ANC-supported genocidal hatespeech-chant Shoot the Boer for him – alone: "Why doesn't he come and sing that song just for me? Without his supporters...? asked Ronnie. He decided to remove the sticker after two days because his workers riding along with him, were getting death-threats.One unidentified worker confirmed this: "Black people stopped us and threatened to burn the bakkie if we didn't remove that sticker,' said the man.
“Two of the most gallant of Burke County’s fifteen hundred Confederate soldiers were Joe Allman and his younger brother Noah, who were affectionately known by the community as Uncle Joe and Uncle Noah. They served in one of North Carolina’s most heroic combat units, the famous Sixth North Carolina Regiment. Uncle Noah was a teetotalist, but Uncle Joe sometimes succumbed to the temptation to imbibe a little too freely.========
Uncle Joe’s devotion to the Confederacy intensified as the years passed. He attended all reunions of Confederate veterans, arrayed with the badges and ribbons denoting his attendance at previous reunions.
Shortly after our wedding trip, my wife and I met Uncle Joe on a Morganton sidewalk. He was enroute to the forthcoming reunion in Memphis, bedecked with all his badges and ribbons. Uncle Joe extracted a bottle of booze from his hip pocket and invited my wife and I to drink with him.
At that time North Carolina was bedeviled by the hysteria of prohibition, and the courts rarely extended any mercy to anyone who was apprehended in the possession of intoxicating beverages. In declining his invitation, I gave Uncle Joe this warning:
“Uncle Joe, please put that bottle back in your pocket. If the police catch you with it, they will take you to jail, and you’ll miss the reunion.”
“Don’t you worry about that,” Uncle Joe said. “Before the police could even lock the jailhouse door, Sue Tate and the Daughters of the Confederacy would set me free and send me to Memphis.” Knowing cousin Sue as I did, I am convinced that Uncle Joe was right.
After the Good Lord called Uncle Joe hence, a former resident visited Morganton, met Uncle Noah, and asked him about Uncle Joe. “Brother Joe died last year,” Uncle Noah informed him. “If he hadn’t drunk so much mean booze, he might have lived to a ripe old age.”
How old was Uncle Joe when he died?” the former resident inquired.
Uncle Noah replied, “About ninety.”

Around the turn of the century Pitt County was very poor while Edgecombe was prosperous with Tarboro having a much larger population than Rocky Mount. The population part has now been reversed. As such, the women in Edgecombe only had to attend to household endeavors while the men were farmers. My Cousin Bill Bass tells a story of his grandfather being driven from Tarboro to Rocky Mount in his horse and buggy accompanied by Bob, a black servant. At any rate, after they had pranced along for awhile Bob said to Mr. Bass, "we're in Pitt County now" to which Mr. Bass replied "How do you know that, Bob?"which was answered with "there's a woman plowing over there!
“I think now we wanna talk about how we gonna get ourselves arrested,” one leader says to a few laughs.
Another suggests ways to maximize media coverage:
“The news media up here is going to be able to capture more of whatever winds up happening, whatever that is, if we’re up higher in the amphitheater.”
[US Congressman] Robert L. Daughton [of Allegheny County, known as “Farmer Bob”] possessed an understanding of economics of far more value than the theoretical knowledge of the professional economists who undertake to advise federal officials. Acting at the suggestion of his professional economists, who believed high income taxes to be an antidote for inflation, the secretary of the Treasury sent a proposed revenue bill making drastic increases in federal income taxes to Farmer Bob, with the request that he introduce it in the House with his blessing as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.========
When he heard nothing from Congressman Doughton concerning the bill, the secretary called him by telephone and asked him when he was going to introduce the bill. “I ain’t never going to introduce that fool bill,” Farmer Bob responded. Don’t your economist have enough sense to know that you can shear a sheep every fall, but you can’t skin him but once?”I share Farmer Bob’s misgiving in respect to high taxes as an antidote to inflation, I suspect they are rather a stimulant for that economic ailment. I am tempted to believe, therefore, that the United States government might be operated with more wisdom if it were more economical in taking advice from professional economists.”
