    <p>The bullet probably hit the Union soldier as he was fleeing. It may have struck his cartridge box first, which sent it tumbling through the muscle of his right buttock, broke his right leg and buried itself sideways in his thigh bone just below the hip.</p>
  • NBC Issues Correction Two Days After Falsely Claiming Trump Called Gen. Robert E. Lee ‘Incredible’

    NBC Issues Correction Two Days After Falsely Claiming Trump Called Gen. Robert E. Lee ‘Incredible’ On Friday, NBC News reported, and tweeted, that President Donald Trump praised Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee as “incredible”. But on Sunday, NBC had to correct that tweet since, as it turns out, Trump was actually praising Union General (and future U.S. President) Ulysses S. Grant in the clip. “An earlier tweet misidentified the general President Trump described as ‘incredible’ at a rally in Ohio,” they tweeted. “It was Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, not Gen. Robert E. Lee.” That’s a pretty big difference. That was...

    NBC News has totally and purposely changed the point and meaning of my story about General Robert E Lee and General Ulysses Grant. Was actually a shoutout to warrior Grant and the great state in which he was born. As usual, dishonest reporting. Even mainstream media embarrassed!

    “So Robert E. Lee was a great general,” Trump told the audience. “And Abraham Lincoln developed a phobia.” “He couldn’t beat Robert E. Lee,” he explained. “He was going crazy.” “I don’t know if you know this story,” he continued. “But Robert E. Lee was winning battle after battle after battle.” “And one day it was looking really bad and Lincoln just said you hardly knew his name,” he said, “and they said don’t take him he’s got a drinking people.” “And Lincoln said I don’t care what problem he has, you guys aren’t winning,” Trump continued. “And his name...

    President Trump praised Confederate Geader Robert E. Lee as "a great general" on Friday during a campaign rally in Lebanon, Ohio. "So Robert E. Lee was a great general. And Abraham Lincoln developed a phobia. He couldn’t beat Robert E. Lee," Trump said before launching into a monologue about Lee, Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant. "He was going crazy. I don’t know if you know this story. But Robert E. Lee was winning battle after battle after battle. And Abraham Lincoln came home, he said, 'I can’t beat Robert E. Lee,'" Trump said. "And he had all of his generals,...
  • Civil War gold treasure hunters, lawyer say FBI acting ‘suspicious’

    A pair of Pennsylvania treasure hunters and their lawyer are accusing the FBI of playing games and acting suspiciously about a dig at a rural site believed to contain a massive stash of Civil War-era gold -- which may be worth up to $250 million. The accusations from Dennis and Kem Parada, and their attorney, Bill Cluck, came months after the bureau said it dug a hole in Dents Run and found nothing. The father-and-son duo felt convinced that area of state-owned wilderness northeast of Pittsburgh holds a hidden stash of gold and the pair claim the FBI went back...

    I see a Second Civil War breaking out in America. Now, I realize we’ve heard this before. And when I first uncovered this research, I almost dismissed it as sensationalist clickbait. But I’m glad I didn’t. This Civil War won’t be a shooting war. We’re not going to have a war between the North and the South on the battlefields of Fort Sumter or Gettysburg. It’ll be an economic Civil War… One in which states could exert their financial independence. And for the first time, we have the technology to make this possible. Before I get to the technology, I...

    PJ Media via DRUDGE ^ | 28 SEP 18 | By Debra Heine
    Communist agitators took to Twitter this week to brainstorm strategies for a violent armed insurrection against their perceived enemies. “Dr. Bones," the co-host of the far-left podcast The Guillotine, started the conversation going with his 5,000-plus Twitter followers. Bones (@Ole_Bonsey on Twitter) asked: “Hey quick little question for military minded lefties: should leftists train/organize in a 'insurgent' focus where they blend into a civilian population for potential attacks or a more 'militia' structure focused on holding/maintaining turf?” Bones went on to suggest that fellow travelers organize "hidden cells" and focus on ambushes and assassinations to bleed "right-leaning forces" dry. He...

    An uneasiness has overtaken the body politic. There is a sense that a terrible clash is about to occur. The establishment’s contempt for Donald Trump, and their machinations to remove him, are validated by the president’s intemperate counterattacks and the glee that his supporters take in his barbs. These two groups do not simply disagree; they consider each other to be illegitimate and unconstitutional outlaws. It is true that Trump’s behavior is not befitting his office and that a certain decorum and dignity in the White House is not only desirable but essential. Democracy is no different from any other...

    Like many Americans, I’m watching some of the Kavanaugh (Supreme Court) hearings with a sense of sadness. Because it’s apparent that there is no difference between the elected Senate Democrats and the crazies they allowed into the Senate chambers to disrupt the proceedings, and I know where this is leading. Certain Democrat “leaders” like Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Sen. Corey Booker of New Jersey are clearly acting out in an effort to show their “leadership” skills to their left-wing base. Both want to be President. This shows you what they think “leadership” in today’s Democrat Party means–obstruction of...

    At least four people have been killed and seven others wounded in clashes that broke out between rival armed groups in Libya's capital, Tripoli, as they attempt to take control of the city. The health ministry declared a state of emergency on Monday, according to local media, after the Sunday evening clashes continued to escalate. The fighting erupted between local militias and al-Kani tribal fighters from Tarhouna, southeast of Tripoli, who are sending reinforcements to the country's north. Both sides technically operate under Libya's UN-recognised Government of National Accord (GNA).

    A board member at the University of North Carolina is calling for a Confederate statue to be promptly reinstalled on the Chapel Hill campus after it was toppled by protesters earlier this month. Citing state law on monuments and memorials, UNC Board of Governors member Thom Goolsby said in a YouTube video that the well-known “Silent Sam” monument will be placed back on campus within 90 days.“A statue was torn down by a violent mob and the police stood by and did nothing as that happened,” Goolsby said of the Aug. 20 incident. He said that the university’s board is...
