    As an aside, are you familiar with Abner Doubleday at Sumter ? The guy who invented baseball (he didn't, but its a good story), served with distinction throughout the Civil War, and patented the cable cars in San Fran ? He was a great second-in-command to your distant relative.

    it was a big sham. The rebel general was a hero for taking the fort without any real loss of life, Major Anderson was a hero for "forcing terms" that allowed him to march out with the colors intact (and in the first year of the war, the Union needed heroes!!)
    I think that it was a cannon that exploded.

    Only remotely

    I will tell you an interesting (at least to me) story. My late Uncle married my father's sister who died fairly young (50-from smoking related cancer). Well one day i was visiting my uncle who lived in a really nice penthouse suite cincinnati when he wasn't traveling around the world. He had a portrait of his late wife when she made her "debut". Next to her portrait was a portrait of the Major when he was commissioned. In other words, my aunt Circa 1946 or so and Major Anderson a century earlier. They looked like Brother and Sister

    Just one more phoney baloney chump politician. You can stick a fork in her now.
    I'm not reading the entire thread because if this is any reason for your disapproval of Warren you're sucking eggs. I mean, really. That's it? She's not as Cherokee as she said she is? Give me a ****ing break! LOL! You are stretching big time to make some kind of point and you failed to the point of ridicule. She lied about her percentage of Cherokee ancestry! How could anyone vote for her?

    Anderson was a sharp cookie. Lincoln hung him out to dry down there. And his command did an excellent job. I do not think anyone could have done better.
