Dead Confederates, A Civil War Era Blog


Posted in Memory by Andy Hall on March 22, 2012

Small stories that don’t warrant larger posts all their own.

Finally, I’d like to remind folks that I’ll be speaking on Civil War blockade runners in Texas at the Wortham MAX Theater at the Houston Museum of Natural Science on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. It should be fun.

    Oh, my dear Kentucky. Take 90 years to adopt the 13th amendment and keep the Confederate Pension Fund running on empty for decades. That’s progress for you.

    Thanks for sharing that – I had missed that story, but it’s a good link for some social media, I do think

      Look at the bright side — 90 years on the first, 50 on the second. That’s improvement, amiright?

      FWIW, news reports say the Confederate pension fund has been zeroed out for years and years — it exists on paper only.

    No doubt this is not a huge deal, but it’s just another interesting aspect of the lore of Kentucky “seceding after the Civil War”
