    Nacogdoches has a nicely restored one in town, and a deteriorating one on the south side I wish someone would buy from whoever owns it and get it back up to style. I just love that architecture.

    I have fond recollections of watching Walt Disney’s “The Great Locomotive Chase” back in the 1950s on our little black and white TV. One of the great moments was when Fess Parker, as the incognito raider James J. Andrews, is confronted on the train by a magnificently menacing Confederate soldier. The Reb sees Andrews’s pistol, and snarls “Yankee Army issue! Whar’d you git it?” Of course Andrews/Parker deftly allays all suspicions. Many wonderfully hair-raising scenes ensue.

      Glad to see you ’round these parts, Mike.

        Thanks, Andy. By the way, I noted today that a Dead Confederates blog post of June 21, 2011 (“‘The War of Northern Aggression’ as Modern Segregationist Revisionism”) is cited in note 24 of Prof. Gaines M. Foster’s article “What’s Not in a Name: The Naming of the American Civil War” in The Journal of the Civil War Era, September 2018. Pretty cool!
