On Sunday I put up a post on Louis Napoleon Nelson, which included a link to a complete and unedited copy of his Tennessee Confederate pension application. On Tuesday, Corey Meyer linked to it, which prompted this response from Josephine Lindsay Bass, aka “JosephineSouthern”:


You all done it again! Such courage in the face of die hard Confederates deserves something. Just What, well, nothing comes to mind.
Bless Your Heart, I do think you are lucky that no one has shot you in the face or gone to your kids school and shot up the place. I wonder when the haters and dividers get their due in this country. Ah well there is always next year.


This comes four days after a school shooting in Connecticut left twenty 6- and 7-year-olds dead, all from multiple gunshot wounds.
