Hi Peanut!I
am going to tell you a little bit about my home town. If I can just get mom past the heartache and sadness for a bit.

My hometown Bristol...

Bristol exists today because of the railroad. It would be a tiny town if not for the fact that it was once a busy railroad hub for Southern and Norfolk and Western. The trains took young away to war and brought them home. Sometimes to be buried with honors. Passengers were taken to cities all over. When the steam engines bowed to the diesel, the round house and repair shops closed and were eventually torn down.
We had Buntings Drugstore that was reknown for it's hot dogs! Mom says they were the absolute best as far as hot dogs go. The drugstore was over a 100 years and Mom can still hear in her memory the creaky wooden floors and see the glass tables that had displays between the two layers. The drugstore is gone but alive in the memories of adults and kids that were privledged to eat those heavenly hot dogs.
Bristol has the state line running down the middle of the main road that is known as State Street. When a band marches down State Street one person is always divided as half in Tennessee and their other half in Virginia! Mom was divided a couple of times. The band members always wanted the middle position of the row. Silly huh?
Bristol is legally recognized as the birth place of my favorite music, COUNTRY! Yep! we are the birthplace of country music. The late Jimmy Rogers made a couple of recordings here and the Carter family recorded here too. They still have shows every summer at the Carter Fold is close to here. The town just opened the Country Music Museum about a month ago.
Our claim to fame though, is the Bristol Motor Speedway. Home for two NASCAR races a year, March and August. (Yes, mom has been to some races) Right now it is home to the Festival of Lights to raise money for Children's Charities. Other races are held sometimes between the NASCAR dates.
I could go on but it would take a lot more room.

Love and loud purrs

Hi Peanut!I
Grrrreat to see you back!

thought that I would take you to visit a state park tonight that mom (a railroad buff) loves visiting and taking pictures there. It is known as the Natural Tunnel and is located in Duffield, VA.

The Natural Tunnel

The Natural Tunnel is called the Eighth Wonder of the World by William Jennings Brian, has been attracting sightseers for over a hundred plus years!

Daniel Boone was probably the first white man to see the tunnel in that it laid along the original route that he took westward.

The Natural Tunnel was first surveyed in 1852 as a proposed route for the VA & KY railroad but the Civil War put those plans on the back burner and they were all but forgotten. During the Civil War, they mined saltpeter out of the tunnel and nearby and the holes where the saltpeter was dug are still visible in the tunnel today. Mom has seen them! In 1890, the South Atlantic & Ohio opened the line from Bristol (my hometown)to Big Stone Gap(yes there is a town with that name) and later to Appalachia, VA. The route was taken over by another Southern Railroad and when it merged with Norfolk & Western and became Norfolk Southern in 1982. They let CSX railroad have track rights to haul their coal. Both railroads just use this route to haul coal now.

When you visit the park and ride the chairlift down, you get lucky and see a CSX or a Norfolk Southern train hauling coal and feel the energy and hear the growl of the mighty locomotives pulling the many tons of coal or taking an empty to a mine or mines. It is amazing that this tunnel nature made many many thousands of years ago is a perfect fit for today's mighty diesel locomotives.

Love and purrs Queen Snuggles

I have pictures on my page of the tunnel.

Hi Peanut!I
This is my final campaign blog. I hope that you enjoy it. Though sad, it is another bittersweet love story.

Day 29

The Jennie Wade Story

Mary Virginia Wade was a 20 year old resident of Gettysburg, Pa, engaged to Corp. Johnston H. Skelly of the 87th Pennsylvania She was a seamtress with her mother working from their home. To help make ends meet they also took care of a six year old boarder, Isaac. For safety, Jeannie and the family and Isaac, moved to her sister's house which stood less than 50 yards from Cementary Hill. There was no heavy fighting in the area but a Union Picket line did run behind the little brick house. There was intermittent skirmishing between it and the Confederates. Protected by thick brick walls the lived for three days in the midst of the greatest battle in this hemisphere. Jennie spent July 1 and 2 giving the soldiers bread and filling their canteens with fresh water. On July 2 she noticed that the bread supply was low and more bread would be needed for the next day. She and her mother left the yeast to rise until the morning. About 7am on July 3, Confederates sharp shooters began firing at the North windows of the house The two women began baking biscuits and around 8:30am Jennie stood in the kitchen, a Confederate musket ball smashed through the door, pierced a hole into the kitchen striking Jennie in the back beneath her left shoulder blade, ebedding itself into her corset, killing her instantly. Union soldiers carried her to the basement after hearing the cries of her mother and sister. She was buried in Evergreen Cementary in a coffin some Confederates soldiers had mad for an officer. The next day, her mother baked 15 loaves of bread from the dough Jeannie kneaded.
Jennie Wade was the only civilian casuality of Gettysburg. Unknown to Jennie, her fiancé, Corp. Skelly had been wounded and taken prisoner on May 13. He was taken to Richmond and died of his wounds on July 12, 1863. News of his death came several days after Confederates had withdrawn from Gettysburg.

I sincerely want to thank you for all of your support and friendship. I look forward to being your queen through December and have some things planned already!

Hi Peanut!I
I am sorry that I don't have a Civil War blog for today as it seemed in appropriate on a day of giving thanks.

As I sit and look at this empty computer screen with no civil war blog prepared because of the Thanksgiving holiday. I think about all the soldiers in Afghanistan without their families and I give thanks for each and everyone of them for making the sacrifice and pray they all come home. Because of them, I can celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and the fourth of July.

I think about all the poor cats and kittens, dogs and puppies with out a human to love them and give them care and warmth they so desire. The love and food we receive every day is taken for granted by those of us who have always had loving humans who see that we have shelter, love and warmth. I am thankful for all that I have this Day.

I think of humans without places to call home. No place to go for food and wonder if any one loves them or care if they are cold and living on the streets.

I am saddened thinking about this on a day of Thanksgiving. But, I am sure, all my brothers and sisters, are as thankful as I for our humans who love us, feed us and spoil us.

I will do my final civil war blog tomorrow and the coronation will be on Saturday the 30th at 7pm EST.

I thank you for your votes, friendship and support.

Hi Peanut!I
Gosh! two more days until the coronation! A dream of mine is coming true. But I still wonder where all that time went so quickly this month!

Day 27

Grierson's Raid (condensed)

On April 17, 1863, Colonel B.H. Grierson led three cavalry regiments from La Grange, TN, on a history making march through Mississippi to Union lines in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
On April 21, Grierson detached the 2nd Iowa Cavalry under Colonel Hatch , to destroy the railroad bridge between Columbus and Macon and then to return to La Grange Hatch had a sharp fight with Confederate troops, defeating them without the lost of a single man. Hatch's success was due to the fact his regiment was armed with Colt's revolving rifles. Hatch retreated along the railroad destroying it at Okolona and Tupelo. He arrived back at La Grange with the lost of 10 men. The main object was to decoy Confederates to the East giving Grierson ample time to get under way.
Mean while, Grierson continued his raid with less than 1000 horsemen, breaking the Southern Mississippi and New Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern reailroad. Near Newton, they burned several bridges, destroyed locomotives, with cars loaded with commissary stores, guns and ammo. At Hazelhurst, cars and ammo and at Brookhaven the railroad depot and cars.
Having cavalry available to Grierson, Confederates were kept in a state of excitement alarm. Rumors exaggerated Grierson's numbers and where he could be. Several brigades of Confederate artillery were dispatched but Grierson avoided them all.
In 16 days, Grierson marched 600 miles-nearly 38 miles a day, destroying railroads, telegraph, and other property. Most important, he distracted the Confederates attention from Grant's operations against Vicksburg. Grierson lost 36 men while collecting a thousand horses and mules. The Grierson raid was probably the most successful operation of its kind during the civil war.

I want to thank everyone for all of your support, votes and friendship.

Hi Peanut!I
Tonight I am going to do a mini intro of General Benjamin Grierson. What an unlikely man to be an officer of cavalry and to lead the raid he did.

Day 26

Colonel Benjamin H. Grierson must have been the Union Army's most improbable cavalry leader. He had hated horses since the age of eight, when he was kicked by a pony and badly hurt. he had objected vigorously when he was assigned to the 6th Illinois Cavalry in 1861. He had protested to None other than General Halleck himself, who brushed him off with the comment that he looked "active and wiry enough" to become a cavalryman.

What is more, Grierson, was something of a novice in military matters; in April 1863 he had only 18 months of service behind him. He was really a musician-a composer, arranger, pianist, flutist, drummer and guitarist who had been making an uncertain living as a music teacher when the war started. On patrols he entertained himself and those of his men within earshot by strumming away on a jews-harp as they rode along.

Grierson was born on July 8, 1826 and was the youngest of 5 children. He married in 1854 and had 7 children and only 4 survived to adulthood. He died on August 31, 1911, at age 85.

Tomorrow we will do the raid that Grierson is famous for. Mom enjoys reading about this raid and says it was really hard on the horses and riders but was a success.

Thank you for the continued support, votes and most importantly friendship.

Hi Peanut!I
I can't believe that there are five more days of catpaigning after today. Where has the time gone? Thank you to each and everyone of you for the votes, support and best of all friendship.

Day 24

I would like to introduce you to General George H. Thomas's horse "Billy"

Know as the "Rock of Chickamauga" General George H. Thomas possessed two intelligent war horses, both powerful and large enough to carry the General's two hundred pounds. Both horses were bays with Billy being the darker of the two. Both horses stood about 16 hands and very stout. (Billy was named for General Thomas's friend, General William T. Sherman) Billy was like his owner, sedate in all his movements and wasn't easily disturbed by battle.

Billy bore Thomas through the campaigns in middle Tennessee and Northern Georgia. He was on the fields of Chickamauga and Chattanooga and marched to Atlanta. From Atlanta he moved to Nashville, where his master engineered the crushing defeat to the Confederate arms in the winter of 1864, the last battle in which Billy and Thomas participated.

I think it is appropriate to end the war horses with the oldest war horse.

Old Jim, according to records was the last surviving civil war horse. He lived until at least 1894. His rider, Lt. McMahon was killed in action but Old Jim went back to Aiken, SC. He entertained crowds at parades of Civil War veterans until his death.

I will do a quick look at General Benjamin Grierson tomorrow.

Hi Peanut!I
I have one more day of horse stories and then we will do a short bio on General Benjamin Grierson before I do his raid into the deep South distracting the Southern forces from General Grant's moves in Vicksburg. I will combine three short stories of the remaining horses we can find info on.

Day 23

General JEB Stuart's horse...

Highfly was the battle horse that carried General JEB Stuart through many campaigns and had become his favored companion. The horse's intelligence and faithfulness had Stuart through many dangers. In the summer of 1862, at Verdiersville, on the plank road between Fredricksburg and Orange VA,, Sturart was stretched out on a bench on the tavern's porch awaiting for General Fitzhugh Lee (General R.E. Lee's nephew) to confer on the next movement of cavalry. Highfly was unbridled and grazing in the yard near the road. The clatter of horses woke the Confederate General who walked to the roadway, leaving behind his hat, in which was a black ostrich feather plume, the pride of Stuart's heart. Suddenly horsemen rode around the bend of the road and Stuart was within gunshot of Union Cavalry. Being nonplussed he had ezpected to see Lee. He mounted his faithful, fast bay horse, leaving the chagrined Union Cavalry behind but the foe carried away the treasured hat with the black ostrich plum. General Stuart would later in the war, be killed in the battle of Yellow Tavern.

I want to thank each and everyone of you for the continued support of my campaign and your friendship means the world to me.

Hi Peanut!I
want to introduce you to Lexington and Sam, two of General Sherman's horses.

I also want to thank you for the votes, friendship and support of my campaign.

Day 2
General Sherman's best horse was killed at the battle of Shilo, leading the right wing of the Union forces against General A.S. Johnson's Confederate forces. Two other horses were killed while being held by an orderly. Of the many horses that carried Sherman through the years of the war, two had a particular place in the General's affections, Lexington and Sam. Lexington was a Kentucky thoroughbred (He was also the sire of General Grant's Cincinnati) and his fine action attracted the admiration of all who saw him. When Union troops finally entered and occupied Atlanta, in 1864, Sherman was astride Lexington for the grand review of the troops in Washington. He died in 1875 at a Kentucky horse farm at the age of 25 and he is buried there.

Sam was a large half thoroughbred bay in color, and was 16 1/2 hands tall. He had speed, strength and endurance. Sam made one to the longest and most difficult marches ever recorded in history, from Vicksburg to Washington, through the cities of Atlanta, Savannah, Colombia, and Richmond. With his rapid gait, he could march 5 miles and hour at a walk. Under fire he was calm and steady as his brave master. He was wounded several times, wile mounted, the fault was usually due to Sherman's disregard of the anxiety to seek cover. In 1865, Sherman retired Sam to a well earned rest on an Illinois farm were her received every mark of affection. The brave war horse died of extreme old age in 1884.

Mom tried to find more info about Lexington and couldn't except about his speed. Tomorrow I will see if I can find another horse story for you and then on Sunday we will do Grierson's Raid. John Wayne's Horse Soldiers is very loosely based on this ride.

Day 21

General McClellan's horses...

While General McClellan was in charge of the Union Army in 1862, he had a number of war horses. His favorite horse was one named "Daniel Webster". He was called "that devil Dan" by the staff officers who had difficulty in keeping pace with Dan. During the battle of Antietam, the great horse carried the General safely through the day.

Daniel Webster was a dark bay horse, about 17 hands high, a purebred with good action and never showed any signs of fatigue no matter how hard the test was. He was extremely intelligent with more than ordinary horse sense. He had a fast walk which was important for a commander's horse but disagreeable for the staff officer's horses whose horses had to be kept at a slow trot to keep up with Dan! When McClellan retired to private life, Dan became the family horse at Orange, NJ where he died at age 23. McClellan said "No soldier ever had a better horse than I had in Daniel Webster."

McClellan also had another horse named "Burns", a fiery black, named after an army friend who had given him the horse. His only failing was at dinner time he would bolt for his oats regardless. Running at dinner time became such an obsession with Burns, that McClellan was always careful not to be mounted on him at that hour of day!

Tomorrow I will talk about Gen. W.T. Sherman's horses. Hope that you enjoyed meeting Dan and Burns.

Hi Peanut!
am sorry that I couldn't find very much on Stuart's horse and decided to focus on General George G Meade's horse, Baldy, since there was a whole lot more info on him.

I want to introduce you to Baldy!

Day 20

At the first Bull Run in 1861, there was a bright bay horse, with a white face and feet, whose rider had been seriously wounded. The horse was turned in to the quartermaster and to recover from his own wounds. In September of 61, General Meade bought the horse, naming him Baldy. Though Meade became deeply attached to the horse, his staff officers soon began to complain about Baldy's peculiar gait which was faster than a walk and too slow for a trot.
Baldy's war record was remarkable. Wounded twice at Bull Run. Was at the Battle of Drainesville, took part in two of seven days of fighting around Richmond in 62. He was at the 2nd Bull Run, South Mountain and left on the field for dead at Antietam. He was found grazing on the battle field with a deep wound in his neck by a second Union advance. He was cared for and returned to duty. He bore the General at Fredricksburg, and Chancellorsville. He was in two days of fighting at Gettysburg and there he had a bullet to enter his body between his ribs and lodging there. The General would not part with him and kept him with army until spring of 64.
Baldy was to pasture in Pennsylvania. After Appomattox, Meade rushed to Philadelphia where he again met Baldy, who was fully recovered. For many years the two were inseperable and when Meade died in 1872, the bullet scared horse followed the hearse. Baldy died ten years later. His head and two fore feet were mounted and are treasured relics of the George G. Meade Post, Grand Army of the Republic, in Philadelphia.

I don't know what I will write about tomorrow. I will have to read some of my books! It will be a surprise if mom is able to type for me tomorrow after unloading a pickup full of hay. If you would like a couple more horse stories please let me know and I will do them.

Hi Peanut!I
want to thank everyone for the votes, friendship and support that you have given me! Thank you so much.

Day 19

Allow me to introduce you to General Phil Sheridan's beautiful black horse Rienzi who was renamed Winchester.

Rienzi was foaled at or near Grand Rapids, MI. and was brought into the Union Army by an officer of the 2nd Michigan Cavalry. He was presented to Sheridan, who was a colonel at the time, In the spring of 1862, when the regiment was stationed at Rienzi, MS. The horse was almost three at the time.

Rienzi was over seventeen hands tall, black in color, powerfully built, deep chest, strong shoulders and was very smart. In his prime he was one of the strongest horses Sheridan had ever known. Rienzi always held his head high an was a quick mover but Sheridan was always able to control him. He was also very cool and quiet under fire.

At the battle of Cedar Creek on October 19,1864, Rienzi has his name changed to Winchester, the town made famous by Sheridan's ride to save his army. The distance from Winchester to Cedar Creek is 19 miles. Sheridan mounted on Rienzi rallied his retreating troops and the followed him back to the front and won the battle.

The battle of Five Forks, Sheridan shouted "Where is my battle flag?" he seized it and he dashed ahead followed by his command of cavalry and infantry. Winchester leaped the low works and landed Sheridan amid astonished Southerners. Behind came Merritt's cavalry in a charge that pushed the Confederates back in confusion.

Winchester passed a comfortable old age in his master's stable and died in 1878.

The horse was sent to a taxidermist and was first displayed at the museum at Govenor's Island and is now at the Smithsonian. He was a quite a horse.

I will introduce you to JEB Stuart's horse and General Meade's horse tomorrow.

Hi Peanut!
Good evening! I want to first thank everyone for coming by and voting for me and for the kind compliments on my blogs. Thank you for the support and friendship.

Day 18

General Jackson's horse...

General Jackson had his favorite charger from the beginning of the war. It is thought that the horse was eleven years old. On May 11, 1861, Jackson was in command of the garrison at Harper's Ferry, when a train load of supplies and horses was on the way to Union camps, was captured. Among the horses there was one that captured General Jackson's eye. He purchased the horse from the army's quartermaster for his own personal use. The horse was named Old Sorrel. Old Sorrel carried Jackson over many bullet swept battlefield and was with Jackson when he was shot by his own troops at Chancellorsville. During the swift campaign through the Shenandoah Valley in 1862, when Jackson's "foot cavalry" marched towards the citadel at Washington, the horse was his constant companion.
In 1864, at a state fair in Hagerstown, MD, Old Sorrel was one of the main attractions, He was tethered in a corral and got to munch on hay and choice bits of vegetables. Nearly all of his mane and tail had disappeared before the end of the fair! Poor horse.
When Old Sorrel died, admirers of General Jackson sent him to a taxidermist and Old Sorrel had him stuffed. Old Sorrel now rests in the Soldier's Home in Richmond, VA.

Tomorrow I shall do General Sheridan's horse. Mom has seen him at the Smithsonian and says he is a pretty horse and had to been beautiful when he was alive!

Dear PeanutRIP, Laci, Lucky, Charlie & Chloe,
Dear friends first let me apologies to you all for not visiting you all sooner in my retirement. Mum and I took some time to rest after our campaign reign. Our time out has been slightly prolonged as many of you know mum’s uncle Tom had spinal surgery and his family are staying in the city with us right now so routines are not as usual. We thank most sincerely those of you who have dropped by with prayers for him.I thank you for you continued prayers for my health and support for mum. I am delighted to say that my check-up on Friday went well. Mum knows she is blessed every day I sat with her. On the subject of Kitties needing prayers for their health I pass on thanks for the prayers for our friend GINGER, her sister MAGGIE, brother TONY and family and while she is a little more stable Tony faces surgery and all need the circle of prayer continued. Please include in the circle ZABOO, BENJI, WICKET, SPONGIE together with their family and ALL THE KITIES AND FAMILIES KNOW TO US OR OTHERWIS WHO NEED OUR PRAYERS. We also remember all those involved in the Philippine disaster and pray for all our Mid-West friends including the Nice Crew. I would like to pay my respects to my outstanding successor as King, MALACHI, who’s reign is being conducted with the kindness and dignity we have come to know and expect from him and his mum. SNUGGLES must be complimented for an interesting and informative campaign which has been so clearly presented. I hope to be bringing you regular postcards from some of the places and events mum and I have enjoyed here in Ireland and around Europe. Today I would like you all to join me, after Queen Dolly’s kitten shower, a come to the Ballet. Mum and her girlfriends went to see this on Friday night and as she was so delighted by it I have decided to make it the first outing I bring you on as your retired King. So please join to see a very rare treat. “The Tchaikovsky Perm State Ballet of Russia” one of Russia’s oldest and most distinguished ballet companies on tour here for just four days in Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet. The tragic story well known to us is truly spectacular when presented as a ballet. The joy, suspense and despair of this tragedy are all magnificently realised in a whirlwind of precision delivery from all performers, with such exquisite costume and set design; a feast for any cat’s eyes! And last but not least such exceptional, expressive dancers. I hope you will enjoy our evening as much as I enjoy your company. For those of you who would like a sneak preview or something to show their families they might like to see the following YouTube cliphttp://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_de- tailpage&v=uozpMA_JKCs Sleep well dear furriends and remember those cats and their families in need of prayers and thank you for your support always Every Blessing, Hugs and Purrs K.

Hi Peanut!
Hello! I am going to introduced you to the horses of General Grant. He had quite a few but I am just going to introduce you to the ones that he really liked.

Day 17

When General Grant was appointed Colonel of the 21st Illinois Vol. Infantry, he bought a horse in Galena, IL. Though the horse was strong, he wasn't suited for the service. While taking his regiment to MO, they camped on the Illinois River. During this time, a farmer brought in a horse called Jack. He was a cream colored horse with a mane and tail that were silver in color with his hair becoming darker towards his feet. He was high in spirit, intelligence and a stallion. Grant used him until after the battle of Chattanooga in 63. Grant donated the horse to the Sanitary Fair in 63 or 64, and the horse was raffled off for $4,000.00!

During the battles of Fort Donelson and Shiloh Grant rode a brown roan horse called Fox. (Wasn't anymore info on him)

At Shiloh, the Confederates left behind a very ugly, rawboned horse, that was apparently not good for anything. As a joke, an officer gave the horse to Grant. Grant named the horse Kangaroo. With a short rest, food and care, Kangaroo turned out to be a magnificent horse and was used at Vicksburg. Grant also had two other horses, gave one away and used the other until late in the war.

Jeff Davis, a small black horse or large pony, was ridden by Grant because of a carbuncle that made riding a spirited horse painful. Jeff Davis was an easy riding, smooth gaited horse. Grant bought him and kept him until he died.

Grant was given his charger, Cincinnati, by S.S Grant. Grant kept Cincinnati until he died in 1878.

In January of 1864, some people purchased the prettiest horse they had ever seen for Grant and his name was Egypt. (I couldn't find anymore info about him)

I will be doing Generals Jackson, Sherman and Sheridan's horses over the next two days.

I want to thank you for the continued support, votes and friendship. I am so honored.

Love and purrs Snuggles

Hi Peanut!I
I would like for you to meet Traveller, Gen. Lee's favorite mount during the war. I hope You enjoy the story and are able to develop a picture of him in your mind.

Day 16

Traveller probably one of the most famous war horses in Gen. Lee's stable. The Gen. had five other horses but they all broke down under the strain and hardships of the war. Lee alternated Traveller with his second favorite mount, Lucy Long, who served for two years before being sent to the country to rest.
In the spring of 1862 Lee bought Traveller for $200 in currency from Major Thomas L. Broun. Lee had seen the horse a year before and became attached to him and called the horse his colt. It was almost a daily sight to see Lee riding Traveller about camp. Traveller became Lee's favorite mount.
Traveller was an iron gray in color, with black points and a long mane and tail and stood 16 hands. He was five years old when Lee acquired him. He was muscular and had strong hindquarters, small feet and a deep chest (room for heart and lungs)and short back. His head was refined with a broad forehead and quick eyes. Traveller had the conformation that enabled him to carry Lee all day on a march and still be fresh at the end of it.
Traveller was the horse chosen to carry Lee to Appomattox for the surrender at McLean's house and then carry him back to his troops before finally carrying him back to Richmond.
Lee served as the President of Washington and Lee University before his death. Traveller followed with his head bowed behind the funeral procession.
Five years later Traveller died. I read somewhere that he had stepped on a nail and that it was responsible for the death of the most famous of the civil war's horses.

Thank you for your votes and friendship. I will do General Grant's horses tomorrow.

Hi Peanut!
Mom says you are one pretty kitty!

Day 15

This is the last of my Oddities in an Odd War. I have enjoyed this part. The donkey story is a one of a kind! Thank you again for your friendship, support and votes.

*Winchester VA (located in N. VA) changed hands between the Union and Confederate Armies 76 times during the war as the armies surged to and for in the Shenandoah Valley.

*There was an Abraham Lincoln on each side of the war. The President and a Confederate, Pvt. Abraham Lincoln, of Co. F, 1st VA. Cavalry from Jefferson County. He was reported as a deserter and the North ended up with both!

*Years before the war, Jesse Grant, father of General Grant, lived and worked in the home of Owen Brown, whose small son would grow up to be John Brown the Abolitionist martyr who lit the fuse of the war.

*Of 425 Confederate Generals, 77 were killed or died of wounds during the war. The last surviving Lt. General of the Confederate forces was Simon Bolivar Buckner who lived to 1914. His son and name sake was killed as a General in WWII.

*Eight Union Generals came from the small town of Galena IL. They probably owed their rank to their friendship with U.S Grant, the most celebrated wartime citizen of the place.

*Of 546 nuns known to have served as battlefield nurses, 289 were from Ireland, 40 from Germany and 12 from France.

*Chimborazo Hospital, in Richmond, VA, is said to have been the largest hospital ever built in the Western Hemisphere and to hold that distinction to this day.

Tomorrow we shall meet Traveller, the horse that carried Robert E. Lee through the war.

Hi Peanut!
Day 14

Civil War Oddities con't

A French Army Veteran, Nonsieur Chillon, had migrated to California and in 1861 walked cross country to war, through Indian country, accompanied by his donkey Jason, with whom he slept.
Chillon found a home with the French speaking Third Louisiana, CSA, and settled down. There was one problem: the regiment's Colonel bore a strong resemblance to old Chillon. At bedtime Jason invariably pushed into the commander's tent and tried to curl up next to the officer, to the joyous yelping of the troops.

The 8th Wisconsin had one of the most remarkable mascots
in the Union Army, Old Abe, an American Bald eagle. Old Abe, a lively eagle, was brought to war by a soldier who had traded for the bird with an Indian for five bushels of corn. In camp, the bird followed his master like a puppy.
During battles, Abe soared aloft until the shooting stopped and then returned to the 8th. He feared artillery and would fly so high that he would almost be lost to sight He had the only bird's eye view of most of the battles fought in the Western theater. Sustaining at least one wound, he survived to live for fifteen more years in the Wisconsin State House. Today he is on display in the Wisconsin State Museum.

I will do some more oddities (and this war is full of them)tomorrow before introducing you to some of the General's horses! This is for the horse lovers out there.

Thank you for your daily votes and the friendship I treasure so much.

Love and purrs Snuggles

My sweet heart Talley and I have some wonderful news. We’ve finally chosen a date for our wedding day. Talley did some research and discovered January 6th (which is a Monday next year) was considered Christmas before the reform of the calendar. It is the feast of the Epiphany, which is when the Wise Men reached Jesus and announced his birth to the world. It is still called “Old Christmas” by orthodox Christians. The celebration is held on the Sunday that falls between January 2nd and January 8th. We chose Sunday, the fifth of January 2014 to exchange our vows.

We still have a lot of planning to do dear furiends. We will soon let you know where and on what page our wedding will take place. Until then, we hope you can set aside the date to share in the celebration of our love.

DEAR FURRIENDS I SINCELRLELY HOPE THAT YOU ARE HAVING A NICE PEACFULL DAY AFTER OUR LATE NIGHT AT THE OPERA. TOMORROW WE WILL RETURN TO DUBLIN BUT FOR TODAY LET US EXPLORE THE AREA OF WEXFORD JUST BY OUR HOTEL .
THE ICONIC PICTURE POST CARDS OF WEXFORD VERY OFTEN SHOW THE BRIDGE OVER THE RIVER SLANEY AT FERRYCARRIAG WITH THE SQUARE NORMAN CASTLE ON ONE SIDE AND THE ROUND TOUR ON THE OTHER. THE PRESENT RUIN OF FERRYCARRIG CASTLE STANDS ON THE NORTH BANK DATING TO THE 15TH CENTURY AND WAS CONSTRUCTED BY THE ROCHES, A PROMINENT FAMILY IN THIS AREA WHOSE FOREBEARS ALSO ARRIVED WITH THE NORMAN INVASION .THE CASTLE WAS DESIGNED TO ACT AS A DEFENCE FOR THE IMPORTANT RIVER FERRY AND OTHER CRAFT ON THE SLANEY. THE FERRY WAS THE ONLY MEANS OF CROSSING THE MOUTH OF THE RIVER AS A WOODEN BRIDGE WAS NOT CONSTRUCTED UNTIL 1795. THE CASTLE BUILT UPON A HUGE ROCK OUTCROP COMMANDS A FINE VIEW OF THE ESTUARY AND IS ONE OF THE MORE DRAMATIC AND OFT PHOTOGRAPHED NORMAN CASTLES. THE MAJESTY OF THE TOWER AND THE VIEWS ACROSS THE RIVER ARE WONDERFUL AND ALTHOUGH THE CASTLE IS NOT OPEN FOR HUMANS TO CLIMB FOR SAFETY REASONS, WE CATS WILL BE ABLE TO SAFELY CLIMB TO THE TOP AND ENJOY THE VIEW. ON THE OPPOSITE BANK OF THE RIVER JUST OPPOSITE OF THE RIVER WE CAN SEE A ROUND TOWER JUTTING UP FROM THE TREES ON THE SOUTH BANK. THIS IS NOT A TRUE EARLY MEDIEVAL TOWER BUT A MONUMENT ERECTED IN 1858 TO THOSE FROM WEXFORD WHO FOUGHT IN THE CRIMEAN WAR. THE TOWER AND CASTLE MAKE A STUNNING SIGHT AND YOU CAN SEE SOME PHOTOS ON MY PAGE.
I WILL AGAIN ASK YOU TO REMEMBER ALL THE SICK, HOMELESS AND ABUSED KITTIES TOGETHER WITH ANY FAMILIES OF OUR CC KITTIES WHO MAY BE IN NEED OF PRAYER. I ALSO THANK YOU YET AGING FOR YOUR KIND PRAYERS, VOTES AND SUPPORT FOR ME.

Dear PeanutRIP, Laci, Lucky, Charlie & Chloe,
PUSHKIN’S PALACE BULLETIN Wednesday 23rd October
I hope you have slept well and are ready to board my tour bus “rover” once again. Today I am we head out for a few day in my absolute favourite part of the country, County Wexford on the south east corner of Ireland. Referred to as the “sunny south east” and less than two hours from Dublin it has always been one of the country’s popular holiday destination especially for weekend breaks. I must at this stage admit to a certain bias as I know Wexford better than anywhere else as it is where my dear late grandpa came from and where all his family live so have spent so many happy times here. There is something for everyone so I really hope you will enjoy yourselves. As the tour is a little long I have posted it for you to read in full on my page and CMR
Please continue to paw a daily vote for MALACHI #194826 our outstanding candidate of the month and future king
You can catch up with all the news updates on the CMR page #46883 and see photos on my page
Sleep well dear furriends and again thank you as always for your visits, votes, prayers and kindness to me you are a wonderful group of cats. I am sincerely grateful for your support for me and I ask you please remember those many cats and their families in need of prayers and continue the prayer circle
Hugs and purrs & every blessing King PUSHKIN
