    I’m sure we’ll be hearing plenty about Gettysburg this weekend. How about something on Vicksburg? :) Equally important?

    Wise words for us to inspire to live by! A great Football Movie.

    Rest well ye souls that wore the Blue and the Gray we remember you each and every day.

    RIP Brave Warriors!
