Best of Civil War Memory (3) Deleted

Just a quick not to let you know that I deleted the last installment of my “Best of” series.  I blame myself for this.  The post included a reference to a specific piece of writing from a Fredericksburg-area blogger that I’ve had problems with in the past.  Keep in mind that I did not include the author’s name nor did I include a link in the original post.  Unfortunately, I missed the reference when I decided to use it in the series and it led to this blogger issuing a highly insulting response on his own blog.  Again, I blame myself for this.  This individual not only attacked me, but also chose to insult all high school history teachers.  Within hours the post was taken down, but I did manage to save a copy of it.  In the event that I learn of any comments that are personal in nature on this particular blog in the future, I will not hesitate to publish this deleted post.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

    It is sad to see the decay of good manners and decorum has invaded the blogworld. The old saying good manners make for polite company should be upheld by all.
