    The Indian nations of Oklahoma were supposedly going to be recognized by the Confederacy and have representatives sent to the Confederate Congress. I'm not sure if this was included in the finished agreement though

    I've been to Andersonville It's quite sad to see the conditions they lived in They didn't have enough food to feed the guards, much less the prisoners The mass graves stretch for miles And the only water sources were heavily polluted I have a relative who was captured in the Cumberland Gap at the fighting there, and was sent to Andersonville, where he died of disease. The ironic thing was him and his father had left Georgia to join the Union army. The father had died of disease just before the son was captured. I wonder of him and Sylvanus met

    I’d like to point out that a war vet from this era, that was a southerner, actually said that the south did not fight for slavery (history has means of backing this up) and that the civil war was about state rights, not slavery. He said he hated the way the slaves were treated and that his family was even working on getting rid of slaves entirely among some others, and that the average soldier simply joined the south not knowing the full extent and the whole truth as to what was really happening

    We need a series on the fall of the Soviet Union. You have all kinds of political chicanery (including that on the part of Americans), a war (Afghanistan) and a coup attempt. Also I need to see a cartoon version of Gorbachev.
