It is two days past T’giving and I always post something historical…I apologize that missed this for the day……
I know I try to force feed history to my readers….but with good reason…..we should never forget our heritage and culture……whether good or bad…..

The two races, the Negro and the Indian, are rapidly approximating; they are identified in interests and feelings….Should the Indians remain in this territory, the Negroes among them will form a rallying point for runaway Negroes from the adjacent states; and should they remove, the fastnesses of the country would be immediately occupied by negroes. — US General Thomas S. Jesup
Now with your history lesson complete…..go have some fun and smile…..
