On This Day in 1861........

The Civil War Began when Confederate forces began the bombardment of Fort Sumpter, South Carolina.

Being an observer of news and politics, there have been times in the last few years when I've had to wonder just when the next Civil War is gonna start.
The political & cultural divide in this country is just as great now as it was then and getting larger and more polarized by the day.

It's ironic that the next Civil War in this country is going to be about freedom from slavery too. A bit of an Ass-Backwards twist from 1861, but individual freedom is still gonna be the central issue.

It's a beautiful morning here in YerUnks part of the world and I'm gonna go work in the garden.

Gratuitous Picture for a Monday Morning-
