"Too many Universities & School Systems are about Radical Left Indoctrination, not Education. Therefore, I am telling the Treasury Department to re-examine their Tax-Exempt Status... and/or Funding, which will be taken away if this Propaganda or Act Against Public Policy continues. Our children must be Educated, not Indoctrinated!"--DJT

In 1880, Mary Hardy had given birth to a son named Douglas. He followed in his father’s footsteps, leading American forces in the Pacific in World War II and turning the tide of the Korean War. The “American Caesar” is one of America’s lasting icons and one of history’s most notable generals.
Had the young Major MacAthur perished from his severe wounds in the Battle of Franklin, then America would have never known his son Douglas. How different would our history have been?
A Confederate officer blocked his path, firing a pistol point-blank into MacArthur’s chest.
MacArthur thrust his sword into the officer’s own chest, but as he fell he fired once more.
MacArthur collapsed beside his foe, another pistol shot in his leg. He was nearly trampled before the Wisconsin soldiers located and carried him to relative safety.
Incredibly, MacArthur survived his wounds. He also survived the war, married Mary Pinkney Hardy, and briefly took up the study of law.
In the link below, former Director of the Carter house museum, Thomas Cartwright, details the action and fighting around the Carter house on the evening of the battle of Franklin, during its fiercest hand-to-hand fighting.
Here, Tom Cartwright tells the poignant story of Captain Tod Carter:
In what I believe was an inflection point in our national history, something else occurred at the Battle of Franklin....
General Hood had 5 divisions, stretching about a mile in width, converging in on a line of works less than half a mile wide.
That's what made Franklin such a fierce and chaotic battle - so many men were stacked in around such a small area and were blown away in only a few hours. There were about 20,000 Confederate soldiers converging on a point less than 3,000 feet in width (not counting Ed Johnson's Division attacking the Federal right later)...
Social media abounds with references to an impending Civil War in America. Many deranged shit posters speak about the prospect of warfare between Americans in what can only be described as anticipatory glee. Others, seemingly aware that their postings can be - and often are - held against them, make thinly-veiled allusions to one side having an distinct advantage over the other. Some actually delight in posting pictures of their personal weapons arsenals ...
@Cstippg - thanks. I had ancestors on both sides of that conflict. reading through some of their documents is heart-wrenching.
I speak with my 88-yr-old mom on the phone every night. Tonight, among other subjects, we spoke about Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. She has no smart phone and no access to social media. Just watches whatever she finds on TV news. She loves Trump. After we spoke about the latest news on Maxwell, out of the blue she says "I would watch out if I were her, because Epstein didn't kill himself." I was floored. I have never mentioned this theory to her, ever.
You are so kind...
I've lost lot of what I used to know
History is my first love. I got to teach World Civ I/II for one semester. It used to be Western Civ -- that's where students would actually get the foundational informational for their American History classes.
So much is not taught and SO much is no longer in the history texts purchased by high schools and colleges. Replaced by Marxist/Communist/Socialist garbage.
I love this! I’ve brainwashed my kids to believe that the USA is an amazing country worth fighting for; I’ve brainwashed my kids to have reverence for veterans, police officers, and firefighters; I’ve brainwashed my kids to believe alcohol & drug abuse will make their lives hard & depressing; I’ve brainwashed them to love God, country, & family above all else.
Dissenting voices notwithstanding, the utility of this platform is limited.
Unlike Twitter, you need to first join to read any posts.
Moreover, posts on Parler cannot be directly shared across other platforms, due to the intervening login wall. A screencap could be used, but replies won't be updated and relevant links wouldn't work.
These shortcomings need to be addressed before Parler can truly be considered an alternative.

Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
