Article Posting Guidelines are spelled out here. Thanks
Announcement: After 15 years of life, these boards have dwindled to a place for a mere handful of folks to post links and have the rare discussion. Having born the financial burden for both the hosting and the software for that same 15 year period, and just not having the time anymore for this effort, I have decided to shutdown these boards at the end of the USL & NASL season later this Fall. It has truly been a blast to have been part of growing a nation-wide fanbase thru internet interaction, that in 1999 was slim or non-existent for the Lower Divisions of Soccer. That has all changed and for the better. Fan support around the country is nothing like what it was when I started this, so from that perspective, I feel I accomplished my small part in contributing to growing that connection into what it is today. Thanks for everyone's support over the years, and especially for all the friendships across the country that Vicki and I have so enjoyed (and still do) over the years. Thanks !! Dan Barnes

1st Mn were one of the famous regiments of the civil war. They took 82 % casualties at Gettysburg (215 of 262).

Right. Now why is it that you call the American Civil War the War For Southern Independence ?

I was told by a Richmond native that they don't harbor a grudge against Minnesota and Wisconsin because we never made it farther than Gettysburg.

And he called it the War of Northern Aggression.

I had a high school history teacher that called it, The *Infamous* War of Northern Aggression. He also celebrated Robert E. Lee's birthday in class. I wore a Lee Sucks button

Sweet Jeebus guys. I am glad to have not met these people of which you speak. My older son is mixed race so I tend to be a bit touchy on the subject, but I would think that most people could agree on the Slavery = Bad principle.

Propes, where was this high school?

The war was fought for the right of Southern men to have the freedom to own other people, just as the original decleration of independence said 'all men are created equal" ... especially the ones we own..

The civil war had nothing to do with slavery, Lincoln would have gladly kept slavery if it meant keeping the union intact, and Grant famously owned slaves whilst Lee never did.

Uh-huh. The war was fought for the right of Southern men to have the freedom to own other people but the war had nothing to do with slavery. I'm picking up a slightly sinister vibe from you good Doctor. Just as I do from anyone who attempts to ameliorate Civil War motives.
