Favorite Quote:
"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers. For he today that sheds his
blood with me, Shall be my brother; be ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle
his condition. And gentlemen in England now abed, Shall think themselves
accursed they were not here, And hold their manhood's cheap whiles any
speaks, That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."
- William Shakespeare ("King Henry V")

The Civil War changed everything.
Boys to men.Men to Outlaws.
Before the battle of BullRun I was a boy. Before Gettysburg I was a man with hope. Before Appomattox I was a soldier. Then came Defeat. I was still a soldier fighting for the cause that others surrenderd. We hit the Yankee were it hurt, we robbed his banks an were hunted as Outlaws. Our Colonel he our leader an we followed him he pushed us forward when the pain of looking back was too great. Then oneday somthing changed him the world had become his enemy an we were trapped inside the Colonels dead soul. So I had to make a choice. An realized that the killin an the diein had just begun.
