Nice. Kind of puts to rest the modern take on the old animosities by the people who actually lived that horror.

Since he is the OP, I am guessing it had something to do with the Fritz Hollings question.

Correct.



I'm sorry, I do not know the Fritz Hollings name.

A quick search, I found this:

http://www.scpronet.com/point/9909/p04.html

".......In 1959, Gov. Fritz Hollings appointed Hollis to serve on a commission to plan the state's observance of the 100th anniversary of the War Between the States. President Dwight Eisenhower had commissioned a national Civil War Centennial, and the state centennial commissions were to coordinate activities. ........."

This clip is in the Ken Burns Civil War series. Chokes me up every time I see it. These men, so busy killing each other in 1863, show only fellowship to each other 50 years later. I've seen the same thing in some japanese-american WWII veteran get-together videos. Probably a lesson there for the people fighting each other today.

I live just below the Mason Dixon and to try and comprehend what the men went through in Gettysburg, Antietam, Valley Forge and all the other battlefields.
The Chesapeake, Delaware and the Potomac....the conditions....the history....the sacrifice....
One can not even imagine how horrific it was and it happened right below out feet.

What, they didn't have Flip and GoPro cameras back then?
Next thing your gonna tell me is youtube is somewhat new!


http://inventors.about.com/library/i...onpictures.htm

"................The first machine patented in the United States that showed animated pictures or movies was a device called the "wheel of life" or "zoopraxiscope". Patented in 1867 by William Lincoln,.............

...........The Frenchman Louis Lumiere is often credited as inventing the first motion picture camera in 1895. But in truth, several others had made similar inventions around the same time as Lumiere. What Lumiere invented was a portable motion-picture camera, film processing unit and projector called the Cinematographe, three functions covered in one invention.............."



Maybe if the word "film" was used instead of "video" it would make more sense?
