Still flu-ridden, Ole,

And thus having a hard time responding to things as well as I'd like to.

I have been trying to find a very brief essay, circa 2000, entitled, "How Can I Celebrate Our Dead" by a South Carolinian Woman whom refused to lay wreaths on her Southern CW ancestors' graves. It was about 4 paragraphs long, and one whole paragraph negatively referenced The South's insistance on using names other than " The Civil War".

After reading it, I consciously chose to always say TWBTS, it hurt me that bad.

Yes, you grew up in The North, where it was ALWAYS The Civil War in your lifetime.

It was a concession to me to start using CW here and on the other threads....
