Great Post Johan that is what I was trying to say also.  I love the story about the high schoolers digging a hole. 

You have recommended those two books before.  I am going to have to add them to my women's history  library.  There is my Civil War library , my western history library and my women's history library. 

There were strong women in the south and north , but they paid for what they did .  Fanny Kimble , an English Actress wrote a journal about her experiences after she married Butler , the largest slave holder in Georgia.  Her discriptions of living on a plantation are very interesting .   When she divorced him he got the children .  One of the girls sided with her eventually the other never sided with her. 

 Oh dear if you aren't a day over 300 , I hate to think how old that makes me!!!!!
