Backlist: Promoting Southern Style In Our Children

Keeping the Southern way of life alive in this day and age is sometimes difficult. While we all strive to be “blue book” perfect, gracious, and genteel, what of our children. Today I noted a news item that may help our younger generation. Hasbro is launching a new line of games that promote listening, etc. Of note is the pre-school geared manners game.

 Ft. Gibson Historic Site holds period “bake days” throughout the year. This fall (2008), mark your calendars for November 8. The fun begins at 10 AM. See how the US Army baked bread for troops in Indian Territory in the late 1800s. Take home some of this bread and support the Friends of the Fort, which benefits the operation of this historic site. http://www.okhistory.org/outreach/military/fortgibson.html

Beyond the inaccurate, but commonly accepted, label of “Civil War”, that atrocity should always, more accurately, be referred to as: The War Between the States.

Backlist:

If you haven’t visited the Missouri Civil War Museum website lately, it’s worth a whole new look. Earlier this year, they redesigned the site, located at www.mcwm.org, adding more Missouri Civil War information and giving it a good “polish”. Plans are to continue updating the site on a regular basis. The site features the ongoing work at Jefferson Barracks National Historic Site and the 1905 Post Exchange Building , home to the Missouri Civil War Museum. The future will show that this group will build Missouri ’s largest and finest Civil War museum, library, and educational center. (As reported in Civil War News).
