That is not true. I did say that I am a descendent of one of Sherman’s soldiers. John M. Farmer of the 60th Illinois…14th Army Corps. But I am not related to Sherman. However my good friends, the Alabama Flaggers now seem to think I am related to Sherman and now… Cotton Mather. Man, where do they get this stuff from…enjoy.
I would love to know where I ever stated being related to Cotton Mather…so Justin, Freda or Skid, drop me a line a let me know…would ya! Thanks. BTW, not related to Mather either. Heritage, not History.
I put forth this challenge after numerous comments made on Connie Chastain’s “Backsass” blog from Michael Lamb. Michael has claimed numerous times that slavery was not the cause of southern secession. It is also due to my favorite friends – Skid Billeaudeaux, Freda Mincey and Justin “Confederate Rebel” Burton mentioning me several times on the BlogTalkRadio program hosted by Justin. In the following podcast Justin rants about political corrcetness, history and the cause of the war.
Anyone is welcome to add their comments after reading those 100 pages. But this really goes out the Justin, Freda and Skid. I know you follow the blog due to numerous mentions on Facebook and your podcasts. You constantly talk about reading real history…well here it is. Those 100 pages are all primary source documents and Confederater documents…no Yankee “propoganda” here. So have at it boys and girls…let me know what you find.
Skid Billeaudeaux and the Burton’s tried to intimidate me by creating a Facebook page called “Confederates Against Corey Meyer” because they said that I had harassed him and his friends…yet they failed to provide one ounce of proof. This is the result of their intimidation…
Here we can see that Judy Smith Photography has posted what would appear to be a WWII era B-17 trailing a Virginia Flaggers banner asking the VMFA to return the flags to the Confederate Chapel on the museum grounds. They claim, of course, that the plane is the famous “Memphis Belle”
UPDATE:Yes, “Freda” did call my school and no, she was not taken seriously… and should not be taken seriously. They should also remember that threats to a teacher in a school can and will be taken seriously though.
It appears that today these two ne’er-do-wells placed a call to my place of work…a Community Unit School District in N. Central Illinois. Now I was not informed of any calls concerning my teaching coming in from Alabama or anywhere else in the Union, so it will be interesting to discuss this with my principal tomorrow morning over a cup of coffee. Here is what the exchange looked like…I apologize off the bat for my language…so if you don’t like the “F” word, don’t read below. If I remember right, Confederate Rebel Burton was once an Illinois resident and apparently he did not pay attention in school. Too bad he was not one of my students, maybe he would have learned something useful…like how to type or write. But I doubt it. Here are the links to their Facebook pages…feel free to let them know that harassing a public school is not cool…hey that rhymed…I’m a poet and didn’t know it. Amazing.
