Thanks for shearing, dear)
Nice to know.
I didn't know it went all the way to France!-Kati
That is really interesting.
Really? This has gotten me so curious. Was it the British the Americans were fighting, or the battle between the North and South actually went that far?
Both sides were North and South. The South never got any real international support for their cause. Especially not another nation's troops.
Adam - this which you have answered is unbelievable ignorance. The Canadian Education System needs a good overhaul if this is an example of what they produce!I had a sneak peep at E-Lou's blog !!! And now I know why!B J Hunnicut aka Colin
Wow, sure stretched a ways
I've heard of this naval battle but don't know much about it.
Wait, our civil war made it to France?
I know nothing about this but I see there's one know-it-all, very rude person that does.
