While it does give away your position, and the panic it created had the ability to unnerve even seasoned troops. "Everyone ran as if pursued by his own personal devil." Whole Regiments ran, the majority w/o firing a shot.

It is hard for us to understands it's impact "today" but it seemed to tap into something primal.

I am a hopeless stick in the mud. With all due respect. Would you have asked me to either rejoice or find some place else, if I turned out to be Black?

Mercator, I could give a dam less about your color...I respect my heritage...Does being black resolve you from being the color that sold the slave to the south?...I will be at our 150th reunion of the last battle at Fort Blakely (5 days after Lee surrendered)...My GGF fought at that battle,we have never in my family thought slaves were right to own...we were invaded by a superior Northern Army, and we lost(temporarily)...The fight goes on...until the South is on equal footing..I fly the First Confederate Flag at my home, with the Stars and Stripes higher and out front... Am I loyal,yes to my state and the Constitution,not your color..
