LOL LOL LOL Talking about Brooks Simpson misrepresenting or misunderstanding the written word http://cwcrossroads.wordpress.com/2014/03/23/learning-to-read/ ? Or you kidding me not the great Brooks Simpson!!!!!!!!!!
Recently Brooks banned me from his blog at http://cwcrossroads.wordpress.com/2014/03/12/the-daily-show-fizzle/ on some trumped up excuse about making an accusation twice. No joke it is right there on his pages. Actually I was trying to figure out if I had a problem with my computer, Simpson had a problem with his blog or if Word Press was having problems. As proof I offer this email I opened this morning —–

- Now it is just my opinion Simpson was just looking for an excuse to ban me. The reason being we were discussing slavery as a cause of the WBTS. Simpson and Dick had fired all their bullets trying to prove this point when Simpson drawing on all of historical training brings up a quote by J. S. Mosby, who states — “People must be judged by the standard of their own age. If it was right to own slaves as property it was right to fight for it. The South went to war on account of slavery. South Carolina went to war – as she said in her Secession proclamation – because slavery wd. not be secure under Lincoln. South Carolina ought to know what was the cause for her seceding.”
- . I countered with one of Sherman’s quotes in which he stated the war was for control of the Mississippi river — From W. T. Sherman’s memoirs—
CHAPTER VII. LOUISIANA 1859-1861.
I think my general opinions were well known and understood, viz., that “secession was treason, was war;” and that in no event would the North and West permit the Mississippi River to pass out of their control. But some men at the South actually supposed at the time that the Northwestern States, in case of a disruption of the General Government, would be drawn in self-interest to an alliance with the South. What I now write I do not offer as any thing like a history of the important events of that time, but rather as my memory of them, the effect they had on me personally, and to what extent they influenced my personal conduct.
I mentioned to Simpson that we all know that neither Mosby or Sherman were policy makers for their respective governments and that is why I never use Shaman as a source in a real factual debate. Being a typical neo-yankee, Brooks then goes into a rant about how I refuse to learn etc etc etc. Well if Simpson was any sort of un-biased historian he could produce better sources or just admit the truth I GOT THE BEST OF HIM!!!!!!
I know Simpson will more than likely read this so since I cannot find anything on the subject — Simpson please show us where Mosby was a policy maker for South Carolina or the Confederacy
