    Greetings Civil War Talk members.

    I'm a new member to your group. What prompted me to join was a thread that I came across a couple of days ago (posted on April 8, 2018 by Bee) regarding an article that I wrote entitled "Undeniably Serendipitous Grant." Not being familiar with this site, I jumped to a couple of conclusions that I now know to have been entirely wrong (presumably everyone can still read my original post.) My sincere apologies to both Bee and the group. Best regards, Moe Daoust

    Welcome to the forum from Alabama, opinions are like noses, everyone has one and one of the great things about this group is that the vast majority welcome dissenting opinions even if they don't necessarily agree with them.

    Welcome. There are some who are deeply invested in the resurrection of Grant’s image. It is what it is.

    Welcome and very well stated. We do have some that hold Grant in the highest esteem and completely infallible, as you saw. History never plays out that way.

    Dang, I missed this the first time around ~ forum members are not allowed to lock threads (though that would be awesome). Only a Moderator can do this.
    I have one, but I use it for transportation. :tongue:

    Sour grapes make for the most excellent whine :wink:

    Your first bit of edification regarding the forum: members do not have the power to lock threads

    Hint number two: add a @ in front of @Bee or @contestedground so that we can fully appreciate your content

    Reminder: I fully disclosed in the OP of the thread that I initially had not read the article , thus I was looking for others' opinion. (eventually I did read it)

    Welcome to the forum. I hope this little introduction has proven cathartic

    My sincere apologies Bee. Not being familiar with this site, I completely missed the fact there were eight more pages of posts. Then again, your comment re "investigating how I could make this all go away....." led to believe that you had been the one responsible for shutting the thread down. I now see that it was, in fact, the Moderator who closed it down when things got a bit heated on page 9. I hope you can forgive my rash to judgement. Best regards, Moe Daoust
