I'm still attracted to flying pigs, not as impossibilities, as examples of things you'd love to believe. NYPL
You know the " Where's Buster's Grave? " question? It's actually a fair question considering Killer Angels made it into popular culture. A ton of folks previously uninterested in history much less our Civil War got sucked in and are now as geeky as the rest of us. AND try to forget they ever showed up at Gettysburg to ask that question.
What was YOUR " Where's Buster's Grave? ", or less obviously silly, much regretted take on the war? Myths you were forced to let go, fondly held, erroneous impressions? Players in the conflict you kinda liked before discovering say, Sickeles wasn't Sickles. I deeply suspect several of our members never had one, most of us did. It's a little too easy poking fun at the " Where's Buster? " population, haven't we all been part of the census at some point? Obvious disclaimer, please no " Well THEY say the war was over slavery ' opportunistic stuff?
Cough it up. One of mine would be having to figure out where JPK's brother, Sam Huson, 14th Iliinois died, Shiloh or Pittsburg Landing? Took awhile...
