When I now have to listen attentively to my husband talk about last night's game and sports stats., because he listens to me talk about the Civil War, and even asks questions. Sigh...
I was recently hospitalized for a month and talked to every nurse and doctor endlessly about Civil War era medicineWhen you're given morphine sulfate for pain and you think: This is so cool! It's the same medicine Civil War veterans would have been given. Now I can see what it feels like and how it works.
Their 'actual' text messages from Gettysburg were posted a few years back.I wonder "what if smartphones existed during the Civil War?" I wonder which famous figures from the Civil War would be especially active on social media, and what they would say. I wonder what they would post on Instagram. I wonder which images from the Civil War would go the most viral.
