Some of Uncle Billy's Midwesterners outside Atlanta


Color Guard of the 7th Illinois, the regiment that held Alatoona Pass against overwhelming odds. The Henry repeating rifles helped.



Illinois men making Georgia "howl", as Sherman put it.



Uncle Billy, not a man to be trifled with nor one given to tolerating rebellion against The United States.

Tom, if you would like, you can post your reasoning behind these oversized pics.

If you are going to rep these soldiers you had better be one of them. I don't think you are.

What's the point Tom? serious question

Tom's posts in this thread have been both informative and entertaining. Why don't you focus on making yours at least one of those two things before you worry about him.

Well for the record miss Know it all, his posts were in response to one of mine

Now since you're his cheerleader, what is your stance on this subject? On second thought don't bother.

Props to all the cheerleaders

Well LT you brought up Gone With the Wind and the pre rebellion situation in Georgia. That put the Illinois and other Midwestern men who straightened Georgia out to mind.

You can read a great deal of character in the faces of these men, veterans of Shiloh, Stones River, Vicksburg, Chickamauga, Chattanooga, Atlanta, the March to the Sea and the March through the Carolinas. These were the men who saved our nation and tore apart the Southern Slavocracy. Good men.

I appreciate the history lesson, kind Sir. However, it is irrelevant to the subject at hand.
