    Hollywood recently unveiled yet another of many feature films for the holiday season, this one the ambitious World War II era character study, Unbroken. It was directed by Angelina Jolie, and while I haven’t seen it yet, the topic looks fascinating. When it came time for the red carpet activities, though, Jolie’s family had to step in for her and do a quick turn for the cameras. Here’s one photo from the event, featuring husband Brad Pitt and several of their children.That’s a handsome group of fellows, isn’t it? But if you look a bit closer there’s a bit of...

    July 3 marks the last day of the battle of Gettysburg 150 years ago -- Pickett's Charge, the "high water mark of the Confederacy." July 4 is of course Independence Day, but this year it is also the sesquicentennial of the surrender of Vicksburg, which split the rebel states in two by securing the length of the Mississippi for the Union. This week, a century and a half ago, marked the certain beginning of the end for the Confederacy and thus of slavery and the rise of the great Republic of freedom. To commemorate this week, I am spending the...

    Archaeologists discover holes carved into the ground in Shiloh which could have held the beams of The Tabernacle or Tent of Meeting, which, according to the Bible, housed the Ark of the Covenant. A model of the Tabernacle at Timna Park in Israel << 1 2 >> The Tabernacle or Tent of Meeting -- which, according to the Bible, housed the Ark of the Covenant -- was a temporary structure made of wooden beams and fabric, not materials cut out for thousands of years of survival. Nevertheless, undaunted, archaeologists have searched for evidence of the Tent of Meeting for years,...

    April 7, 1862 (Monday) Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee General Grant tried to sleep, first under a tree near his men and then in a cabin that he found already occupied with the wounded. Through the night, Union transports and reinforcements arrived at Pittsburg Landing, bringing 25,000 much-needed men. Grant was certain that his line could withstand a Confederate attack. In fact, he was so certain, that he wanted to go on the offensive. Meanwhile, General Beauregard, now the sole commander of the Confederate Army of Mississippi, slept in General Sherman’s tent, the former owner vacating it as the Rebels attacked the...

    April 6, 1862 (Sunday) Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee. The Confederate Army of Mississippi was exhausted. After three treacherous days of marching through cold mud and rain, all 40,000 of them lay quiet, flat against the soaked ground waiting for dawn and the call to attack. As the dawn cast its first light slivers across the eastern horizon, Generals Albert Sidney Johnston and P.G.T. Beauregard, first and second in command of the army, listened to the incipient tenors of battle developing cautiously in their front. Johnston sent word for a general advance and rode to lead his men. Beauregard remained to organize...

    Long before the sun rose over the Shiloh Baptist Church, people were passing through metaldetectors at the historic African American congregation where President Barack Obama and his family will celebrate Easter. [Snip] Rev. Wallace Charles Smith, in the church's program, said, "We are honored to welcome to our 10 a.m. Easter service President Barack Obama, First LadyMichelle Obama, and daughters Malia and Sasha.

    US Magazine ^ | 06/27/2010
    In August's Vanity Fair, Angelina Jolie opens up about her six children and relationship with beau Brad Pitt. The Salt star, 35, admits she dresses Shiloh, 4, "like a little dude. Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. It's how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys' everything. She thinks she's one of the brothers." But Jolie says she isn't worried: She was just like Shiloh as a kid. "Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one...

    Kyodo News (Japan) ^ | July 7, 2006
    The U.S. Navy's two Aegis-equipped destroyers temporarily left the waters in the Sea of Japan and the Pacific side of Japan where they had been deployed to detect and track North Korea's missile launches, U.S. administration sources said Friday. The move stems from North Korea's failed test of a Taepodong-2 long-range ballistic missile and a U.S. assessment that it will take time for the North to prepare to launch another one. The two destroyers, the Curtis Wilbur and Fitzgerald, had been deployed in those waters since North Korea accelerated its preparation over the past weeks to launch the Taepodong-2,...
  • Today In History - April 6, 1862 - The Battle of Shiloh

    04/06/2006 12:11:41 PM PDT · by MplsSteve · 10 replies · 278+ views
    Today marks the anniversary of the battle of Shiloh (or as some Southerners refer to it - Pittsburgh Landing) that took place on April 6-7, 1862. The Confederate Army of Mississippi launched a large dawn attack along the Union encampments, catching them off-guards. The Confederates pressed steadily as the Union army conducted a fighting retreat towards the banks of the Tennessee River. Only a determined stand by some hastily put-together Union troops (at the Hornets Nest) allowed Grant to put together a strong defensive line. The death of Confederate General A.S. Johnston threw the Rebel attack into disarray and the...

    A questionnaire attached to Jesse "Tobe" Blankenship's 1877 request for a Civil War pension asked why he, a Lawrence County man, fought for the Union. "My father was threatened to be hung by a Southern officer — do not know his name," he answered. A mountain man with eight sons, Hudson Blankenship was neutral on the Civil War. At the time, it was the equivalent of declaring himself a Unionist. His refusal to become an informant for the Confederate Army nearly cost him his life. The threat inflamed teenaged Tobe Blankenship, said Moulton's Gladys Blankenship LuAllen, Tobe Blankenship's great-granddaughter. "It...

    Now that it's officially summer, here's my advice to parents who want to continue teaching their kids during the next two months and learn something themselves: visit Civil War battlefields. I probably overdid it with my own children, visiting about 35 in all, but here are my top five: 1. Gettysburg (July 1863) Much as I'd like to make a surprise choice, there's no avoiding Gettysburg's primacy and sadness, with over 50,000 soldiers becoming casualties over three days. Driving and walking this Pennsylvania battlefield explains much: the big rocks of Devil's Den were indeed devilish, and the awesome difficulty of...

    The First Day April 6, 1862 With the loss of Forts Henry and Donelson in February, General Johnston withdrew his disheartened Confederate forces into west Tennessee, northern Mississippi and Alabama to reorganize. In early March, General Halleck responded by ordering General Grant to advance his Union Army of West Tennessee on an invasion up the Tennessee River. Occupying Pittsburg Landing, Grant entertained no thought of a Confederate attack. Halleck's instructions were that following the arrival of General Buell's Army of the Ohio from Nashville, Grant would advance south in a joint offensive to seize the Memphis & Charleston Railroad,...

    Two U.S. Navy cruisers ordered home from Gulf ABOARD USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN, Gulf, March 28 (Reuters) - Two U.S. Navy cruisers that have been firing Tomahawk cruise missiles at Iraq over the past week received the order to return home on Friday after more than eight months at sea. The Mobile Bay and Shiloh, both part of the Abraham Lincoln battle group, are among some 30 ships that have been bombarding Iraq with missiles since the U.S.-led war started on March 20. The news was greeted with cheers on the Mobile Bay, whose normal six-month deployment was extended because of...

    Lt. Will George commanded his men to fire as the assault on the Hornet's Nest began. And fire they did, for more than an hour, aiming the reproduction Breech-body Whitworth cannon at Union forces taking cover in the distant woods. Confederate forces routed Union forces from the Hornet's Nest. In spite of thousands of rounds of rifle, pistol and cannon fire, not one death occurred. Exactly 140 years to the day after the original battle of Shiloh, more than 4,000 Civil War re-enactors re-created the battle Saturday in a field eight miles south of the actual battle site, now Shiloh...
