#OnThisDay, as the devout William Rosecrans galloped to the rear and, in his own words, “prostrated myself in spirit at the feet of our Crucified Lord and implored His most Sacred heart to pity us,” George Thomas was NOT in the mood for pity. He was too busy building a line.
Rosecrans was a complex dude and a titan of his era, but at Chickamauga, his wild temperament got the best of him and he became one of the few men on Earth who could say, “I was outgeneraled by Braxton Bragg.” (It hurts just to type that. Let’s give Longstreet the credit.)
As his right wing crumbled, Rosecrans beat feet to Chattanooga, where he was helped from his horse “faint and ill, stunned by sudden calamity.” An observer said: “Chickamauga is as fatal a name in our history as Bull Run.”

Only someone forgot to tell George Thomas.

On Political Violence in America

by

@IvanThrone

The Dark Triad Man

"Ivan, how will we know when the hammer is really dropping on #CivilWar?

The first thing to understand is how all of this works.

Everyone thinks they do.

Most are idiot pawns.

/1
Everyone focuses on #Antifa and #MAGA folks clashing in the street.

This is silly street theater, a simple steam valve on entertainment and and circuses.

If you're outraged by political street violence, you're enthralled by theater.

It's not really the thing to watch.

/2
You must learn to see the hands that move the levers.

And the minds that move those hands.

And the vision that entangles those minds.

Who is the spirit behind the web?

It's pretty mundane and most people refuse to understand how it all works.

It's not a grand conspiracy.

Quick update on #AZSen. Using my AZSen data and cross referencing the @FiveThirtyEight confirmed Russian Bot data, here are your top #AZSen tweeters in the month of August, as well as how many times they were pushed by confirmed Russian Bots.

@K92 leads the pack. Funny.
@bbusa617, who has tweeted a total of 107 #AZSen tweets this month so far, was pushed by confirmed Russian Bots a total of 169 times. Pretty unoriginal stuff here. Diminishing returns are probably getting pretty high. Guy loves @kelliwardaz and pushes fairly positive content.
@michaelbeatty3, who looks to be a #WWG1WGA #QAnon conspiracy pusher, has tweeted #AZSen content 26 times this month, and was pushed by confirmed Russian bots 140 times. Likely the crazy conspiracy crap. Normal Kelli Ward positive pusher.

I'm seeing some misinformation here re: non-slaveholding southerners fighting in the #CivilWar since @TheTattooedProf 's #RobertELee thread went viral. So let's get a few things right:
1. Support for the #Confederacy varied greatly among non-slaveholders, depending on rural/urban, Upper/Lower South, slave societies/societies w slaves, & ties to slaveholders. Class also mattered: many landholding yeomen DID think 1 day they could own slaves, some rented slaves.
2. But for many cyclically-poor landless whites, esp in the cotton South (abt 1/3 white pop), there was no desire to fight & die to protect slave property. They even realized that their lives were negatively impacted (socio-economically) by the "peculiar institution."

He wanted to join the @USMC, but he was too short.

The paratroopers wouldn't have him either.

Reluctantly, he settled on the infantry, enlisting to become nothing less than one of the most-decorated heroes of #WorldWarII.

He was Audie Murphy, the baby-faced Texas farmboy who was born #OnThisDay in 1924. He became a U.S. legend.

Murphy grew up on a sharecropper's farm in Hunt County, Texas.
Left at a very young age to help raise 10 brothers and sisters when his father deserted their mother, Audie was 16 when his mother died. He watched as his siblings were doled out to an orphanage or relatives.

Seeking an escape from that life in 1942, he looked to the #Marines.

Get the message, #Iran: #Israel will hammer you every time.

The #airstrikes into #Syria demonstrates #Israeli resolve to not allow Iran to establish military bases, facilities, or conduct activities near the border.
@netanyahu #middleeast #SyriaStrikes cnn.it/2jPrpFr
It should be pretty clear by now- since #Israel has launched at least a hundred strikes into #Syria in the last seven years- that every time they have felt threatened by #Iran, the #Israeli's will take decisive action. #SyriaStrikes
#Iran is determined to position themselves to be able to deal a devastating blow to their hated enemy, #Israel, from bases in #Syria. Their view is that they have helped the #Assad regime with their #civilwar and now it is payback time. #SyriaStrikes
