    • Welcome to liveleak hillbilly. I've been in your nick of the woods. Ive been all over studying battlefields of the Civil War. I'm retired Army and majored in US Military History. Very nice area around Shiloh. Wife and I rode on the bike there taking back roads from here in Chattanooga. We have very nice Battlefield Parks here in Chattanooga and neighboring Georgia.
      Take care.

      • Thanks. I took some Boyscouts to Chickamauga once for a 20 mile battlefield hike. We did an easy pace and finished in about eight hours. Along the way I told the boys all about the fight there, the role of railroads in concentrating force, the fog of battle, the multiplying effect of the Spencer repeating rifle, and the way grape shot could ruin your whole day.

        At the end of the hike, I asked the boys what they had learned about the Civil War. One boy, nursing a blister, said "If you didn' More..

        Were you here after the Museum was built?

        Another place to go if in the Ga. area is Kennesaw, Ga. at the battlefield. It was the site of the last stand before Sherman went into Atlanta. I am a 33 year Army Vet, Command Sgt. Major and cannot imagi More..

      • There are three museums I can think of in that area. One is the visitor center at Chickamauga with the interpretive show, exhibits, and a massive rifle collection. Another is the Park Service museum outside of Point Park. I remember they had a giant painting of the Battle of Lookout Mountain there. I also remember a place they called "Confederama" that had lights turning on and off on a giant terrain table illustrating the different engagements at the Seige of Chattanooga.

      • Oh yeah. The Confederama was privately owned for 30 years and was at the foot of the mountain and the people of Rock City bought it and moved it to the top of the mountain. IN the winter and fall after the leaves fall, you can see many other monuments all along the side of Lookout Mountain. Most of them are on private property, but you can see them from looking down from Point Park "lookout" platform. I, being from here and knowing many many people, have had the opportunity to visit ma More..

        Thanks. That "abortion or murder" clip you posted this morning was a stomach churner. It was also the sort of thing that Liveleak exists for. Thanks for putting it up there.

    Here is a link to my woefully under-visited YouTube Channel.

    My profile sound bite is a snippet from Roy Acuff's rendition of The Tennessee Waltz.

    Lemarcus Davidson Appeal

    Entry Added: 7 days ago By: john1054

    In the news.

    "Attorneys for Lemaricus Davidson argued in court Tuesday, saying search warrants in the case are invalid.

    Davidson was sentenced to death for his role in the murders of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom.

    His attorneys argued the search of his home, that led police to Christian's body in January of 2007, was unlawfully conducted. They claim the search warrant was "incomplete" because it did not include a judge's signature, which is required under state law.

    Prosecutors say there was enough evidence to validate the warrant, without that signature.

    It may be months before the judge makes a ruling."

    Thoughts on Collaboration Vids

    Entry Added: 7 days ago By: john1054

    Ghost Lights of North Carolina was a nice success as a collaboration. It was fun and collaborations like that build community.

    Besides Livelurked, who first came up with the idea and gave plenty of good advice about it, there were six other contributors to whom I gave credits. Three other people sent me links for possible footage to use that wasn't of themselves and I couldn't really use. Several people contacted me afterwards saying that they had wanted to contribute but had been unable to for one reason or another.

    I had initially contacted twenty-one people. Of them, two-thirds said they would participate and one-third actually did send clips of themselves. This isn't bad and is about the same level of participation I got six months ago when I uploaded the Liveleakers Making Vines collaboration.

    For future planning purposes: one third participation is probably a good figure.
