The news today

Lots of silly news today:

Landon House, a Maryland mansion where Confederate General J.E.B. Stuart held the "Sabers and Roses Ball" in September 1862, is going to have a McDonalds built nearby - a McDonalds that is ACW themed. (How do you theme a McDonalds?)

A model of the CSS Shenandoah has been built with popsicle sticks. It was made "as authentic as possible."

An Alabama town is moving a Civil War graveyard to make way for a recreational site. Pleasure before honor, always.
