What can I say, the Confederate prison in Salisbury was the place where the first picture of a baseball game was taken/drawn/painted. (I can't remember which right now). Lol, I think that's hilarious...


Of course... that was before it wasn't wayyyyy over capacity.

Without a doubt it would be Virginia. The list of military greats who hail from Virginia is staggering, as well as the numerous institutions in that state dedicated to the military. Virginia, hands down.

Lets hear it for the Tar Heel state, for sticking it to the Feds. (even though we fought on the wrong side (just look back at history)), and for having a soldier go the farthest in Picketts Charge. Also we supplied the Rebs. with i believe 1/4 of the entire troops during the war. Last but not least our states nickname which originated from the Civil War.
and thats my unbiased opinion.

The actual USMA is in NY.....all the government spensored academies, USNA, USMA, USCGA, USAFA and the Merchant Marine Academy are in the north or west. I am not knocking VMI, it is one of the best.

Everyone thinks it was white guys in the Alamo, but there were Mexicans too, not many but they were there.

Although the actual defeat of the Mexicans at San Jacinto, was won by Texans. They caught Santa Anna with his pants around his ankles.
