Sky interrupted


Somewhere on Monroe.

Good article: Camp Butler also home to Confederate soldiers.

His military career didn’t have a promising start. Part of the 30th Tennessee Infantry, Harper was captured at Fort Donelson, Tenn., in February 1862 and shipped to Camp Butler outside of Springfield as a prisoner of war.
Foreshadowing his later calling, Harper didn’t stick around long. He escaped the less-than-secure encampment and may have walked home to Tennessee.

Sarah came to town this morning. Don't read the comments on that article unless you need to throw up. Hey, I'm not a fan, but the vileness from both sides is despicable. That's not political discourse. (Update: The comments got a little better after I wrote this.)

I've been listening to Gimme Shelter by Playing for Change on repeat all weekend, thanks to Mr. Noded. Sometimes someone covers a song better than the original. This is one of those. Buy it. Feel it. Live it.

One more thing: Bolivia Bridge over the Sangamon River. (More info.)
