Move me on



Exit 2013. Enter 2014. And that's about all we have to say about that.

* Fascinating: All in the Family:

An old adage states, “You can pick your friends, but not your relatives.” The truth of this maxim was brought home to Abraham and Mary Lincoln when Mary’s half sister, Emilie Todd Helm, visited the White House in late 1863.
Emilie was widowed on Sept. 20, 1863, when her husband, a Confederate brigadier general named Benjamin Hardin Helm, was killed in the Battle of Chickamauga. At the beginning of the war, Lincoln had offered Helm, whom he viewed more as a brother than an in-law, an officer’s rank in the Union Army, but the Kentuckian Helm opted to raise a regiment for the Confederacy instead.

* Cardinals.

* To any black square....
