Re: February 2020 Handgrenade

A caveat, almost always, without access to original documets, papers, etc., some of this commentary may be very pedestrian. Yet, at the time of Korea, the Los Angeles Examiner newspaper, one original public source, published daily during Korean War, a peninsula map of Korea, showing the movement of front line divided between Communist an Allied forces.

Re: X-Post: MiWSR: Woods on Finkelman and Kennon, eds., "Civil War Congress and the Creation of Modern America: A Revolution on the Home Front"

One of the more telling and long lasting of Lincoln's Civil War modernizations was the 'land grant' policy and practice which created and has sustained developments and histories to educational institutions of higher earning. Land grant colleges in the West contributed mightily to development and modernizing the future educational needs of America.
