I do not believe every Red Coat was evil, as portrayed by Mel Gibson, although some obviously were, but that applies to both sides. The thing is, knowing how our ancestors battled each other in the past - or how yours did so against the Union - and even some cousins of mine I believe also live in the US, this should serve as a lesson to us to avoid further destructive wars - war just for the sake of war. Some are necessary from a certain point of view - but that is only because their always exist those who provoke war.
As for your original question, I am glad it was answered to your satisfaction, and that a missing part of your family's history can be filled in, because where we all come from is important to us. Members of my family had written a book on how they settled in Templeton, west of Christchurch here in New Zealand, from England, in , and it never ceases to be intruiging. Keep up the curiousity. The Russian. I am aware of the difference between the Old and New Styles of Calendars, with regard to the introduction of the Gregorian which we use now. When I entered the date 3 September into the Wolfram Mathematica website for finding out significances of dates in History and the future, I saw that this was given as a Sunday, being the Gregorian date for the Battle of Worcester.
Now I know that the 3rd of September was a Wednesday O. So my question is, have a lot of dates of old battles such as that been changed to what they would be now under the Gregorian Calendar, or did say the Battle of Worcester occur on what was to those who were actually there, Wednesday the 3rd of September, , which would have been a different day and date had England by then already adopted Gregoria, which they did not do for another years to the day, I think, or was it a different date, which would have been 3 September under the New Style?

My thought is that if September the Third is the New Style date, then the battle would have been fought on what was actually about August 23rd or so to those who were there at the time. Thank You all, that clears a lot of things up. What we want to know as historians amateur though I might be , is what happened to people then, when it happened to them - that is, the date THEY acknowledged at the time. Calculators should show a certain date is so many days ago, that it really is, taking into account the two major Calendar shifts.
I have studied this a bit and come up with perpetual calendars and adapted a formula to find the day a given date of history was, taking these things into account. I did this because most perpetual calendars generally tried to cover only the last years, perhaps deeming it more difficult to contend with the change overs.
I worked all that out eighteen years ago. All I was concerned about now was the idea that what I thought were the actual dates for battles and such for those then, may not be what we regard the date to be comparing it to now.
Thanks Again. I have heard of a philosopher who held that parents should be allowed to kill their children up to two years of age as a sort of post-birth abortion. Who is this philosopher, and where can we find these views espoused?
It is bad enough this practice is allowed at all, and now some want to extend it, to the point that even pro choice people would have to say that that is not on. Peter Singer 's book Practical Ethics features this argument.

The way I see it, if you're allowed to lock up a person for fifty years for killing his child, then you're also allowed to kill a child.
Vranak talk , 17 May I am not sure what his day to day prophetic responsibilities are as they are not articulated in the article. Also, there is no information regarding what prophetic acts he has carried out. As we attempt to describe Monson in the most encyclopedic not necessarily Mormon way, it is pertinent to understand his prophetic conduct and functioning through a global lens.

It used to be sometime much later in the year, I'm thinking December 1, but I'm not positive on that. I know that that would have prevented me from starting school till I was almost 6, even though I was already reading at the age of 4. I bet lots of them had zilch.

Nearly all of them are from Oxbridge, even the Labour ones, and the average tenure is less than three years. Meaning "brothers in the heart throughout life" or "brothers in the heart forever. This seems odd to me. Does anyon know whether there ever was an electronics engineer to which the book, A Canticle for Leibowitz refers? Or was it just a made-up name? Thus proslavery soldiers could construe their role as upholders of duly constituted authority against the invading northern rebel.
Resistance by force cannot be countenanced Wrote a Leavenworth editor, "Every man must place a guard around his house to protect his distressed wife and sleeping babes, and dare not pass beyond the rounds of that guard or [he will] be shot down in cold blood. To proslavery spokesmen, Northerners were "the foreign foe," committed to "the one idea of crushing us of the South as a people.
Averring freedom and their own moral superiority, Northerners were really a pack of evil hypocrites—"Oh! But these are the cardinal virtues in Abolitionism together with stealing. To proslavery settlers, Northerners were not devoted to "the welfare of the country" but "alone to the one idea, sickly sycophantic love for the nigger," which led them to steal him and set him free.
Underlying the ostensible purpose of destroying the institution of slavery raged northern white lust to couple with filthy black. Northerners came to Kansas not to increase the area of freedom but "for the express purpose of stealing, running off and hiding runaway negroes from Missouri [and] taking to their own bed and their own arms, a stinking negro wench.

In sum, Northerners sought to reverse the entire moral and social order, to enshrine the low and debase the high.
