Back To England, Ye Bloody Lobsterbacks!

Your Patriot Blogmaster charging a few redcoats at the Battle of Cowpens...

...and running the Yankees back to Ohio.

This is but a taste of the richness of this past weekend's American Heritage Festival in Queen Creek. More words and pictures are coming, I assure you. Enjoy Thanksgiving with your families, and I'll have more to come sometime after the Big Feast and before Christmas.

In the meantime, reflect on these words from President Abraham Lincoln, spoken during his second inaugural address in 1865:
With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.
Many of you will agree Lincoln's sentiments of 1865 are germane to 2007 as well.
