I’m Against It – How About You?

A couple of days ago, I published a post about a  city council agenda item, a resolution, that may appear on the next Semmes City Council agenda, July 16, 2019. I say “may” because the Mayor said the resolution is “under consideration.” I think someone is tiptoeing around the mine field. I would like for you to know something about this resolution and let me know your thoughts. During the last council work session, I stood alone – voting no for approving the resolution.

Crouch Down And Lick The Hands Which Feed You

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”

Samuel Adams

It Happened in Alabama on July 4th 1861

On July 4th, 1861, Representatives of Winston County met at Looney’s Tavern and drafted a declaration demanding that the “Free State of Winston” be left out of the Civil War. Winston County, located in an area unsuitable to plantation agriculture, most of the county’s population supported the Union and desired to remain neutral. While the county never attempted secession, it served as a gathering point for Unionists avoiding the draft and Confederate deserters, and many of its residents joined the Union army. Today, a statue of a Civil War soldier, half Union and half Confederate, stands in front of the county courthouse in Double Springs.
