Question of the Week: 3/23-3/29/20

Many of us are staying home at this time out of necessity or precaution, so if you had to get quarantined for a couple weeks with a person from the Civil War era, who would you choose? Why?

  1. Easy, one of my great-great-great grandfathers that fought in the war. Why? Because I’ve got so many questions.

  2. Grant. When everyone around is in a state of panic, he would remain calm and patient. Lick em (Covid 19) tomorrow.

  3. My great-great-great uncle John Mclain, who spent 14 months in Andersonville as a,Union prisoner!

  4. Frederick Douglas. I can’t think of anyone more interesting. It would be interesting to see his reaction to the civil rights movement

  5. Being a Georgian, I would like to spend some time with John B Gordon, James Longstreet, and my ancestor, James M Denney (38th GA Co F), all having served with the Army of Northern Virginia.

  6. Ummm, who was considered the best looking gal of the Civil War era? She’ll be my choice!.

  7. Nathan Bedford Forrest. It’s easier to socially distance from someone if you are concerned about them actually running you through with a saber. Also, I think he could be depended upon to git thar fastest with the mostest when it comes to toilet paper.
