Sissification

From a reader: “[W]hen you were speaking of the Battle of Horseshoe Bend,

you said ‘…I suppose that this battle is nowadays taught to our

children…’ Sadly, this is as wrong as it gets. Our children are not

taught much about battles anymore, and if they are it is only to demonstrate

America’s aggressive, evil, and bloody past. Even at the college level you

will be hard-pressed to find a curriculum that is not too liberal to offer a

course that would mention the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. Our kids are

fortunate if they hear about the Battle of Midway sometime during high

school before they get to college and catch it on the History Channel while

they are cutting class.” Say it ain’t so… but I suspect it is.
