Its been all over the web, newspapers and television, and we have written much about it on our blog. At 6:45 this morning, reenactors fired a mortar toward Fort Sumter to commemorate the start of “Mr. Lincoln’s War,” 150 years ago today, as hard as that is to believe.
Hundreds, maybe thousands, of people were on hand, even some friends from Montgomery, who left at 3:45 this morning to arrive in time for this symbolic occasion. We will never agree with everyone about the War, but we will also not forget. Our ancestors did what they thought was right, at their time and place and space in history and we honor them for it, even though we decry the loss of 600,000 lives.
Wars and rumors of wars…they will persist until Christ comes again. As it says in the Book of Revelation in The Greatest Book, “Even so Lord Jesus, come quickly”!
