Over 60,000 deaths have occurred in Syria since the first and peaceful protests against President Assad began. In addition, Turkey and other neighboring countries, are overfilling with fleeing refugee's who do not want to die in Syria.
Hundreds of thousands of Syrian's have fled the bloodbath in Syria. Children lay dead on the Syrian's streets, women are being raped, and men are being tortured by the Assad regime.
During the previous Battle of Aiken re-enactments the dance has been placed under the pavilion with uneven ground and nothing to block the wind. It makes for a cold and painful night of dancing.
I would like to make everyone aware of a disease/disorder that most people do not even know about unless they are around some one who has it or there are an educated medical professional. Many people are misdiagnosed and are going through terrible times because they might not even know what they have. It is reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), and affects the sympathetic nervous system. It can make people unable to do anything and live every second of every day in terrible pain. The disease can be traced back to the civil war. I myself have had it since was age 11 and that was just when i was finally diagnosed over at Stanford University. Here in my area they wanted to cut my nerves leading to my leg. I ask everyone to do some research and spread the knowlege and get programs and support groups going.
We the undersigned do strongly believe that the History Channel(TM) and A&E(TM) Cable Networks have betrayed the trust of Civil War Living Historians in the February 19th airing on the History Channel of "The Unfinished Civil War."
We believe that Civil War Reenactors and Living Historians were grossly misrepresented and used as unwitting pawns in the South Carolina Confederate Flag Debate. The History Channel absurdly represents the reenacting community as being entirely composed of obese, racist, traitorous, uniformed, flag-waving malcontents with little regard for real history. In the "Unfinished Civil War" The History Channel has chosen to rewrite history rather then report it.
