AYWalton: I was glad to be there, though.
alt: and I heard your questions.... Bernice on the excepted parishes in New Orleans & LA and your's on how did the EP affect those slaves of the 5 CT's in Indian Territory... both great questions
AYWalton: Also it was one of the last official events for Reginald Washington the archivist who retired this past week. glad you got to see that alt. I did not realize that they had turned their cameras in our direction.
alt: oh, okay on Mr. Washington
AYWalton: He was a bit emotional in his presentation, which when he seemed to stumble his voice actually reflecting his emotion.
alt: yeah, I told my wife those voices sound familiar and then we got a glimpse of y'all. LOL
AYWalton: lol that's funny! So glad that you caught it though!
alt: yes, he seemed nervous, now I understand he was filled with emotion.
AYWalton: And it was his last official act as an archivist and speaking at the release of that particular document.

AYWalton: howdy deannie! Happy New Year.
deannie: Hi Angela
Seventies: Let me see if I can find the link on cspan for the event.

alt: the thread is on B.J.'s FB page Selma. this guy was talking about the # of slaves in the northern states and about slavery 200 years before the CW.. I tried to point him to the UVA census browser and the fact that we weren't talking about chattel slavery in Colonial America.
Daviss: did you get a response back from him alt
alt: not yet Daviss
Daviss: Whats going on HistoryBuff?
Selma: What was his hypothesis
HistoryBuff: NOT much. Trying to build energy and stamina
Selma: Did you go to Blog Talk last night daviss
HistoryBuff: How about you, Daviss/
Daviss: I just peeped and hardly made a response
Daviss: No, I did not Selma.. The kids took me to eat out
alt: just came back from FB, this guy is ridiculous in his response LOL
Selma: Good for those kids...
Daviss: I said they took me selma lol lol
vkn: you got took lol
Selma: What is he saying alt
vkn: how ridiculous alt
Daviss: I think somehow my pocketbook was a little lighter when we left
Selma: I wonder how that happened Daviss... LOL
alt: here is his response " The point was concerning the moral consciousness of a people/area of the country. I realize that the "south" is the only area of the country that carries with it an identifying song "Dixie". This was written by Danial Emmett (from Ohio) and is used to attempt to marginalize southerners, and negate all contributions before and after a four year period in the mid 1800's. To even bring up slavery after 150 years really serves no positive end other than attempting to open a wound that should have healed years ago. A people should stand on their own merits and not seek excuses for any perceived shortcomings. The New York draft riots of 1863 would tend to indicate that not all northerners were of the same mindset. The killing of 50,000 southern civilians during the war wasn't a very moral act either.
Daviss: oh listen to him....
alt: he's on another tangent ... do I have something for him LOL LOL
Daviss: hahahahaha alt
vkn: moral in a sentence usually kills the other words i say
vkn: How many years is it that we discuss the crucifixion etc put him on ignore I say Alt
alt: using that paralell (sp) would make too much sense vkn.
vkn: wb deannie
Daviss: might get him to learn something vkn lol wb deannie mabe get him to scurry and look through some history books lol lol
Selma: I don't see where his first comment was?
vkn: HistoryBuff what is wearing your energy down if I may askand what is the solution
alt: you have to go to B/J. page and read the whole thread Selma to get the gist of the conversation.
Daviss: take care of yourself Historybuff
alt: the guy is strong in his beliefs Selma and you can't kick him for his convictions .. I only argue with his conclusions.
HistoryBuff: Thnx Daviss & Vkn.
Selma: Congress is counting the electoral votes..
alt: I hope Pres Obama is re-elected LOL LOL
vkn: not funny lol
alt: I know vkn, sorry bout that
Selma: Well folks..think it is nap time
Daviss: ok Selma take care
alt: I'm almost ashamed to say that MY congressman was re-elected as Speaker of the House for the U.S. congress
Daviss: I wish I could go back.. I have been up since about 3 30
alt: oh my Daviss
