Re: Harlem Hellfighters/campbell posting
In Response To: Re: Harlem Hellfighters ()
After a conversation with Tony Dorty this morning, I need to clear up some confusion about my Sunday posting. Those who have read it may indeed wonder where it's coming from....and either think I'm crazy or just off the wall.
It is actually a response to an email from Mr. Philpot which makes several careless remarks and refers to some hoary myth as fact.(Buffalo soldiers as recipients of worst horses, equipment, etc.) (see references to his letter in Tony Powell's messages) Because a number of us also email back and forth frequently- it got a little confusing, and it wasn't until Tony D. really analyzed it we realized where the problem was. Neither one of us really realized it-he responded via email to a large group, and since I had gotten several messages referring to it, answered on the board.
Please excuse the error, and my apologies to others who may have thought I was referring to the leafshaker posting. This is one of those OOOPS! that needs to be clarified. Shooting from the hip in this case, sent the bullet through the holster and into my foot, sorry!
