1. Good ol' Samuel.
He was quite the citizen of Ohio. Makes me feel all warm inside.

2. You forgot public service.
What the hell was President Wilson thinking, when he appointed a Baruch, a Wall broker, not a military expert, to help the U.S. gear up for WWI?

Another day, I am going to look a little further into Wilson, but I can only take so much in one morning,

3. In 1916 I would have voted Hughes
Had the Democrats (probably) not stole California Hughes would have been President. Wilson was a racist and Hughes was the choice of Teddy Roosevelt.
Also, had Hughes won it might have ended the Electoral College as Hughes got only about 40% of the popular vote

4. Probably a good choice. I would have to study up on it.
1916 was still close enough to 1893 that racists within the Democratic Party and its kissin cousin, Dixiecrats, would have been common.

Martin Luther King, Sr., for example, did not switch until JFK helped get his son out of jail.

Incredibly, Senator Brooke, the first African American Senator post Reconstruction era (Massachusetts, of course), claimed within the past few year that he had run as a Republican in 1965 without realizing that things had changed between the Parties since Lincoln. (If he was that out of touch, he shouldn't have been Senator of his high school, ffs.)

5. Oh, dear. That should have been 1863 (Emancipation), not 1893.
How come I never see these errors until after they post?

6. I completely missed it.
I would have been critical of you. We do not tolerate mistakes around here.

7. Of course not. That's why all my posts are so perfect.

:rofl:

Some mistakes that I make only reflect badly on my typing. But some mistakes that I make render it impossible for anyone to get what I am saying. I wish that I could avoid the latter.
