Myers at Manskers

Those of you watching mindless sitcom reruns on Thursday night missed a great opportunity to learn about the War of 1812 at Manskers' Station.   Yes, we know it was a school night, but was well worth not only the drive but the loss of sleep to hear Myers Brown talk about Andrew Jackson, the regular army and the militia during the War of 1812.  The photo in the upper left is a military uniform of the regular army.  The photo in the upper right is what might have been worn by the militia from Tennessee.

All in all a great presentation and not one "and uh" in the whole 60 minutes!
