Civil War Beard

Posted on: March 28th, 2012

I had reason to be in South Carolina for business entirely unrelated to the Republican primary, but I always welcome a healthy dose ofhullabaloo. The locals were incredibly receptive to this Yankee, many commenting on the fullness and quality of my beard. I was approached by a group of Civil War re-enactment actors who said that I looked perfect for the part of an artillery man. After sharing a story about my cats’ love of Southern rock, however, it was decided I would be best suited as a member of the regimental string band. (As long as I get to wear a uniform, I’m happy.)

And that, dear friends, is what led to yours truly spending the duration of my return flight downloading chord charts for classic marching ditties. Thank goodness for Gogo. See you next month for the Battle of Charleston!
