Southern Appeal has named me a member of the First Brigade. I'm sure he is refering to the Virginian First Brigade commanded by General Jackson. It is a great honor to be mentioned with such men. Unfortunately, it is an honor I must decline.
My heart, now and forever, belongs to the 1st Kentucky (Orphan) Brigade.
I guess he can leave me listed as 1st Brigade, just as long as we all realize which 1st Brigade he's refering to in my case.1
1 For those of you who are Yankees or from territories west of Texas don't even try to figure out why two Southern Gentlemen would quibble over such a point, even in jest. It's a Southern thing - you wouldn't understand (and if you try too hard your head might explode).
