The War Still Isn't Over

In contrast to our illustrious executive chef, Lee, I'm born a Yankee, and therefore inclined to consider the Civil War to have been over for awhile (like for over a century). But, perhaps I'm wrong after all. It's at least not over in Chester, Virginia.


The American Civil War has claimed another casualty. Sam White, a memorabilia collector, found a Civil War-era shell, took it to his Virginia home and it detonated in his driveway.

Hear the full story on NPR.

No word yet on Mr. White's political sympathies, or whether it was a Union or Confederate shell. So, it's still not certain whether this was a combat casualty or a friendly-fire accident.
