Using General William Sherman’s 1864–65 military march through Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina during the American Civil War, this paper studies the effect of capital destruction on medium and long-run local economic activity, and the role of financial markets in the recovery process. We match an 1865 US War Department map of Sherman’s march to county-level demographic, agricultural, and manufacturing data from the 1850–1920 US Censuses. We show that the capital destruction induced by the March led to a large contraction in agricultural investment, farming asset prices, and manufacturing activity. Elements of the decline in agriculture persisted through 1920. Using information on local banks and access to credit, we argue that the underdevelopment of financial markets played a role in weakening the recovery.
BEFORE considering the testimony as to Lincoln’s moral and religious character that is furnished by the two intimate friends of his whole lifetime, Ward H. Lamon and William H. Herndon, readers should examine carefully what is told of them in the Appendix under their names, in order to see the extraordinary conclusiveness of their testimony. Besides this, the reader will find proof there that when no one of the many distinguished eulogists of Lincoln had ventured to try to controvert or even to contradict what Lamon and Herndon call their “revelations” and “ghastly exposures” about Lincoln, although Lamon’s book was published as long ago as 1872 and Herndon’s as long ago as 1888, defenders of Lincoln were reduced to the strait of publishing as late as the years 1892 and 1895 two books with titles similar to the genuine books of Lamon and Herndon, which new books make no reference to the existence of the earlier books, contain the
frank avowals of Lamon and Herndon that they mean to tell all the gravest faults of their hero along with his virtues and omit the “revelations” and “ghastly exposures.”
IO should be viewed as an element of combat power, focused when and where it best supports the operation. As with other elements of combat power, there is no universal formula for the application of IO. Mission, enemy, terrain and weather, troops and support available-time available, and civil considerations are the major determinants. The purpose of IO is to achieve and maintain information superiority or advantage over the adversary at a particular time and place. To achieve an information advantage, an SF unit must understand the characteristics of the information environment in its operational area. The unit must also understand how adversary and third-party organizations use information to achieve their objectives.
The Director opened a door. They were in a large bare room, very bright and sunny; for the whole of the southern wall was a single window. Half a dozen nurses, trouser-ed and jacketed in the regulation white viscose-linen uniform, their hair aseptically hidden under white caps, were engaged in setting out bowls of roses in a long row across the floor. Big bowls, packed tight with blossom. Thousands of petals, ripe blown and silkily smooth, like the cheeks of innumerable little cherubs, but of cherubs, in that bright light, not exclusively pink and Aryan, but also luminously Chinese, also Mexican, also apoplectic with too much blowing of celestial trumpets, also pale as death, pale with the posthumous whiteness of marble.
I have my loins girded with the truth, which is the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit of incredible lasting life of great peace and joy to the fullest in our Lord Jesus Christ. I put on the breastplate of righteousness in God and His perfect will, which is love and peace. I shod my feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace and I will walk with God of Heaven rejoicing through time forever. I put on the shield of faith, wherewith I shall be protected from all the fiery darts of the evil one. I put on the helmet of salvation, which is the precious blood of Jesus Christ. I put on the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God and the truths I know of the Holy truth in flaming fire.
Have you ever wondered if America is in the Bible and who the people called Israelites are today? America has been very blessed with vast water ways, rivers, creeks, mountains, plains, trees and resources flowing with milk and honey.
