For ****** sake. Everyone knows that in an emergency you don't bother with the shot, just fire the ramrod.

Reminded me of this anecdote about Abraham Lincoln. Long, but interesting read.

Abraham Lincoln once remarked about his notorious duel with James Shields, "If all the good things I have ever done are remembered as long and as well as my scrape with Shields, it is plain I shall not be forgotten." The duel, however, has been almost completely forgotten, although it had far-reaching effects on Lincoln; he learned a great deal from the experience.

Historians believe that Lincoln's future wife, Mary Todd, or even Lincoln himself wrote the letters. Even though they were not the only two suspects, Lincoln received the blame, which resulted in Shields challenging him to a duel. Dueling was illegal in Illinois under a law of 1839, but the duel occurred anyway. Since Shields had challenged Lincoln, the privilege of selecting the terms of the duel belonged to Lincoln. Lincoln selected the Broad Sword as the weapon for the duel, which was to take place about three miles from Alton, Illinois, on the opposite side of the Mississippi River, in Missouri.

On September 22, 1842, both parties crossed the river and attempted to negotiate a settlement of the two gentlemen's differences; however, James Shields's quick temper caused him to refuse the compromise. As the duel began, Shields became aware that Lincoln outmatched him with his long reach. This became apparent to everyone when Lincoln reached far overhead and cut off a willow branch with one quick stroke. Shields's precarious position became obvious to him, thus causing him to back down and make peace with Lincoln. From this point, Lincoln and Shields are said to have had a friendly relationship.


Abraham Lincoln was a bad mother ****** .
