Thank you sir. As I remember the Court House has bars on all windows and doors. About 2130 the fat Rebels will be loaded with foodstuffs and punch. General Riggs, Roubaud, and other Union personnel will conduct the trials on the spot. We can send them North on the Cairo, parked outside. All family and other non-combatants will be set free. Man, what a party.

As usual some uppity Yankee with his pipe dreaming about sending some fine Rebel officers off to who knows were after some trumped up trials [:(!]. They are the ones who invaded the South with their War of Northern Aggression. Come down here uninvited and disrupt our Christmas Ball. Anyway Merry Christmas to all of the fine Officers of the Confederacy, even to ya'll Gen Danner and the rest of the Northern Hordes [:D] <SALUTE> General Danner Suh, you don't PARK a ship, the term used is either docked or moored and how about you using the Sultana instead

Okay, so is this a virtual dance, or are you guys seriously planning a real life get together for some club members, which I think is cool, and if so y'all have fun.[;)]
