So, once upon a time on the old forums of yore, there were about four or five topics called "Useless Facts" topics, which I always thought were pretty cool,
so I thought I would resurrect the trend as the "Interesting Facts Topic"!
So basically, just post interesting facts here and see how things go!
You probably know that on the second day at the Battle of Gettysburg, Col. Joshua Chamberlain lead his Maine Regiment a bayonet charge down the hill right into an Alabama Regiment,
routing them, saving the battle and the entire Union cause. What you might not have known is that his Maine regiment was from a small town 400 miles from Gettysburg and that the
men they capture were from a town also 400 miles from Gettysburg. An almost completely straight 800 mile line can be drawn from one town to the other, with Gettysburg being
right in the middle.
Yeesh, sorry it was kind of long, but anyway go post way!
