The War of Northern Aggression

I was telling my father that I was planning on spending a few days in Northwest Arkansas visiting a dear woman (who is now my wife), when he mentioned that I should take her to the battle place of Pea Ridge. Apparently, Pea Ridge,  was an important battle site during the war of Northern Aggression.

I admitted to my father that in all the hours I have spoken to the woman in question, that I had not once broached the topic of the war of Northern Aggression. He immediately responded:

“Well, boy! What are you waiting for. You have to get these things on the table and get them there quickly!”

We both had a good laugh.
