  • I know what people are referring to when they say American. No ****, nobody is that stupid.

    I'm saying it's not factual. Yeah, I know ahat they mean. Is it correct? No. Is it a big deal? Not really, but it IS wrong.

      This is an interesting argument. I say go for it.
      OF America


      Do you know what "of" means?

        His strategy worked, no?

        And Meade? Whatever you say, He took command of an army 3 days before Gettysburg and beat Lee. If anything, the mans underrated.

          Is there another country that uses the title America?

            Sorry, misread your statement. Thought it said "America is the name of our country". My fault for not wearing my glasses.

                No and so what? Lol that's what the founders wanted the name to be. And saying OF America doesn't mean you are the ONLY American country.

                So yeah, don't get your point.

                • I have no problem using the term American, just like European it is accurate. But those of us in the United States are not the only Americans.

                    hmm.... I think just Samoa.
                    wait do you mean in the actual name, or just "we're America."?

                    edit- btw, I meant that it's called American Samoa

                        And allowed him to flea back accross the Potomac.
                        Meade could have ended the war more than a year earlier and could have saved tens of thousands of lives if he had destroyed Lee's army when it was vulnerable.

                          See now that comparison is between Lee and Jackson. Who was Jordan? Who was Pippen?

                            We're the only ones that count.

                              gotta be honest....I didn't even put much thought into it.....I just thought Scottie Pippen was grossly underrated haha

                                I don't recall my civil war history very well, why did Meade allow the army to retreat back across the Potomac? It may have been the wrong decision, but I am sure he had his reasons.
