History Lesson!

Here's a bit of Civil War trivia for you History buffs:

Did you know that the reason the Confederate soldiers were going to Gettysburg was because they were in search of shoes? And that in search of their 3 inch strappy mules manly work boots, they spotted the Union soldiers and all hell broke loose?

Shoes: in ur Gettysburg, causing ur bloodiest battle in United States history.

Yes, that is a screen cap from my very own personal copy of Marie Antoinette. It's become one of my favorite sources of mindless entertainment (and I found that if you watch it in French, Kiki Dunst is much less annoying). Oh how times have changed.
