a fool in the forest

Epigraphs

  • A fool, a fool! I met a fool i' the
        forest,
    A motley fool; a miserable world!
    As I do live by food, I met a fool
    Who laid him down and bask'd him
        in the sun,
    And rail'd on Lady Fortune in good
        terms,
    In good set terms and yet a motley
        fool.

    As You Like It,
    Act II, Scene 7

    L'homme y passe à travers des
        forêts de symboles
    Qui l'observent avec des regards
        familiers.

    Les Fleurs du Mal,
    “Correspondances”

    [T]here is almost no subject-matter, and what little one can disentangle is foolish....
    One would call the style verbose, except that by definition verbosity is the use of words in excess of the occasion, and there seems to be no occasion.

    Yvor Winters,
    Forms of Discovery, Ch. 7

    I love finding my ancestors that fought in the War of Northern Aggression. I have my gggrandfather's Confederate Pension papers that give me a wealth of information about his service.

    Are you familiar with the Parks website for Civil War Soldiers:

    Very good site for research

    Mr. Wallace,
    Found you on a search for references to 1st Eastern Shore MD Infantry, and other Civil War units who were likely camped in Cambridge, MD. Since you're descended from Col. Wallace, perhaps you have some direct knowledge? I'm attempting to verify the locations of one or more training camps near Cambridge, MD, hometown of Col. Wallace. Would appreciate any insight you might have.
    Thanks
    Kim

    I WAS NOT AWARE OF ANY OTHER DESCENDANTS OF COLONEL JAMES WaLLACE. I AM JAMES WALLACE BRYAN JR. MY GRAND FATHER WAS DARCY PATTISON BRYAN WHO MARRIED NANNIE WALLACE, ONE OF THREE WALLACE DAUGHTERS. ONE WAS MYRA PHELPS DAWSON, THE OTHER WAS ELIZABETH WALLACE MARRIED TO SAMUEL L.GRAHAM. I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO GET IN TOUCH WITH ANY OTHER DESCENDANTS OF COLONEL JAMES WALLACE. KINDEST REGARDS, JAMES W, BRYAN JR.
