2020 Election, Abraham Lincoln, Confederate Army General P.G.T. Beauregard, Donald J. Trump, First Battle of Bull Run, Joseph R. Biden, Lies, Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address, Reality, Thomas Jefferson, Union General Irvin McDonnell, US Civil War, Victory
The first battle of the US Civil war occurred on July 21, 1861 near Manassas, Virginia and it was a resounding victory for the army of the Confederacy.
The first Battle of Bull Run saw Union General Irvin McDonnell march 42 kilometers/25 miles from Washington, D.C. to seize the Confederate capital of Richmond, Virginia only to be thwarted and defeated by the forces led by Confederate Army General P.G.T. Beauregard.
Victory went to the rebels who knew they would win the war just as Trumpublicans knew from early election results that Donald J. Trump was the absolute winner in the 2020 election. How did they know? Because they were ahead in the beginning.
This traitorous rebel logic is exactly what most ails America, the unwavering belief in our own “realities” that have nary a mooring to the real world. The battle for the White House and the Civil War had many fronts and just as the Civil War divided our nation the ongoing battle between how the USA should proceed in our call for , “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,” will also continue to be hard fought.
I pray that just as equality was advanced with Union victory so too will it stride forward with a Biden Presidency and that 2021 will usher in an era where Abraham Lincoln’s Second Inaugural address which he concluded by saying, “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations,” will lead us to a far greater America than we have ever seen before.
