The rather #dashing#gentleman in this photo taken around 1868, flanked by a cousin to the right and future wife to the left, is my 3rd great-granduncle, William Geiger Boyce (1845-1924). He was a farmer, a born-again #Christian, a father of 8 children (one of whom served and died in #WWI in #France) and an highly-esteemed, life-long resident of #Plattin, #Missouri.
He was also a #Confederate#Army veteran who served with "distinction" during the #CivilWar.
Given the utter #craziness afoot these days over anything related to that era, is one, upon learning of their own #familial history, supposed to:
A) Rend garments in self-flagellatory #hate...
B) Proceed to #destroy all archival records of such...
C) Irrationally project modern #judgement on past circumstances...
D) Approach with a #mature understanding of context in relation to distance and time?
Agree, especially since ego is so powerful. (Also note I'll no longer be using spoiler warnings for gotg2 as the digital release has been out for over a week). Dm your opinions to me and I'll post them anonymously!
While working down by the Capital Of Texas. Figured I would share a little history since the topic of statues is upon us. Center is good ole Abraham Lincoln and his men. Representing the civil war from 1861 to 1865. In working so can't lay out the entire history but if we look at what's happening now in comparison to then there are some similarities. Take some time and research #civilwar#texasstatecapital#theseparationofstates#theunion In order to understand the present we have to look at the past. (swipe left and zoom in)

➵ Anyway, this is for all my Stony shippers. Tbh, I kind of ship Stony, Stucky, and Steggy? I also ship Pepperony (that's such a cute ship name, I can't). So yeah. Lol.
