AN OVERWHELMING SENSE THAT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS CORRUPT AND SELF ABSORBED HAS BEEN APPARENT THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRIES EXISTENCE.
Democracy is based on the idea that having two separate parties that formed through difference of opinion can come together and compromise to some form of a medium.
Unfortunately, the Democratic Party seems to have forgotten the core principal surrounding America’s Democracy.
Recent liberal actions in the wake of Republican President Trump’s election have been horrific and do not display what the country was founded on.
The Democratic Party has displayed nothing but petulant behavior after their candidate lost fair and square.
One man was wise beyond his years and knew that the problems he witnessed would continue and decided to leave a grave message in the most ironic way imaginable.
Nathaniel Grigsby was born on October 11, 1811. He was a Civil War veteran, a 2nd Lieut., of Company G, 10th Indiana Cavalry. He was a farmer.
He was also a friend of Abraham Lincoln.
In 1860, he was living in Norborne. He wrote to Lincoln and received an appointment as Republican Precinct Committee Man. He placed Lincoln’s name on the 1860 ballot. All of Natty’s neighbors were Southern sympathizers. He had been talking about electing Lincoln for president in town. One morning at about 2 or 3 a.m. a neighbor rode up and told Natty not to light any lights. The neighbor wanted to warn him that his neighbors were planning to murder him and if he wanted to live he should be on his way.
After the warning, Natty moved back to Spencer Co., IN where he and four of his five sons enlisted in Company C 10th IN Cavalry (Richmond Davis did not enlist). Natty was named 2nd Lieutenant. ~Authentic Campaigner
In 1890, Mr. Grigsby passed away in Kansas. However, he left a brilliant warning to future generations inscribed on his tombstone.
My husband’s 6th great-grandfather, John Grigsby, sailed to Virginia in 1662, earning the Captain of the ship in which he sailed, 50 acres of Virginia land. The Grigsby family became prosperous land owners and remained in Virginia for generations.
A member of one of the families that remained in Indiana was Aaron Grigsby, whose claim to fame was his marriage to Sarah Lincoln, sister to the future President. They wed in 1826, but sadly within 18 months, Sarah died in childbirth. Abraham felt that Aaron failed to get a doctor in time and blamed him for Sarah’s death.
Nathaniel Grigsby was Aaron Grigsby’s brother, a good friend of Abraham Lincoln who attended school with him. By 1860, Nathaniel had moved to Missouri where he wrote to Lincoln requesting to be named: Republican Precinct Committee Man. Continue reading here
