Most Americans know that fuel prices will rise again and want to insulate themselves from that risk as much as possible. American consumers have been trading in their gas-guzzling trucks and full-sized cars for smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles — or, at least that’s the conventional wisdom. In fact, while the small car segment of the market has gained some momentum, though, U.S. motorists have remained stubbornly attached to their pickups, SUVs and larger passenger cars. So can a new generation of compact and subcompact alternatives move the needle?
The real world is, if you want to have a car, you have to pay much money for fuel. Therefore, concentrating on building smaller and more efficent cars has been the wave of the future for some time now, but it has been a hard transfer due to the fact that buyers still need a bigger cars for larges families or just to have a large car in case they need it. With gas prices groing all the time and the economic hardship that has hit everyone, people are reconsedering buying smallers cars to save on gas. You can never really get rid of large trucks or SUV’s, because someone is allways going to buy one. Most people have come to the rationatily that we can deal with smaller SUV’s or crossover that get getter gas mileage or even Hybrids SUV’s are a good choice, but expencive. Ford Motor reallly should concentrate more of theis energy on alternative gas cars as well. We need to revamp the production lines and start producing a new line of automobiles. To keep track of the new line of cars we need to get a total count of how many we are going to make in a given year and then see what ends ups selling at the en of the…...

Massacre of Fort Pillow

...The Massacre at Fort Pillow: Holding Nathan Bedford Forrest Accountable Ned Bishop United States History II Professor Citro March 22, XXXX Title of paper. Writer’s name. Title of course, instructor’s name, and date. Source: Diana Hacker (Boston: Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2004). 67 Bishop 2 Although Northern newspapers of the time no doubt exaggerated some of the Confederate atrocities at Fort Pillow, most modern sources agree that a massacre of Union troops took place there on April 12, 1864. It seems clear that Union soldiers, particularly black soldiers, were killed after they had stopped fighting or had surrendered or were being held prisoner. Less clear is the role played by Major General Nathan Bedford Forrest in leading his troops. Although we will never know whether Forrest directly ordered the massacre, evidence suggests that he was responsible for it. Fort Pillow, Tennessee, which sat on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, had been held by the Union for two years. It was garrisoned by 580 men, 292 of them from the Sixth United States Colored Heavy and Light Cavalry, 285 from the white Thirteenth Tennessee Cavalry. Nathan Bedford Forrest’s troops numbered about 1,500 men.1 The Confederates attacked Fort Pillow on April 12, 1864, and had virtually surrounded the fort by the time Forrest arrived on the battlefield.

The Civil War

...Confederate warships bombarded Union soldiers at Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861. The war was fought in thousands of different places, from southern Pennsylvania to Texas; from New Mexico to Florida Cost. The majority of the fighting took place in the state of Virginia and Tennessee. The Civil was also contested on the Atlantic Ocean as far off as the Coast of France, the Gulf of Mexico and the brown water of the Mississippi River and its tributaries. After the first shots at Fort Sumter the Americans knew that this was the brink of the Civil War. By this time South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Texas had quit the Union and together they formed the new Confederate States of America. Although the shots were fired on Fort Sumter the Confederates did not win. The confederates demanded Fort Sumter, but the United States government refused to give it up. In the early morning blackness of April 12, 1862 three Confederate officers on General Beauregard’s staff rowed to the harbor stepping ashore at Fort Sumter. One of the Confederate officers scribbled a note telling the Union that one hour from this time they would open fire. The note read, “We have the honor to notify you that he, General Beauregard, will open fire on Fort Sumter in one hour from this time. Just like the note stated at one hour pass the time four thirty A.M. to be exact confederate Lieutenant Henry S. Farley jerked the lanyard of a cannon at Fort Johnson on James Island.

Should my demand be refused, I cannot be responsible for the fate of your command.”2 Union Major William Bradford, who had replaced Major Booth, killed......

Fort Pillow

...000 rebels under the command of Nathan Bedford Forrest overran Fort Pillow, a former Confederate stronghold situated on a bluff on the Tennessee bank of the Mississippi, some 40 miles north of Memphis. The garrison consisted of about 600 Union soldiers, roughly evenly divided between runaway slaves-turned-artillerists from nearby Tennessee communities and white Southern Unionist cavalry mostly from East Tennessee. Under a flag of truce which his men violated by creeping up on the fort, Forrest demanded the garrison’s surrender, threatening that if it refused he would not be responsible for the actions of his men. Believing Forrest was bluffing, Bradford refused, whereupon the Confederates swarmed over the parapet.

KB: This is great to show K: Rebels, Confederates Precisely three years after the Civil War began, one of the cruelest deeds in the annals of warfare occurred at Fort Pillow, forty miles north of Memphis, Tennessee, on the bank of the Mississippi River, when both black troops of the 6th US Colored Artillery and white troops of the 13th Tennessee Union Cavalry were murdered in cold blood. General Nathan Forrest considered a slave in uniform with a gun a direct challenge and threat to the way of life in the South, a situation that could never be tolerated. At Fort Pillow, Forrest would take the "no quarter to Union Negro......

Battle of Fort Pillow

...north of Memphis, Tennessee separated from the Mississippi River by bluffs and a narrow ravine, was originally a Confederate fort. The base structure was crude earth but upon being occupied by Union forces had been enlarged. On the morning of April 12th, 1864 Confederate forces led by General N.B. Forrest, a former slave trader, moved in on the fort. After swiftly gaining the advantageous high ground surrounding the fort, Confederate sharpshooters proceeded to pick off Union troops while remaining out of reach of the nearby gunboat, the New Era. Included in the initial casualties was Major Lionel Booth, commander of the Union force. The Confederate forces continued a successful press and by early afternoon General Forrest sent notice for an unconditional surrender to Major William Bradford. The request was refused and what ensued was a bloodbath with particular care and cruelty taken to exterminate as many African Americans as possible long after Union troops had surrendered. Though exact numbers remain elusive to this day, the estimation is that the fort contained nearly 600 Union troops with roughly half that number being African American. Of the total losses, the black troops were decimated to less than a quarter of their original number. This count does not include civilian casualties of African American women and children that were also at the fort.# While the sheer number of dead compared with the timeline of events would seem to indicate and obvious needless......

I dressed myself the night before, knowing all I had to do was get in the car and go. Halfway dragging myself down the hall, I am welcomed by the slobbery faces of 2 boxers’ pouncing and falling everywhere fighting for a chance to say good morning. I massage my fingers through their course hair and kiss them goodbye on the forehead. Just like that we are on the road.

...of sales ninja Christopher Knox (known as “Fort” to his colleagues, because of his golden touch), SFS would still be trying to dent Armadillo’s famously resistant armor. And now, to Jeremy’s amazement, human resources vice president Samantha Williams was informing him that she wanted to reprimand Knox for a breach of the SFS code of ethics. “If ‘brilliant’ is a synonym for ‘devious,’ maybe so,” said Sam, eyebrows raised. Sam was Jeremy’s friend and frequent ally, having helped him push through a reorganization of the sales force, including new incentive and commission structures. But she was also currently the chair of SFS’s ethics review board. “An ethics breach is an ethics breach. As our code states, ‘deceptive business practices’ are unethical. There have to be consequences. And you, of all people, should know that.” True enough, Jeremy thought. When he had arrived at SFS five years ago, on the heels of an embarrassing kickback scandal, Jeremy had been a driving force behind creating the corporate code of ethics. And now it was being wielded against his star sales animal, Fort Knox. How had it come to this? Daniel Vasconcellos “YOU’VE GOT TO One Tough Customer Six months earlier, regional sales manager Will Meyers had returned from yet another frustrating visit with Armadillo’s CFO, Dale Landry. “I just never get any closer,” he said with a sigh, collapsing into a booth with Jeremy and Fort, who were already digging into a late lunch...

Raju said “ok come let’s go”. They got up and started to move towards the fort meanwhile they heard the dangerous sounds of the lion and in other direction they heard the sounds of wild bear. Raju said to Santhu “lets walk slowly, they may hear our sound as the ears of the animals will be more sharper than the Humans” then they walked slowly and reached near the fort gate and stopped behind one of the tree as they saw a man was entering the fort. Later they went up to the gate but it was locked. Then Raju took his sword and inserted it in the lock and turned it towards right side. The door opened gently they entered inside suddenly the door shut itself automatically. Later Santhu asked “how did you get this idea” then Raju said “the person who entered the fort before us did exactly like this so, I too tried and it went successfully”.
