One thought on “And Life Goes On

  1. Hi Budd,

    Don’t mean to make too much of a minor point in your fine April column, but I seriously doubt the two “surviving Civil War vets” you saw on Johnny Carson in the early 60’s were genuiine. It has been pretty well substantiated that those individuals you saw were in actually in early childhood when the war ended in 1865. I believe the last authentically documented vet (a Confederate) died in 1959.
