    What's really funny was there was no National guard till at least 100 years after the BOR was written.

    Typical leftist, PoS history revisionist peddling faux Fudd credentials. He's either ignorant and doesen't know his history or he knows it very well and is purposely lying. Either way he is an enemy and needs to be treated as such.

    The National Guard system was created after the Civil War to ensure that the Federal government and not the States controlled the military forces. Pretty hard for a State to wage war on the Fed when their military forces all answer to and are equipped by the Federal government. Just part of the slow subjugation of the States to the Fed.

    All else being worthy of discussion, I do believe that's "after the Civil War" :animlol:

    That is incredibly well written. It maybe the best, most concise statement on the Second that I've seen.

    Yeah. Thirty-nine years after the CW, after the so-called "Indian Wars" and the Spanish-American War.

    And I bet it was really a way to get a better grip on the Teddy Roosevelt/Rough Rider types and end semi-private volunteer regiments from forming and horning in on the glory of the standing professional military.

    You can't chalk up any political brownie points if you as a professional commanding officer gets upstaged by a wild, rowdy upstart volunteer whom you have no real control over. :rofl:
