Southerners, Indians, and Sheridan

     "The officer smiled and shrugged, and the engineer from Georgia said, 'I guess Phil Sheridan hates Indians about as much as he hates Southerners.'
     Grierson made a derisive sound. 'No offense, Lieutenant,' he said softly, 'but I served with that son of a bitch, and I got no use for the man.' "

Back Where a Friend Is a Friend

"Ridin' the range once more,
toatin'  my ol' .44;
where we sleep out every night,
and the only law is Right--
back in the saddle again."

(Autry and Whitley)
