Gettysburg, Apes, Lee, and Siblings (oh, my!)

(Now, there's a title!)

I have some very weird siblings.  :D  If you haven't already gathered that, well there you have it.  :D  Come on, when they talk about their pet flies or when the worst insult they can come up with is calling someone an Eco-terrorist, you know they are weird.  

But when they walk around quoting Pickett about apes and Lee, you really know they've gone off the deep end.  lol  For the past couple weeks my younger siblings favorite quote (rather quotes) has been...

Major General George E. Pickett: Sirs, perhaps there are those among you who believe you are descended from a ape.  I suppose there may even be those among you who believe that I am descended from a ape.  But I challenge the man to step forward who believes that General Robert E. Lee is descended from a ape.

James L. Kemper: Hear, hear!

Brig. Gen. Richard B. Garnett: Not likely.
