Hell, some people today can’t even grasp how it was in the 1970’s, everything is through a narrow lens that doesn’t consider context.The thing we always fail to address in these conversations is that it is not 1860 and we are not from 1860.
We don't seem to be able to grasp the accepted norms of the time.
I know much about my great grandfather, as the journal he wrote in every morning survived. He was a great man who lived a life I can't begin to imagine.
If the truth were known, I'm fairly certain that if I lived in his time I would think as he thought and he lived today, he would think much as I think.
I think it's incredibly important to not lose sight of that fact.
