Okay, the last time I made a comment, it seemed like everyone had their turn kicking the wheels of my wagon. So, with the courtesy of a rebuttal, I would like to clarify my position. Testicular fortitude is not unthinking, hot-tempered, testosterone bravado. In layman's terms, it's having the "Balls" to self motivate a man to action under extreme circumstances, sometimes self-preservation. This certainly could of applied to the McLaury Brothers. I would surely think all war veterans have this trait, myself included. Because without it, there would be no heroes. And in all fairness, there is absolutely no correlation between pulling a gun on a Marshall in 1881 and doing the same today. The mindset of the beaten down South after the Civil War and living under forced Reconstruction is non compatible with today's America. After all, it was the Wild West.
