Nativism at home and expansion abroad excused just about any excess as you patriotic striving. Between the end of the civil War and the start of the Spanish-American War, whatever was good for America was more or less anything that somebody with a loud voice and a big stick said was good for America. By the early twentieth century, when doubleday was formally beatified as the first among baseballs saints, anything American was its own reward. The very language reeled from exposure to the unbridled, rapacious, and self-indulgent. Hired killers were regulators, when not peacemakers. Settling the west meant mass exterminations. Information was what the hearsts and Pulitzers could improvise for sale.
And yet, there are more grounds for blaming the war Between the States on doubleday than for crediting him as the inventor of baseball or for even tolerating that assertion as innocuous whimsy. At least the general was at Fort Sumter in south Carolina on the morning of April 12, 1861, was in charge of the Union batteries there, and did give the order to fire the northern shots in response to the confederate shelling that has generally. Later on, he was even a primary figure in the turning point battle of Gettysburg. The factual evidence ridiculing doubledays connection to baseball, seminal or otherwise, has been established for some time. But the lingering benevolence toward the fatuousness of that connection has reflected another national pastime - the tentative cultivating of an innocent spirit that has never existed except as fable and that, averting seamier historical alternatives, craves to be accepted at least for the fancy. E., if children can have their Santa Claus, grown-ups strange can have their Abner doubleday. Doubleday as the progenitor of something purely American cuts to a profound cultural bias none of its advocates has ever known except as borrowed reverie, but - for a multitude of social, political, and psychological reasons - that has been good enough. Purity is never in so much demand as around the suspicion that impurity has been having a very rowdy time. Few periods in United States history have been rowdier than the one that provided a setting for the doubleday fancy, the late nineteenth century.
I will finish by saying that those who are out to publicly denigrate the Brigade committees decisions using untruths and lies will become our enemy, there are legitimate means of raising concerns and the committee are completely open and transparent. I would expect though until these cowards who hide behind pseudonyms have the courage to speak openly we may see more of these sorts of attacks in the future, or until the end of the ec election anyway. So let me be absolutely clear; On the 8th March 2018 at Rothwell Fire Station, west Yorkshire fbu unanimously voted to recommend Brother Steve howley. This meeting was quorate, despite the horrible weather conditions and the minutes will be available to any member wanting to view them after ratification on the 5th April 2018. Yours in unity, dave williams, wyfbu brigade secretary. We would laugh off the idea of Abner doubleday being responsible for the civil War. Were not even likely to indulge claims of the kind as droll and harmless.

Unfortunately, due to the Brigade Organiser and myself being required to attend a national meeting in Newcastle on the 1st March the Brigade committee was postponed until the following Thursday. Thursday 8th arrived amidst another massive snow fall which meant that some members of the committee couldnt attend, but let me be clear about the following points: 1) The meeting did go ahead, in fact in went ahead at Rothwell fire station because there was. 2) The meeting was quorate, with 60 of the divisions represented and 50 of the voting sections, it is worth noting here that I do not get a vote and the Chair (or vice Chair in this instance) only gets the casting vote. 3) That vote was carried unanimously. 4) no travel regional Officials attended.
5) Minutes are already typed up ready for ratification at the next Brigade committee on the 5th April. Regarding john shaw and his mischief making (if in fact John is a he) I will say; i will not accept criticism about the legitimacy of the Brigade committee from any individual who acts anonymously, member or not. I will not accept criticism about the legitimacy of the Brigade committee from any non-member. I will not accept criticism from any other member, rep or official from any other Brigade who perhaps do not have their own house in order regarding the governance of their respective committees. I will gladly accept criticism from any member in any Brigade, where its factually correct and legitimately raised.
All fbu members, election for yorkshire and humberside ec member. Firstly let me apologise for such a long winded message, but within hours of the announcement that wyfbu are recommending Brother Steve howley for Yorkshire and Humberside regional ec member, someone who never had the courage to reveal their true identity, was castingdisparaging comments about. Im always impressed when members or non-members from West Yorkshire (or other Brigades for that matter) take an interest in the outcomes from Brigade committee meetings, there arent that many i can tell you. What impresses me more is when members or non-members from West Yorkshire (or other Brigades for that matter) take an interest in the governance of the committee, believe me theres even fewer of those types of people, however an election between two candidates certainly draws. So specifically for john shaw (whoever you may be) and others who may be interested, let me explain a little about the governance of wyfbu brigade committee.
1) The Brigade committee meet the first Thursday of every month. 2) The Brigade committee is made up of representatives from the 5 local authorities or divisions (div reps of which there can be 2) and sectional reps, some with a vote, some sections dont. There is a very good reason why wyfbu run this structure and that is because its much, much easier to be quorate (for a vote) than running the Branch structure which other Brigades do in our region and I suspect further afield. Under the Branch structure, if a brigade has 35 branches, then that Brigade committee would need 18 of those reps to attend to be quorate (50 1 this is incredibly challenging and could mean that any vote taken wouldnt be legitimate. 3) The Brigade committee invite the regional Officials to every meeting. 4) The Brigade committee also invite all wyfbu members to attend in an observational capacity, this is something i instigated 7 years ago when I became the Brigade secretary. 5) None of the members, reps or officials, west Yorkshire or Regionally are compelled to attend. 6) Minutes are taken at every meeting and agreed at the following meeting. These minutes are freely available to read, but understandably not made public.
