ON THIS WEEK'S EDITION OF JOHNNY REB MEETS BILLY YANK WE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT THE PRESIDENCY OF ANDREW JACKSON AND ITS IMPACT ON THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENCY, NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. JACKSON, A GREAT GENERAL WHO GAINED FAME FROM HIS RESOUNDING VICTORY IN THE BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS, BECAME PRESIDENT ON HIS SECOND TRY IN 1828. AFTER HIS LOSS TO JOHN QUINCY ADAMS IN 1824 AND THE UPROAR CREATED BY THE WAY HE LOST, HE STORMED BACK AND WON TWO TERMS AND SERVED FROM 1828-1836. WE WILL TALK ABOUT HIS IMPACT ON THE OFFICE AND THE ISSUES HE FACED AND HOW THEY RELATE TO THINGS IN AMERICA TODAY. A MAJOR ISSUE WE WILL DISCUSS IS HIS OPPOSITION TO A NATIONAL BANK (BOY IS HE ROLLING OVER IN HIS GRAVE TODAY).
A LITTLE HISTORY IS SOMETHING WE ALL NEED IF WE DON'T WANT TO REPEAT PAST MISTAKES. HOPE YOU'LL TUNE IN AS BILLY AND I DISCUSS THINGS WITH A LITTLE FRIENDLY JOUSTING FROM TIME TO TIME.
IN THIS SECOND EPISODE OF OUR SERIES, JOHNNY REB AND BILLY YANK WILL DISCUSS THE DIFFICULTY THAT THE NEW UNITED STATES WENT THROUGH IN TURNING THE CONSTITUTION AND ITS BILL OF RIGHTS INTO A WORKING GOVERNMENT. MANY PITFALLS WERE PRESENT AND THERE WAS MUCH DIVISION, BUT AMERICA MANAGED TO WORK ITS WAY THROUGH INTO AN EFFECTIVE BLEND OF IDEAS WHICH CAME TO WORK.
WE WILL BLEND A LITTLE HUMOR WITH SOME HISTORY AS WE DETAIL SOME OF THE CRITICAL ISSUES OF THE TIMES, MANY OF WHICH CONTINUE ON TODAY. INCLUDED ARE:
OPERATING THE NEW GOVERNMENT UNDER AN EXECUTIVE WITH A LEGISLATURE AND JUDICIARY OF CO-EQUAL AUTHORITY.
THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A NATIONAL BANK AND CREDIT.
CUSTOMS, DUTIES AND EXCISE TAXES (INCLUDING THE WHISKEY REBELLION IN PROTEST)
THE ONGOING BATTLE OF WILL BETWEEN THOMAS JEFFERSON AND ALEXANDER HAMILTON.
THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE UNITED STATES (JUDICIARY ACT)
CONTINUED OPPOSITION AND TROUBLE WITH BRITAIN.
AMERICA AND THE FRENCH REVOLUTION
AND MUCH, MUCH MORE.
WE WILL RELATE MANY OF THE ISSUES AND PROBLEMS FOUND THEN WITH PROBLEMS TODAY, A PRIME MEASURE OF HOW HISTORY DOES INDEED REPEAT ITSELF.
HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US. I PROMISE NOT TO GET IN A DUEL WITH BILLY YANK. SHOW STARTS PROMPTLY AT 9:02 WEDNESDAY NIGHT.

NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE A NEW PROGRAM WHICH WILL AIR EVER OTHER WEDNESDAY, COMMENCING THIS WEEK. "JOHNNY REB MEETS BILL YANK" IS NOT A CIVIL WAR PROGRAM, HOWEVER, THE TITLE IS CHOSEN PARTLY BECAUSE YOUR HOST, JAMES DICK, IS AM A MAN BORN AND RAISED IN THE SOUTH AND MY COMPATRIOT ON THE PROGRAM, MARK COLLIER, HAS THE DISTINCTION OF BEING AN INDIANAN, A HOOSIER BY BIRTH, BORN IN THE LAND OF WHAT SOME OF US STILL CALL THE ARMY OF NORTHERN AGGRESSION, BUT NOT IN AN ANGRY WAY.
BUT THAT IS JUST PART OF THE REASON SINCE AMERICA IS GREATLY DIVIDED TODAY JUST LIKE IT WAS IN 1860 AND PRIOR TO THAT IN REVOLUTIONARY WAR TIMES, BUT THAT REALLY SHOULDN'T SUPRISE ANYONE FOR HISTORY SHOWS THAT AMERICA HAS ALWAYS HAD GREAT DIVISIONS BUT WHEN CRUNCH TIME CAME AND ACTION WAS NECESSARY WE HAVE ALWAYS IN THE END COME TOGETHER TO MAKE HER STRONGER.
SO A DIVIDED COUNTRY IS JUST PART OF OUR HISTORY AND OUR LIVE AND WE WILL DISCUSS THE THINGS THAT HAVE CAUSED THIS BOTH FROM AN HISTORICAL POINT OF VIEW AS WELL AS OUR CURRENT SITUATION. BUT WE WILL DO IT IN A WAY WHICH I HOPE WILL ADD SOME HUMOR, FOR LOOKING INWARDLY AT OURSELVES AS A NATION REQUIRES A TOUCH OF HUMOR TO NOT TAKE THINGS TOO SERIOUSLY.
SO WHETHER YOU ARE A "JOHNNY REB" OR A "BILLY YANK", THE DYNAMICS OF AMERICA, OUR GREAT LAND AND HOME, IS ALWAYS OF VALUE. HOPE TO SEE YOU WEDNESDAY NIGHT.
