General Pickett Letters

http://www.ravenecho.com/static/155/68d8de52b662b43f5179b55d8fea49fa.jpg

My close association with Paul Karabin and his remarkable past life case has been on going these past nine years. Paul is General George E Pickett CSA returned, of that I have no doubt in my mind whatsoever. His wife Diane Karabin was his wife La Salle in the Civil War and his brother and sister also turned up to be re-united during this period. George is a true Rebel Spirit and a man I am proud to call my brother in arms. for we go way back many lives. No coincidence then that I have had a life long fixation with his image, Pickett's Charge and the Battle of Gettysburg! So while I fought my Civil War in the saddle with the 5th Georgia Volunteer Cavalry, George was busy making history in Pennsylvania.

This is the story of how he discovered his past and how we renewed our enduring beyond the grave friendship.

Letter 1) Hello Dr. Baillie!

I have met several times with Mr. Jeffrey Keene and we met due to my

internet search for someone who had an emotionally traumatic experience on a 2nd

War of Independence Battlefield. I was definitely not one who was into this period except for

a long love of Confederate Flags since childhood but have now found out

through my encounters with Mr. Keene that I received my "trigger" in

Gettysburg Pa. in July of 2003. I have a short un-edited story and

similarities profile and pictures to show my reasoning and that of my

wife too. I have a hard time sending jpegs to the UK. But I will try if

you would like to hear it.

Thank You & Have a pleasant day.

Reply 2) Hi ya George - how's it goin' you old son of a gun!?

call me Ian

I was formerly Private Alexander Baillie Kell of the 5th Regiment

Georgia Volunteer Cavalry 1862 to 1865 and previous to that 3rd Lt McIntosh Light Dragoons from McIntosh County Georgia.

I have had a waking memory of it ever since I was small which

coincided with the 100th anniversary of our recent difference of

opinion.

I re-enacted the whole darn thing all my life and finally made sense of it

all when I found a picture of myself in a book back in 99 same name same face same memory!

Thank goodness I wasn't doolally

Also being a physicist interested in Cosmology and Quantum Mechanics I

had the science to back it up

Result I was frist person to demonstrate memory survives mortality! A

lucky thing Baillie's bother was none other than Captain John McIntosh Kell first Officer of the CSS Alabama who together with Admiral Raphael Semmes upset the Yankees considerably by

sinking or taking some 69 odd ships before the famous honourable duel off of Cherbourg, France in June 1864 which ended the two year spree.

Due to the loads of documentary evidence available I was able to confirm my childhood memory re-enactment and better still the gentleman that found the photograph of Baillie Kell, Professor

Norman c Delaney of Del Mar College Corpus Christi looks like and has the memory of Baillie's brother John McIntosh Kell!!!

When we met it was as if we had known each other forever! Two brothers re-united after a gap of 101 years in linear time.

www.ravenecho.com has the outline and pictures

Rebel Spirit was the first book documenting the discovery

followed by Forbidden Science last year the how it works guide to it all

quite simply brain is a modem mind is a website universe is the internet

at the quantum level - a giant memory machine!

we down load memory upload experience whilst in a physical existence in

true there is no time in higher dimensions so there is only really the

universal now! the Matrix films summed it up very neatly although a

little jazzed up to entertain

your DNA is the soft ware key that allows your mind (+soul memory)

to access your physical body so you can interact and do stuff with other

souls - in fact we often bump into each other over and over again

reviewing the same problems from different angles

so we can learn and develop - we are in truth just fractal droplets of

the one consciousness that holds everything that is

how's that for quick run down of how it works????

make sense

so how are you dealing with the trauma of being in one of history's

greatest heroic events???

The fall out is pretty terrific I bet?

George would always cross over the road to avoid Lee after the war and

is quoted as saying " that old man had my Division slaughtered" or words

to that effect

"General Lee" I have no division" I think says it all

I would be might interested to know how you feel about the above and

what you think now - goosebumps or what else?

We all live with the consequences of the events previously

Now I can in some ways empathise as before Baillie Kell

I was Lt General William Baillie of the Scottish Covenant Army

an Infantry General 1638 to 1648 when I surrendered to Cromwell at the

close of the second English Civil War - I then became a friend and a

trooper in the Ironsides Twisleton's Horse Captain Owen Cambridge's

troop and gave Cromwell his finest victory at Dunbar 1651 when knowing

the weaknesses of The Scottish Army I was able to advise him to charge

full on at the weakest point ( my Old 2i/c Sir James Lumsden's Brigades

from Fife) They collapsed as I knew they wouldn't stand and Cromwell

rolled up the flank giving him his crowning military achievement

for at Marston Moor July 2 1644 we (the Scots Infantry) had held the

line enabling him to gain his victory over Prince Rupert - the beginning

of the end for the Cavalier cause He never forgot thank goodness for

it spared my head from being chopped off 4 years later!

so same name same face and same memories - I even speak fluent Dutch

having worked and lived in the same places in Holland at the same age as

him

so it all goes around in circles

and knowing two past lives with evidence and timings means we can see

how the whole thing works cause and effect

Government General Rebel Private Officer no commission beautiful blonde

Dutch wife - unable to get married due to not getting the commission and

so on and translating itself in amazing detail throughout my entire

life

why I married my blonde haired wife threw away the chance of a

commission to stay married - I had learnt my lesson!

Love is the most important thing.........

hope that hasn't blown too many fuses!!!?

and that you would like to still talk to me?!!!

without the stand up evidence - most people would have backed off if I

talked as above

but .... not anymore welcome to the club

be very interested in seeing your physical photo to compare with George

if you can send one also if you want to chat and tell me your

experiences

Last year also I decoded all my memories (10) the other 8 fell into

place as I have manifest material artifacts to do with all of them right

from day one......that's how I operate see something familiar collect

it.....

and so I was able to identify the previous memories which I can relate

if you are still interested?

please send your material love to read it

here is my total mind map

[ An attachment, image/jpeg: BaillieMemoryMap50%.jpg : actual size 126k : encoded size 168k, was included here ]

numbered 1 to 10 you can get an over view of my fall into hate and rise

into love we all go way back and like you now I have identified and

have reasoning to substantiate this especially the two last previous

lives

how does Karabin fit with the DNA hypothesis? George was of mixed

European descent ......... Norman Delaney Irish John McIntosh Kell

Kell is Irish me I responded to the Baillie Scottish bit even calling

myself Baillie then although it was my middle name

always Baillie very proud of the spelling - except no substitutes

always felt that

But the Universe was teaching me a lesson as William Baillie Bested by

the Great Montrose - Jamie Graham I lost Alford 1645 and Kilsyth 1645

and no body likes a losing General!!!!!!!!!! Marston Moor the previous

year was my finest hour.....

Montrose had Irish soldiers 3 regiments as his backbone and they did

most of the fighting - I hated those Irish!!!!!!!!!!

so God said right your Dad's going to be Irish although he will die

before you're born Feb 23 1828 John Kell died 6 months previous and you

going to fall in love with an Irish Catholic girl Mary Sulllivan!!!!!!!

but not get married - no money 1870 1871

so that will teach you!

anyways - Rosie Lagrue the RE teacher at St Mary's when we merged

schools I was Head of Science and she was Head of RE turned out to have

Mary Sullivan's memory! and her maiden name was......wait for it.......

Rose Mary O'Sullivan! so we met up in this life and together produced

Rebel Spirit our "Baby" as we called it

being both Celts we call this completing the circle! we completed the

circle

well better go and do some shopping to feed the troops when they get

home

take care look forward to many more chats and reviewing you evidence -

you're among friends so no fear of criticism it just is and emotion is

the language of the soul

nice to meet you Paul

Best wishes ian

Letter 4) Howdy Ian!

I knew George had mixed descent from Europe, so do I : My

grandparents are all European: Germany(Schoensee Bavaria), White

Russia(Minsk) & Southern Poland. Go Figure. I wonder what his DNA was?

Here is my quick story. Raw at times but true & the documented

similarities.

Ist a picture of my wife LaSalle Corbell

Pickett in the 1860's

My wife now in the 1980's. Together now 21 years!

Old GEP

Much younger GE Pickett(actually the ages when photographed are close)

I am 47 now and he was 50 when he died in Norfolk Va.


George's Story

How he discovered who he had been...

Back in the saddle again a few weeks back. Got on I knew what to do. I

have not been on a horse since the 1960's when I was 4-5 years old.

As far as the trauma of being in the July 1863 event, as a young child

I could not sleep every July 3rd. I had the sweats and was anxious to

the point of holding an old pocket watch in my hand in bed and checking

it by the 15 minute intervals until early dawn on the 4th. Then it was

gone and I could go up to my grandfathers camp collect old brass pipes

and make cannons out of it and fire things at trees in the woods.

By the way the name Karabin means -gun maker or rifle and was know to

belong to mercenaries in Europe. We are a mutt race of "hire for fire"

from way back. The name can be Check, Italian. Polish, German etc.

like Smith in the USA.

I have always been a mean kind of kick you in the leg if you piss me

off guy. As long as the other guy is not too much bigger. I do not like

liars and procrastinators and can not stand being told what to do

especially if I think the outcome is disastrous! As far a Lee, usually

in order to avoid an argument or confrontation I still move aside and

cross the street if I see someone coming I am not fond of, but I have

somewhat forgiven the old man for the order of that day. Hind sight is

always 20-20 and now I know what I would do if I could go back. But

that's not about to happen. I will have to go back a few more times in

present time and then it will be a every 5 year trip. I need to be in

Gettysburg in full uniform this year in the position I was in in 1863.

I need to find out who grabbed my arm and scratched my back in my sleep

last summer and send him home or bring him with me. I have a picture of

the bruises on my arm a week later after we came home. No, no

goose-bumps I have led a similar life of never attaining a glorified

position in life always the crap detail (prisoner routing in the war of

1861-5)

and details in supposed positions of supervisory acclaim that left

much to be desired. I know what HE (I) went through. I can certainly

feel his unfinished business attitude and his feelings of never

achieving that goal...VICTORY!

Oh, I also have a real bad temper and have had to deal with it over

the years. I would call it more of a 180 year old rage at times.

And I am glad to be a member of the club. I am answering your

questions and statements as I printed off your e mail to read. I hate

to read on the screen I like it in my hands!

And yes a every day or so chat is fine , daily is better. I want to

remember it all. My wife Diane asked me if it all came back could I

handle his sadness and pain. I said yes but I am only afraid what I

would do if i ever found the reincarnation of T. Sherman or that

bastard who burnt down my families home on Turkey Island "Butler". I

know who I am and I did not have an issue with it back then but then I

was just happy to have a living wife and a roof over my head.

I have a lot of issues with these yankee men who killed, raped and

burned or homes, livestock & land because we wanted our own country. I

have issues with them still!

I see it as this way " every dog has his day" ours may be coming in a

good way and theirs may be coming for retribution. But its up to th

creator for the justice part. But I will help him out if asked!

If you can help me remember that would be super. If by purchasing

your book I gain enlightenment thats good too! If I need to I will

send you the funds in a way you desire.

A great time conversing with y'all. Also know this I lost 35 # of

weight last year fixing up my wifes new store and mine. I work also as

a salesman if I did not mention that too! So did GEP after the war.

check us out at www.doralstouchofcalss.com my wifes Floral & Gift Shop

And me at www.pickettsgeneralstore.com

Good night good friend and let me know what think of this bloody mess I

am in!

Regards and with my compliments!

Paul

GE Pickett


Letter:

Greetings Jeff & Salutations!

I have a story for you and it’s a long one. A lot has come to light, past dreams as a youngster, urges to collect items of Southern Heritage, etc. and its starting to make some order in my life after what I have gone through.

It all started in June of 2003 when my son Erik had me watch a VHS of the movie Gettysburg. I thought it was a very well done move and after viewing it he asked "can we go there for vacation?" I said possibly, but we are also going to Old Forge NY to the Water Safari park for my daughter Katie and my wife Diane. Erik was 11 then but is into history as I was in High School. But my forte was WWI & WWII. I had NO interest in the 2nd war of Independence. So it was done, in July we would spend 4 days in Gettysburg and 2 at Old Forge at the park.

Gettysburg is 390 miles from Amsterdam, NY and about 5-1/2 hours of driving. My only thoughts on the place are there I could possibly get a few flags (CSA) and belt buckles. I have some WWII German items, original tank battle flag and belt buckles, bayonets etc. so I figured I only had a small CSA flag that I asked for years ago but I always liked it more than any other USA one historically.

The Gettysburg Experience begins.....

Well, about 3pm in the afternoon we arrive on a Friday and we check in to the Quality Inn on Steinwehr Ave. My wife and daughter are up the stairs 1st with luggage and my son and I are last. I am tired, want something to eat and a cold beer and start the

long climb up the stairs. As we turn the corner on the 1st landing I turned to my right and set the bags down and grabbed the balcony hand- rail. I was facing in what direction I have no idea, as I have never been there, never looked at a map of the town, nor received any info for any source except highway driving instructions to that place. I held the rail and said to my son...." it was there. there over that damned hill!"

He said to me " what are you talking about?" I replied " the battle, the biggest battle was over that damned hill!" Erik asked me " How the heck do you know that?"

I replied as my voice started to crack, the tears welled up in my eyes, I felt so strange, sad, terribly sad as if my heart was being burned, my legs got weak, I felt like I was drunk and stuck in one position, the overwhelming feeling of sadness and

helplessness was about to overcome my being when I finally belted out as best as I could " Damn it, I can smell it!" I have never used that term in such a manner in my entire then 45 years of age. I was stunned to say the least. I cannot speak of it too much in the description of how I felt when I looked at just trees and a hill. I still start to get that feeling of wanting to cry. And I do not cry at Funerals. I have been told I have a hard heart. Years of conditioning in grammar school that "Men Do Not Cry"

held me from bursting out in whales of pain that day in July of 2003. I felt something that I never felt in my entire life, I knew something without using my brain to remember it like a phone number or email address. The same mechanisms that I normally use to remember something was not needed and I brushed it off as a fluke of " just being there, the moment of it all" or just plain nuts.

That vacation we drove by where the hill declines on the other side but were too wound up in the featured sights such as Spanglers Spring, Culps Hill, Devils Den, Little Round Top. I did not mention it again at all that year for the fear of looking foolish to my family. I felt better as we all unpacked and spent the rest of the day at these featured locations and of course the shopping and the pool at the motel. Actually I spent a lot of time taking pictures with my son in the battlefields and buying anything I could find that was Confederate. My wife and daughter were looking at the $4.95 Blue Belly hats and I picked up three Grey Kepis and said " here y'all go...these are fair to view, better than them damn yank hats"! She said what is wrong with you? Did you fall and bump your head more that I know about or are you going South in your old age! I said, I like grey, I always like that color better. She said yes I do know, every pair of sweats you buy, shirt or pants is always Grey or Black. You are so predictable it stinks.

Nothing else happened that year as after a few real nice days of sun and touring and spending a lot of hard earned federal dollars we headed back north to Amsterdam to rest one night then to hit Old Forge for the weekend. I felt sad leaving, never having to find out what was over that hill. All the places we visited had great historical significance and apparently my soul was avoiding to go there and let me

just ignore my inner urges to go and seek it out. Unknown as to the significance I was probably better off until more educated as to what happened “over that damn hill”.

In Old Forge my son and I agreed to talk the girls into a return visit the next summer. They said ok as long as if they could bask in the sun and shop and we could go play in the battlefields. Erik and I both said" It's a DEAL"!!

It was now April 2003 and I was having wierd dreams that I had as a child in my pre-teens. I always had this dream of a bearded Union soldier riding on a horse laughing as he rode chasing behind me. I hated this s.o.b. as I knew he was out to get me and for what reason I did not know why. He looks a lot like M.G. John Reynolds, Union. But now I have seen John Reynolds’ picture and it was not he.

But he could have been anyone Yank of that time period. Also I told my wife about a dream that re-occurred when my grandparents became elderly; as I was real close to both of my mothers parents. They were both sick and old and I kept dreaming then that to save their lives I had to amputate the arms or legs with this God awful hack saw. It was dirty and dark and the blade was stained and not like a new Sears Craftsman blade. And it had a wood handle. But always this one scared me the most as I knew in my dreams, it would either save or kill them. After they both had passed on the dreams went away. I really though I was nuts or a serial killer to be!

Also that April I had a dream of returning to the streets of Gettysburg and talking to strangers, which I have no problem doing because of my profession, but I was wearing a beard. I have a tash that I had since 1982, but never, never a beard. But the people were much more friendly and acted like I was an old friend. So I got up that morning, and I have not shaved my chin spaghetti since then. When it started to get

around 3 inches long the stares and comments started at work, on the street up here but it does not bother me. I am not relenting to anyone’s wishes, I couldn't, and I cannot now. It fits. It's me! Strange thing though it will NOT grow anyplace that is not on the pictures of MG Geo E. Pickett. I have no real side-burns, my cheeks are fuzzy at times but there is no growth there

looks just like the pictures with out a doubt!

Gettysburg 2004...July 30th

We arrive again at Steinwehr Ave. and its another nice hot day except I avoid stopping anywhere near that balcony and march on into our room. We are only a few rooms down from our last year’s spot which is fine. A good view of the pool when the kids are in it and we are on the balcony sitting in the chairs having a couple adult beverages and I picked up a cigar the year before and started smoking them again by this time. Well in the late afternoon of July 30th the girls tell us two war horses to go and shoot your pictures and we'll be in the pool, so off we go. Happy am I , no more gut and emotional crushing feelings as we came in.

As the afternoon starts to become evening around 5 or 6 Erik and I park on the Emmitsburg Pike searching for this High Water Mark. We were on Confederate Ave. at the start of Picketts Charge by Gen. Lee's statue but it was too hot to walk the mile. So we drove to the Pike and parked and looked around and Erik found it . Its up there he says so I drive to another battlefield entrance and we come up on the Penn. Memorial and park by a clump of trees, than he says "this is it". Ok I reply. Got digital in hand and cigar lit so off we go! Like two children in a candy store we scatter taking pictures and finally walking together reading the monuments. I looked at the memorial for General Lewis Armistead and put my hand on the stone and it started again. I almost cried and I said something strange with my son looking at me like I was loosing it " Howdy

Lo, long time". At That moment I raised my eyes and looked at my son on my right and he says I turned white, like I saw a ghost. I did..almost. Not a quarter mile away I am seeing a roof of the Cyclorama Center and I know it because just a 100 feet from its driveway is that damn balcony that you cannot see from this location.

I know it to be the place I stood a year ago and said what I said about the biggest damn battle over that hill. We were now on that hill's other side and its the HIGH WATER MARK. I said Erik do you know what that building is over there? He looks and says " its next to our motel. So, ...the balcony last year oh shit, how did you know...you are starting to scare me". I said "scare you" I am beside myself. I can not explain to a now an 11 year old why dad is almost in tears, talks to headstones like he knows the people and has a knowledge of a 1863 Battlefield that he in his lifetime has never visited before or even cared to visit. Now I am starting to wonder.

If anything I liked Stonewall Jackson, if I ever were to be someone in my past I liked Jackson. But he died in May of 1863 and was never here with Lee. I sort of believed in reincarnation, but being brought up Catholic, that as you probably know is a no no. So what the hell is this?

Back at the Motel Erik flys out of the Explorer to the gate of the pool telling mom and Katie, "Dad knew it, he freakin knew it!" Diane my wife says what? Erik says" The battle he said was over the hill, it was Pickett's Charge and her knew it last year!!" She said " what the heck are you babbling about?" So we all sat at an outdoor table by the pool and I told Diane & my daughter Katie about my experience on the balcony last year. They said freaky! But laughed it off as a coincidence. Well ok for them, I have to deal with this.

Evening comes and we eat, and as you probably know do a little shopping right on Steinwehr and on Taneytown Road all walking distance and we end up back on Steinwehr at The Regimental Quartermaster shop. I go off looking at the uniforms, I love wool, and the rest wander the store. I was walking past the main counter when I notice this lady in perod dress staring at me. First I thought she might be looking to see if I was checking out the place for a heist or something because I shop looking up down and all around. So this lady finally says" excuse me sir for asking" I say yes? " do you re-enact?" No, but I am getting a feeling I probably should." Why do you ask?" she says 'well, sir let me tell you, you are a spittin image of General George Pickett. Look Bill or Bob(talking to her boss,) does this gentlemen not look like General Pickett? Then I get this angry feeling for an instant and say " Thats Major General please"...my family stares at me, the boss says General", I say “ At ease soldier”. . She was all over me and my wife does the "we need to eat so lets get going ok ??" Yes dear and off we go.

Now I am feeling weird & perplexed!. I do remember seeing Pickett in the movie but he was as I thought then; a looser. Never reached the goal to take the wall, a lost cause if there ever was one. But oh well. But it intrigued me. I saw a book about him at the Cyclorama and my wife said write down the title and author and get it from Barnes & Noble when we get back....it's cheaper. I reluctantly said ok. Now I want to read about this guy.

Encounter in the Night.

We went to a bar they have in a coal mining cave at the Motel 1st time, skipped it last year but feeling more adventurous we all went. Had my favorie JD on the rocks, my wife the Kalua with milk and sodas for the kids. Had a six pack of Bud in the cooler in our room too so I had a couple of them started and freezing from the airconditioner so I put on a long sleeve shirt and we all crashed. Sometime during the night I start (what I think is dreaming) that my arm hurts and is burning in the location of my right bicep. I like to sleep with my hand under a cool pillow its relaxing and I remember trying to put it there but I could not move my arm...someone was grabbing it and the harder I tried...it burned more. Eventually without actually waking up or opening my eyes I was let free and it felt like an oozing away from my arm. What ever had me, melted off and the burn felt cooler and gone. I went to sleep. No more events happened a few more stares and comments about the Pickett look-a-like thing but now we are headed South to Colonial Beach Virginia.

After a 4 hour drive we arrive and after one night in the filthy Days INN at Colonial Beach we take up a few nights lodging in Montrose Va. at Stratford Hall. The birthplace of Robert E. Lee. I loved it there. The people we so nice and the place was great. The 1st morning I came out of the shower and as I was drying my hair quickly with the bath towel my wife says" where did you get the scratches on your back..? Ok what scratches I say. Diane says "you have a hand print and nail scratches on the middle of your back..where the hell did you go the last night in Gettysburg?'" who me?? I said "to sleep ...after my arm stopped burning"! She said where and I showed her and (I have a two week old picture of the bruising) oh shit

she said, you have a hand print bruised on your inner arm too. Then I told her , the last night in Gettysburg it started to burn so I pulled harder to put it under the pillow and then it was gone. So I went to sleep.

...There is more and it gets better...I will finish on Friday evening... I need to get to bed and to work in the morning...Tomorrow I will finish with the book I did get at half price at Barnes & Noble called" Pickett- Life & Legend" and list the amazing similarities between then and now. Ain't too much changed, except the damn date on the calendar I do say! The next email gets real, real weird for my family, me I just know it to be me, its always been, just me!

Remember Big Arnolds famous line:

I'll be back... Now this takes on a new meaning!

Paul Karabin

aka George E. Pickett

Afterthought:

In my minds eye, I could see the hill beyond slope down with a dirt road to the right, small fences along the road but a misty light green grass, as if covered in cloud or smoke. No people just a few small trees, rocks here and there jutting out of the tall grass and as if the wind was in the air a bit the grass tipped north. If I could paint I would. There was no blood yet.


Here is the ongoing list of similarities with me and The General. Most of his traits came from "The Life & Legend" and a book I am into now "Pickett's Charge" In History & Memory by Carol Reardon. Well he we go:

PS I read a few excerpts from the 1st book to my family hiding the cover and they said " who wrote about your habits in a book dad?" Then I gave the book to my wife and children and they were should we say curiously frightened. Did not bother me, as I said to them reading all this new stuff , it was new now to me, but there were no surprises . I was not shocked by anything it seemed like reading an old high school

report card. You get that feeling "oh yea that’s right". I have no other recollections except these few similarities:

The General: wore a cross around his neck after the Mexican War till the day he died.

Me: have worn one and never take it off for as long as I can remember.

The General: Wore a perfume(arabay) and was smelled a mile away.

Me: I wear a scent on myself that folks tell when I am in a building, so I have been told. Done this for quite a while 15 years or so.

The General: Swore quite a bit.

Me: gets in lots of trouble in my day for my language skills and the use thereof!

The General: favored as they said hard drink

Me: I have mellowed but a quart of JD in two days on a weekend by a camp -fire was

routine.

The General: Had many re-occuring bouts of stomach trouble

Me: Go figure, you abuse your guts as a younger man, what do you get when you are older? Same deal.

The General: smoked cigar and a pipe.

Me: put the pipe away a few years ago. Cigars just had one on the back porch.

The General: spoke at least three foreign languages.

Me: was good in Latin, German (still use the swear words, Russian, Polish, Arabic, a little French & Italian.

(an afterthought. I gave my cat Sam a 30 lb. male Maine Coon/Siamese mix several pet names, Chub, Huge, Sam of course and a phrase that just came out one day. This cat will give paw on request and KISS if you ask him. I called him something that blew me away. I found in later reading that The General spoke Chinook when he was in Washington state. The words I called my cat sounded out as “bi bi nac seht a neyh.”

Which in Chinook means " THE ONE WHO KISSES"!

I had a great-uncle who was mechanically inclined and we lived in one of his apartments when I was 3 to 4 years old. He would show me the saws and the tools but always said no to touching or using , constantly saying no. But we got along drinking ice coffee and he packing my corn cob pipe and lighting it when I was that young. I used to call him ghesha

The Chinook word is kesch meaning no , one who constantly says no.

My grandfather was the one who I loved and got along with the most. He was my mothers father and he made me laugh and we drank vodka together at 5 years of age. I called him gee gee, the Chinook words for one who makes you laugh is hi hi (hee hee)

The General: could play a few musical instruments.

Me: Piano, Organ, Guitar in my younger days....

The General: lost two wives and one combo wife & chld in childbirth.

Me: Had children late my choice, almost needed sedation when my wife went in for it both times. Kept getting panic attacks that the baby and her were going to die during the experience.

The General: His uniform as well as regular clothing were made of cotton and wool.

Me: I love wool and wear a lot of cotton. Hate synthetics!

The General: His father was a military person.

Me: My dad was in the Air Force WWll and The Marines in Korea. I was a day away from joining up in 1975 when I got called for a job. And decided not to enlist. The Army recruiter called me for several weeks after asking me to

Sign up.

The General: had a scar on his right arm/shoulder area from a wound during the Civil War.

Me: Only scar I have is on my upper right arm in the tricep area.

The General: was a 3rd degree Master Mason and a member of the Royal Arch

Me: 3rd degree master Mason for 25 years and partially intiated in the Royal Arch. The degree work stopped years ago due to the death of several members and I just inquired about finishing them this year. I was the 1st ever in my family to petition the Masonic Lodge. When I was very young 10, 11 years old I wanted to know more about them and wanted to be one. This was a bigger no no for Catholics. But I did it anyway!

The General: died on July 30th 1875 in Norfolk Va. at St. Vincent de Paul's Catholic Hospital.

Me: My confirmation name is Vincent de Paul...I never liked it and my father cannot remember why he picked it out for me in the third grade in 1965. The patron Saint of the Virginia Diocese is St. Vincent de Paul who was chosen to be just that on October 14th in the early 1800's.

Clincher: My birthday is October 14th 1957.

Please see the similar looks of the hospital The General died in and the St. Mary Hospital I was born in. Pictures available upon request.

Update: As a Mason anyone knows the fraternity has many secrets and clues to finding

Them out. Also the Knights Templar that Pickett was a member of as I was also going through the degrees a few years back has some of its temples believing in re-incarnation.

One morning while taking a shower I gave thought to try to make sense of all these

Similarities in some semblance if at all practicable and possible.

Here is what I thought possible as the clues: After the 1st year in Gettysburg(in a separate letter) I knew I had left something there or needed to find it there. No I do not. I found it with the 1st 5 minutes of being there…”the trigger”.

Also clues: Pickett’s mothers name was “Mary” the birth mother

I was born at St. “Mary’s’” Hospital

George Pickett died in St. Vincent de Paul’s Hospital ..my catholic “confirmation” name.

This would be my clue as to the confirmation of who I am. Also if any doubt is present,

when you are Confirmed in The Catholic faith, this make you a “Soldier” of Christ.

Go Figure. These are my clues.


Up Date; My wife when she was not even engaged to me, a much younger by almost 10 years walked down our summer camp road to the beach and met me with a Blue Carnation. Her favorite color flower. I still have it in a safe somewhere. After we were married around 1986 or 87 I asked her to stop on a not so busy Highway and dig me out those beautiful blue summer wild flowers as I wanted them planted at the camp. She did.

Now I find that Pickett met Sally as she came up to him on a beach.

And the blue flower I like so much is the one he picked for her and brought it to her after the battle of Gettysburg. Its encased in glass and is on display with the Pickett Society in Va.

I also realize I do not like to be followed close when I am driving alone, it irritates me to no end and when I am in a mall parking lot I have been seen ducking my head and shoulders as if the steel beams above were able to strike me. I was asked by a friend, “what are you doing….riding a horse?”

Also the church interior pictures of George & Sallys Episcopal Church “St Pauls” that they were married in looks extremely like the church Diane & I were married in up here in Amsterdam in New York. Pictures available for viewing upon request.

The Generals wife Sally “quoted in one of her books” said to him that she was right always right and that he should heed her advice.

My wifes maiden name was Wright and for years since 1st we were married that’s all she tells me when I screw up things “should have listened to me as I was born Wright”

Pickett had a servant on the field named Bob. I have called my son, Erik , now 14 yrs. old

Bob when I wanted him to do something for me.

LaSalle had her servant named Lucy /Lucielle. My wife calls my daughter Katherin when she is doing something wrong “Oh Lucy” come here please.

Pickett had a dog he named Rufus. I had a black cat whose fur was turning a hue of red as he aged in his final years. I called him from the Latin no longer Puffy but Rufus!

There are probably more and I know there will be!

My Reply) WOW! Well now General - I have but barely scan everything but you got it!

Yes sir bell ringing at every point

the universe runs on coincidence - you've discovered that

some one once re named that "God incidence" which is pretty cool and I

agree with that

Love is the glue that binds the universe together - you've discovered

that

you've had the awakening and it will continue to clear and focus

I am so pleased to meet you and as with Jeff hope we can be good friends

over the coming years

I will help you in any way - I too am a brother mason 3rd degree

In 1991 I purchased a sweat shirt from Gettysburg with Pickett's Charge

on it

took my wife and daughter to every battle field of the Eastern theatre -

took my flag with me the one I made when I was 13

I had re-enacted Mosby's Rangers the good ol' 43rd Battalion Virginia

Cavalry CSA as a child so focused as I was on the Eastern theatre of

conflict I finally rolled up my battle flag at Appomattox Court House

July 1991

I was 37 and 7 weeks old

Baillie Kell was 37 and 8 weeks old when he surrendered at Hillsboro NC

April 26th 1865

my subconscious had dragged me back to relive the emotions correct to

one week without knowing!

I think you should write a book ! definitely

I can help with that

I thought of starting a Ghosts of Confederate Veterans But as Jeff

said it's a bit too KKK !!!

agree with that one.........

but emotion is the language of the soul and those that lose have more to

remember - hence many more people re-enact the South than the North

once a Rebel always a Rebel!


No I am deeply honoured to meet you sir and I respect the sacrifice the

infantry made

for me the war was more in the vein of JEB Stuart - playing paintball

with the Yankees

my most vivid memory is shooting them like fish in a barrel at the

Battle of Kennesaw Mountain - the 5th Georgia Cav replaced Hood's boys

at the right of the Line on Brush mountain - I was armed with an Enfield

rifled musket ( made it when I was 15) and Called Brailsford's Mounted

Rifles after our Captain William Brailsford

it was too easy - I felt sorry for those boys in blue they had no chance

as we shot 'em down

rest of the time we were trying to do the impossible with the minimal

60 000 of Uncle Billy Sherman's boys against Our own Fighting Joe

Wheeler and 3000 cavalry

so we lost and I went back to Darien (Burnt by the Yanks in 1863 - see

the film GLORY) Robert Gould Shaw

worst than that my Sallie was betrothed to another and I watched her

slip away married to a miserable non romantic S.O.B. that never cared

for her or truly loved her as she deserved - didn't even bury her with a

grave stone ! Mean S.O.B.

still gets me

well now think I'd better send you a couple of books to get stuck into

can you e-mail me your postal address and I will send 'em asap

I'm afraid as you will read in the book Baillie was rubbish with money!

still am - I'm a teacher - material goods and money don't do it for me

this is all beyond money - but what we'll do is all have a grand

drinking session and some seeeeeegars when we meet up

love the picture on the horse brings it right out even your sitting

position is so fine - a natural

so postal address meantime scan my website

www.ravenecho.com

for the images to get a feel and I will feed you extra bits that aren't

in the book - could have filled 3 books with stuff left over

you will be interested as you are emotionally attached to the period -

some folk just glaze over after 3 or 4 hours!

they weren't there so they just don't know the depth of emotional

feeling we have

another practical thing you can do is to map out you timeline with that

of George

you will see the coincidences stack up

mine started off simply and then grew

here is the up to date one but still more stuff needs adding

the coincidences work for all others in my soul group so I think it may

be a general principle in operation by the universe

this was how it started just a simple line

[ An attachment, image/jpeg: BaillieTimelines50%.jpg : actual size 42k : encoded size 56k, was included here ]

this is the latest triple you can see how things stack up across time as

though it doesn't exist which is basically it - it's an illusion just

stops event bumping into each other

[ An attachment, application/msword: BaillieTripleTimeline.doc : actual size 339k : encoded size 452k, was included here ]

well better skedaddle time to make a cup of tea for my wife coming home

any minute

God bless you George!

Yours Confederately

Baillie

the South has risen again!


Howdy Ian!

I knew George had mixed descent from Europe, so do I : My

grandparents are all European: Germany(Schoensee Bavaria), White

Russia(Minsk) & Southern Poland. Go Figure. I wonder what his DNA was?

Here is my quick story. Raw at times but true & the documented

similarities.

Baillie! Hoorah!

I am printing your message as I write. I have to go to my store to

work now its 5:15 ESTpm on the East Coast, but I read your comment on

JEB .... I still have a laugh when Jeff told me he met (her) a few

years back. He came back as a woman. I had to laugh because of his

running amuck up North robbing trains and not scouting the enemy we got

our asses kicked at Gettysburg along with other factors but the

re-incarnation I do believe fits him (her)!

I still am an old pisser if I must say so sir! Yes its good to be

friends and I would even write to (her) too! But you and I are a fit.

I need help. I want my memories back!

I will write more to you sir in the eve of this day!

Regards!

George

aka Paul

Danke Schoen Herr Doktor!

The books will be of much treasured value. I was not a reader since

my courses is TQM and SPC in the 1980's when I worked in

manufacturing(trenches of war) we called it!

Now I am a media Salesman. Just like George I ended up a salesman.

The address is: Pickett's General Store

4207 State Hwy. 30

Amsterdam, NY 12010 USA

(should be CSA) but thats life!

I will send you a big email next in the MB size of pics and

descriptions under the photos.

But here is a signature I scratched out when I thought something was

going on, and after 10 cans of ale I went in the cellar to change the

laundry around in the cold of winter one late night, took up a pencil,

grabbed a piece of scrap paper off my work bench and thought how would

he sign his name? I was thinking of the automatic writing technique

I heard about, relax close your eyes and Viola! I started to scratch

out what I saw in the third eye!

Here is my results:

This is GEP original signature my webmaster sent me to use in emails. I

did finally see this on a War records document a day later because when

I did a search every sit was selling or wanted to charge for the

privilege of a view of old signatures.

This is what I scratched out and quite toasted from the beer(ale):

What do you think?

George!

Sailors Memorial in Gettysburg Nat. Park

Devils Den (damn rocks)

My son Erik shot this. We both had digital camera's I went first then

he...this is the result. We heard this marker was very active for

spirits!

My store in Perth New York (mailing address is Amsterdam)

On the far side of this Quality Inn on Steinwehr Ave. in Gettysburg is

where it all began. Hard to believe unless You have been there at that

moment. My son was! Thats him on the left (Erik) my daughter Katherin

(Katie) and Diane my Sallie wife!

Possibly 500 feet from that balcony is the High Water Mark!

Look familiar. That's my daughter.

We stayed upstairs in the place one night after visiting Gen. Lee's

Plantation in Montrose Virginia on the way back north.

My son (yellow shirt) helping to unfurl the 40' x 40' battle-flag in

Gettysburg on September 25th 2004 celebrating the removal of the "Sims

Exhibit" a black so called artist

who discolored a Confederate flag and hung it through a noose at

Gettysburg College. We celebrated its demise and removal!

Yours truly (on the far left) ANV Heritage Defense Commander Henry Kidd

A Christmas sneer!

At my store while under construction in Dec.-Jan. in the middle of the

damn yankee winter! God I love wool!

There you go for a start. I have over 3,000 photo's on file on my Mac!

My son has more..

Write soon!

Deo Vindice!

George

PS

I prefer that name now! I used to in my youth despise it along with

other things in my George Pickett years that I liked. That's another

thing I found all that I dislike I do like all that I can do

artistically and musically I do different now. Certain instruments are

off limits and I have a hard time playing them so I find new ones

that I can. Its like I told my wife I am not allowed to do what I used

to do but learn new things and new instruments, but I found out that I

was around before and now I want to remember!

George

The flood gates will open and it will all gush out !

and all the other memories tucked away in your subconscious

love the comments below

so appropriate!

the universe has a sense of humour!!!!!!!!

like you living in Yankee land up North along with Jeff and a load of

other Johnnies

fantastic!

I even got the Federal Government to pay for a head stone for Baillie as

he was a veteran!

how cool is that

and I'm not even a US tax payer!

now that's justice!

letter

interesting thing is it is nearest when I right fast and it is without

the elaboration's but I could write it straight away

and I could see how my own present signature uses the same strokes but

in a different way

fascinating stuff

no you and me are two of a kind and we're gonna get on like a house on

fire

Baillie was always drinking and sing with the boys around the camp fire

Ian Baillie

So glad you're unreconstructed! thought you'ed all gone soft over there

with the political re write of history going on

I was in Georgia when they took the stars and bars off the state flag

should have just gone back to the old ante-bellum one but the new one is

very non descript

no there is room for all opinions and all peoples

The US is that sort of place

and as for putting Sherman in charge of the Indian problem well

means I just have to keep apologising to all native Americans I meet

coincidence we stayed at the same holiday Inn on Steinwehr Ave!

even looks like our room!

got my shirt from the turning point shop

and sat one tuesday morning having breakfast outside the Macdonald's

looking a Zieglers grove whist Harriet aged nearly 3 played in the play

pen

and I though is this what all those guys fought and died for?

and surprisingly I answered my own question and the answer was yes!

for we had the freedom to do just that

and as for those darn rocks

I got a particular vibe at the top of little round top the sun was

waning it was still darn hot 104 had to spend the day in the pool after

10.30 came back out around 4 ish

it was only when I found out in 1999 that Baillie had helped to haul the

cannon up Kennesaw that I finally realised why I had empathised

goosebumps wise as I stood on the top of Little round top

same thing!

a wonderful letter written by Baillie described my exact memory -

probably why he wrote it and why I remembered it

I tallied exactly with a painting I had done and a war game I had fought

when I was 15

[ An attachment, image/jpeg: Saltworks.jpg : actual size 274k : encoded size 366k, was included here ]

I called it Saltworks as it reminded me when I had painted it of an

action later in 1864 but it was in fact on Brush mountain on the far

right of the line around July 19th 1864

the letter was an exact word for word description!

so those darn rock were on our side that day........Yanks had no chance

fish in a barrel

Erik is a Viking spelling which is interesting to note

Interesting vibe - I wondered when the backlash against the PC Yankee

world would kick in

I see Washington as the new Rome with it's legions trying to keep order

in the middle East

as a Celt I'm afraid I had a bad experience with the Romans

captured and end up in the arena fighting with a net and a trident as a

retiarius

I like the comforts of civilisation but hate the slavery and fear that

kept them in place

ironic that I ended up on a plantation with 80 slave to keep under

control - that's why I was too soft letters say

the slaves run rings around Baillie and I believe he knows it!

I can't be nasty to slaves having been one myself around 79AD

like Russell Crowe in Gladiator - I had to summon up the guts to face

that one and watch it - but we have to own our own negativity and the

memory was so awful that I had put tremendous blocks on it

I was captured probably after Boudicca's rebellion 61 AD marched to Rome

and died in the arena - only way out

I love spiders and their webs studied them at University I had a net and

a sting in my trident was successful several fights but finally got

sandwiched by two secutors or myrmillos bastards and stabbed under the

right ribs fatal wound I still have the scar tissue which the docs can't

explain - but I can!

made dream catchers with some of my pupils today nets and tridents hum!

so I was a slave who became a General which was the opposite way around

to Russell.........the film has helped me accept that memory

also I think now that the Romans where all mad due to the lead in the

water they drank

explains their paranoid attitude and mindless violence

we see Blair as an Emperor mad on self belief
