      Now tearing down this one is fully justified.

          When I first came to the States as a fourteen year old kid that still was not all that comfortable with English I inspired the ire of my fellow students in History class because I knew American history better than they did. So, I am hardly surprised that some of the good people of New Orleans do not know that "La Pucelle" had nothing to do with American history.

              My worst jump story:
              My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
              As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
              No lie.

                  French francs are no longer the legal tender in France. Swiss francs are still legal in Switzerland, but France uses the Euro now.

                    Since Catholicism was the religion practiced in England, France, and Burgundy at the time of Jeanne d'Arc, I don't see how she shoved Catholicism down anyone's throat.

                    And the British had invaded and taken over a large part of France and the Maid had a large part in throwing the English out.

                    Her statue in Paris is quite magnificent. I saw it this past June-quite impressive-and she is still a national heroine.

                                Actually, taking the broad view,Joan the Maid probably did the English a favour.
