    I enjoyed your article. I guess I just have a hard time understanding why you can do something you know will be used for something you don’t agree with. To me that is like helping another person sin. Even if the “English” world doesn’t see it as a sin or wrong the Amish do. I’m just the type person who doesn’t think you should enable others to do what you feel is wrong.

    But on the other hand, I could see why they would have to ride in cars but yet not be allowed to drive them or own them. The roads just aren’t safe for the horse and buggy and the stores are so far apart. I could not imagine our “local” (about 20 minute drive from here) having to travel the roads to our Walmart store. It would take them forever and that poor horses nerves, not to mention the people in the buggy!

    Oh and last but not least, I adore the Amish and would love to take on a lot of their traits, AND I am a Civil War Reenactor! LOL

    Hi Debbie, thanks a bunch for sharing this. It can be a bit boggling I agree.

    There is a book on Amish and Mennonites during the Civil War, I regret that I haven’t read it but you may find it interesting, by James O. Lehman and Steven Nolt: http://www.emu.edu/news/index.php/1537/

    Just wanted to check in and say hello. I was visiting family last week(most of my extended family still live in Daviess County), and we went to Dinky’s on Friday. For my girlfriend, who had never been around Amish, it was a real cultural experience. And, for me it was a great chance to reminisce about the Amish families that I’ve met.

    Hope you’re great.
