I had surgery last week so I ordered some used books to keep me busy. These two volumes must have the words "lawsuit", "lawyer", "court". "judge", "patent" listed at least 100 times in each book. I know one guy who can"t stand to see "McCormick" on any of his red equipment. I"m not prone to this way of thinking. It was a good history lesson since I sold my Red tractor and didn"t know much about that "McCormick" decal on it. Hussey and McCormick really butted heads.

It is that, a few other books on McCormick as well such as the Century of the Reaper. I wrote a term paper on them while I was an undergrad. Professor was amazed how the reaper pushed mechanized farming.
