...how long will it be when the usual trolls come out getting their digs in and fight the war over again...

Is there really a need to label people 'trolls'?

Troll this, troll that, it's all we ever hear from the left when defending the Union side of the Civil War.

Sorry, no intent to label.

What non-judgmental term do you prefer for CSA apologists? I will be glad to use it.

BTW, I am not anti-southern. I think the demonization of the southern heritage is destructive and much of it aimed indirectly at today’s America and American conservatives.

I honor the Confederate soldier, who fought as bravely as any man in history, against great odds. However, I agree with Grant that the cause for which he fought, whether he realized it or not, was among the worst in history.

I understand, with Lincoln, the trap the South was in in 1860 and the desperation it felt. I believe many if not most of the southern people and leaders were honest in their belief slavery was a good thing that should be preserved and that it was necessary to their way of life.

I believe they were wrong, but honestly mistaken.

The only southern group I consider despicable are the fire-eaters who intentionally, out of hatred, greed and ambition stoked the fires of sectional bitterness. Those who labored to convince their fellows that slavery was good and produce philosophical justification for it.

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness.”
