Well your extreme bias is on display for all to see. I wouldn’t trust your account of any historical subject.
...and then someone has to come along and say stupid shit like what you just did.
You poor apologists for the democrat party of slavery, secession, and the KKK. The Confederacy and the democrat party lost. Get over it. Do you support the Constitution or do you cling to the lost democrat cause?
The b.s. rape, pillage, and burn crap was and is post-confederate democrat propaganda. Grant, along with Sherman, were warriors who overcame the political lies about alcoholism and insanity to win restore the Constitution. Is that what makes you so bitter? They restored the supremacy Constitution.
Lee was an honorable man and a great general who was given every bit of the respect he deserved from Grant. He resumed his life as an American citizen and urged all to put aside any enmity and be the best citizens they could be.
Some, unfortunately, to this day would rather be bitter democrats.
