I'm amazed that it got any coverage at all considering how totally politically incorrect this event is.

I mean, black slaves volunteering to fight for The Cause? That can't be true, can it?

Not in the fantasy world of those who have rewritten our history, no. There were no free blacks, either, and no blacks who were slaveowners. Everything's about the "white guilt" of people who probably aren't even descendants of slaveowners, at least not for a thousand years.

Our local independent weekly news, "The County Edge," put this event on the front page, but the kids took it and I didn't see it until too late. It was in the Monroe daily, too. History hasn't been changed much around here :-).
