CommentsCalvin, keep educating Americans, particularly Southerners, who have been brainwashed by the liberal Federal education system and all of the other liberal liars who are mainly from the north, since many Southerners have forgotten or not learned the pride of Southern history. I have cousins in Atlanta who were turned yankee when they went to northern, supposedly elite, schools. We Southerners must remember the valor of our ancestors as people the world over revere theirs. The politically correct are working endlessly during the sesquicentennial to rewrite history. Telling the truth as you do helps counter the lies.

The war between the States was a problem in my mind which I could not resolve, so I studied and studied and studied.
What I learned did not please me in that so many of the “modern” history books gave such a twisted report of that war.
Those of the South who served their people with honor are many, and as I read of them and their conduct, I was impressed by their faithfulness. I know from family history how the "Slaves" on an ancestors farm were the very people who rescued them from the "Carpet Baggers" following the "Civil" war. I learned how their "masters" took care of their "slaves" and how, when one of their family was sick, one of the "slave" women would take care of them, but if one of the "slaves" became ill, the doctor was called to bring them back to health. I do not wonder that so many of them took their "slave owners" name because they truly loved them. Don't see that in the "modern" "history" books do you. Nor do you read of the many who came to this country as indentured slaves so that they could become Americans.
We now face that same lying, cheating, thieving enemy once again, and will the people know what they are doing or will the unscrupulous amongst us succeed in their quest to enslave mankind?

Confederate History and Heritage Month
Did you know that the first Memorial Day in America was held in the South in honor of both the soldiers of Union Blue and Confederate Gray?
Some folks call the War Between the States, 1861-1865, a lost cause but stories of the heroic—brave men and women who stood for Southern Independence are still cherished in the hearts and souls of many people throughout the South.
Why do people remember?More...
