Is that some Conservatives, whom I agree with on issue after issue, have a lack of understanding about the War Between the States, the causes of it, and the history of it. frankly, I expect historical ignorance from Liberals, but from Conservatives? No, I do not expect that, not at all. Here is a video you should watch that will challenge many of the pre-conceived notions you may have about the War Between the States. After you watch it, check out the new blog that Stogie has started Confederate Gray
As I said, it breaks my heart that so many, including some Conservatives look at the war as nothing more than a fight against, or for slavery. It breaks my heart that so many view the common Confederate soldier as nothing more than the enemy of freedom somehow. It breaks my heart that the history has been taught in such an atrocious manner in many cases. It breaks my heart that my ancestors, who fought for their homes and freedom are often demonized. And yes, it breaks my heart that Lincoln is lionized as a hero who “saved” America, and that his violations of the Constitution are heralded as wonderful and necessary by the same folks who are today, struggling beside me to preserve our beloved Constitution.
