Confederates were Americans too. Let us not forget that they died fighting for “another” America, though one with a nearly identical vision, and they lie buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. They were fighting for their country to remain free under their own constitution which was written remarkably similar to the original U.S. Constitution.
Descendents of these same Confederates then rose again and helped defeat the Nazis, to whom they by some are unjustly compared. At this very moment, yet another generation of Confederates is fighting on the other side of the globe against terrorists. Anyone knowledgeable of history should be disturbed by the comparison of the Confederacy to the Nazis. Anyone from the South should be deeply offended. The Nazis had the murderous SS. The Confederates had “good ol’ boys.”
I saw a ghost behind the door, when the kids were coming home from the war, with broken dreams and nothing more!
