    Most Confederate soldiers owned no slaves.

    The civil war was over 147 years ago.
    Folk that fly the stars and bars NOW, CURRENTLY fly it with NO connection whatsoever with the war between the states.
    147 years later. The civil war IS LONG OVER.

    He doesn't care about accuracy or truth, he has an agenda full of hate that he gets off on trying to push. I doubt that he will ever try and educate himself on the subject, he doesn't want to challenge his own point of view with the facts.

    Listen jackwagon I am not the one delving in to romatic ideals about slave owning confederates. It doesn't matter if the men in the trenches owned slaves cause if they were confederates the fought to protect the fat ass racist democrat fucks who did..... It wasnt freedom or liberty that the confederates were about it was slavery and facism. They perverted the cause of state rights to further evil slaving ways. That's history, that's the Fucking truth.

    Ever fought in a war?
    Warriors, men in the trenches and the front lines do not give a shit about any ideology.
    They fight for survival.
    Do you really believe the soldiers in the civil war, WWI, WWII, Korea and specifically Viet Nam cared JACK SHIT about any political ideology when fighting in the trenches?
    "I am fighting for slavery" is what you believe the southern Confederate had in mind when he led a charge in battle.
    He could have cared less.
    Flag is another issue altogether. Get real my brother. I know.

    Some enlist for more noble reasons. Some for less noble reasons.

    You could almost argue they fought for the Union granted Constitutional right to secede.
