    In the 1870s and 1880s, the decoration of Confederate graves with flowers and flags and celebratory speeches and parades increasingly signaled a commitment to what came to be called the "Lost Cause," a decidedly partisan and self-consciously politicized account of the Civil War.

    It's amazing how most people forget or are simply ignorant about the negroes that had also fought and died for the Southern cause.

    Thank you for showing those pictures of Black Americans who also served in the Civil War. I knew about it and I'm sure a lot of other people do too. I just get so tired of Blacks and Whites who don't like each other and what I want to know is why? We are all human beings who live on this earth together and when there is a major disaster then we forget that we are different..but why does it take something like that to bring us together? Fortunately, I live in a neighborhood where the people both Black and White could care less about the color of our skin...we are there for each other no matter what!! God is so good!!:clap2:

    So what point are you trying to make?

    Slavery was acceptable because the south had black troops?

    Do you think those slaves were ordered to fight for their masters?

    It's a possibility since they lived in a time when they did not have a voice. They could not speak up for themselves and the family dog was treated better than they were. So if the master told them they had to fight in that war, what would their answer be but, "Yeah, massah".?

    or afraid of their masters and felt they had no choice

    or indoctrinated and brainwashed

    one can also find jews who worked with hitler

    to the typical conservative......the only BAD slavery is the IMAGINARY slavery that cons believe they are being subjected to by liberals, democrats and obama

    they have no problem with enslaving other people...

    Silly comment. Very, very few blacks "fought and died" for master race democracy, whereas more than 33 thousand died for the North.

    I think of JFK's comment about all of us inhabiting a "small planet" when I read lunacy such as WJ's.
