And today those descendants are being heard. They do not want those monuments in their communities and want them removed.What I call “The South” had 40 percent of its population in bondage. The Confederacy was created to keep those people in bondage.What you call "the South", was hundreds of thousands of human beings, mostly CIVILIANS. mostly dirt poor, didn't own a slave, never saw one, and lucky if they owned a horse. Civil war battlefield photos show southern, barefoot civilians lying next to their rifles. They knew NOTHING WHATSOEVER about slavery or the Confederacy, and probably didn't even know black people existed.The South fought to defend the Confederacy
A nation formed to preserve slavery in their new nation forever.
This nation had 40 percent of its population in slavery. The Confederacy was built out of HATRED of the USA.
Why would any loyal American defend it?
The only thing they were defending, was their families, their homes, their towns. How many times does this need to be said, to get that into your dense heads ?
Some civilians in coastal plain areas (a small %) who managed to find out about the Confederacy, and joined it, upon receiving their uniforms (boots & all), were often heard saying" This is the best suit of clothes I've ever owned."
When leftists talk about the Civil War, all they do is repeat the mantra their masters program into them, and dupe them to. Lots of examples right here in this thread. Displays of ignorance.
Not something worth celebrating
Nobody asked that 40 percent of that population or their descendants whether celebrating the Confederacy was appropriate. Nor did anyone in power care
They can go home if they don't like it
You are more than welcome to go with them.
If you don’t like it, you can leave
