The politically correctness I see on this BB being expounded, too often comes from the Southern slant.
I am one who can see that the South was right & WRONG? Am I the only one who can Praise Jeff Davis for his courage while in captivity, but have my blood run cold when I think of him putting Hood in charge of the AoT. (Remember troops exclaiming "God D---n Jeff Davis, God bless Joe Johnston!")
Folk think that Lee was absolutely correct for being up at Gettysburg, while I think that Davis and crew should have listened to Longstreet and move troops (and better leadership) to help out Vicksburg!
I believe the South was completely unprepared for war, and should not have jumped into the rashness of firing on FT. Sumter. I also believe the Northern folk should have seen the corner they were pushing the South into! The North PUSHING for change, the South NOT accepting it.
Its political correctness when "The South never fought to keep slavery" is quoted to me ad-nauseum, by too many who simply don't read their history.
In short, I see a real need for posters on this BB to realize there is too much of the other side of things not being sought out. I have run the gauntlet of being caught up in the "South was right" till I read history, of thinking Lincoln was the "Great Emancipator" till I read history...
Am I the only one posting here that can understand folk's negative feelings towards the Battle Flag, AND understand those who revere it?
We need more objectivity!
