Confederate soldiers were NOT terrorist. The Battle Flag was hijacked by a group who used it for dishonorable reasons. That Battle Flag is very dear to many of us of Confederate roots and we want it back.
The 'historian' made one little error. He said the :"Donnie" Blue Flag was another that could be used. It was the Bonnie Blue Flag. Guess he learned his history in reconstructed textbooks.
It was not all about slavery but the government has been very diligent about spreading that myth and it won't go away. We have the right to celebrate our unique history as much as any other. At least tell the whole truth. Most soldiers that were in the Confederate Army did NOT own slaves. There were many in the United States Army who did.
It seems as if CNN is just not doing any fact checks. No surprise there
