I simply pointed out that if ALL the blacks in CSA service were in support roles near the battlefield then they
should be viewed as soldiers, Other men white and black
North and South were. I even went so far as to point out instances in my family.
I have no need “to win” or to “feel better.’ I have no need for pandering. If you can prove the OR references wrong. please feel free to do so. I posted I got then from another website and also posted the link.
You were distrustful-- ‘Feel better now “could have simply be left off I know you have well enough command of the English language and I have a well enough understanding of the English language to know when sarcasm is being directed at me.
I do not understand this --- “You seem to view me -- a self-declared Southern nationalist!” Are you saying I appear to be or you view me as such??
I gave you honest answers and references without to everyone sarcasm or insult, and only reply in like fashion when the other party engages in such exchanges. I think I at least deserve the same consideration. I care not who disagrees with what I post as long as they can provide like sources and references, without
cherry picking, that prove me wrong. You challenged the fact of blacks under arms, I took my time to locate more sources to support my point. You again challenged the fact they were only slaves and not armed!!! Now you want to tell me “OK You Win.”
As if to simply pacify me. How about ok I was wrong???
Now you have a full and complete explanation .
See how that comes across???
