It seems like too many people are curious, were never really introduced to the subject or have never taken the time to do their own research because we have so many just pop in for an answer when doing their family tree. Now the subject is getting more press and it's at a time the school systems are starting to put a lid on it and start this nations history at a later date. A whole century later.
We've seen in the Lincoln Papers and other archival materials that he was no saint on the tolerance scale but neither was JFK. How many of our 'hero's' from our youth, Lindberg comes to mind, thought Hitler was onto a good idea? Some can't "handle the truth" such as, Robin Hood was a socialist.
My Son in Law asked me if I was going to see the movie. He was expecting a loud hail no but I told him I probably will but with reservations on it being 'honest'. At the very least, I'd have ammo in case someone brings it up in conversation but I'm not thinking too many people will. That's probably the real problem. It isn't talked about in the open enough with enough tolerance to hear both sides story.
