Default Re: Why Is Virginia's Governor Still Fighting the Civil War ?

all good points above....even with the sarcasm and flippancy, which i like anyway. maybe, just maybe, we should get rid of all the "whatever whatever history months" and just teach history, as x-terminator mentioned, warts and all, in context, and let people decide for themselves what they want to think or feel.

Come on Urgle, people are not allowed to think or decide for themselves, everyone knows that

I have to agree with XT, it is a part of American History and has to be remembered and taught. We, as a nation, cannot just bury the ugly parts of our history and only remember and celebrate the "pretty" parts. Whether I agree with parts of our history or not, it all needs to be remembered and taught.

i agree that the civil war needs to be taught in its whole but growing up in the south and have attended middle, high school, and college in the south (moved from western pa in 85 to atlanta) it is not just taught but the "war of northern aggresion" is romanticize down here. a person would think that Robert E Lee was the greatest american to ever live and Grant was the devil himself. The state of georiga did not have a post reconstruction republican governor until 7 years ago thanks to Lincoln.

Correct. We Jews just love it when post Nazi anything makes the news... The louder they scream... the weaker they become. The less they scream... the less they will grow. So it all balances out...
