As It Should Be

The re-enactment of 150th anniversary of the swearing in of Jefferson Davis as President of the Confederacy in Montgomery, Alabama, came and went with little fanfare and disturbance...which is as it should be.

The way I look at the sesquicentennial of the Civil War is that everyone should be able to commemorate it in their own way and at their own cost and effort. If you don't like one group (as is the case with NAACP not liking the SCV (Sons of Confederate Veterans), then ignore it.

I am sure hoping that blacks do have some commemorations planned as I would sure like to find out more about their heritage from the war, particularly the USCT and sailors.

It would also be great if the press did not automatically side with the NAACP's racist views of the war and position.
