Here's a Guy Who Tells It Like It Is-- Part 1: Warts and All

CONFEDERATE HOLIDAY WORTH REMEMBERING

From the Greensboro, N.C. News & Review.

May 10 is Confederate Memorial Day in the Carolinas, but isn't celebrated much anymore.

It is a day for remembering those who died for the South, not celebrating some delusion of white supremacy or a glorious Lost Cause.  The Confederacy became the Confederacy wasn't all that glorious.

Here are some facts about the Confederacy:

1.  The South was deeply divided and in North Carolina, the mountains and Piedmont areas were particularly pro-Union (as were parts of most other Southern states).

2. Lincoln and Davis were really unpopular presidents of their sides.

More to Come.  --Old Secesh
