Vestiges of the Old South
Ms. Trout,If your recent column is a sample of your understanding of American history, North and South, I would suggest you keep you comments brief lest you continue to incite hatred between the races.If you have not visited the 5th Avenue Presbyterian Church in your home town of Roanoke, I invite you to set aside time for a visit.Ask the Pastor how a black congregation paid for and dedicated this beautiful stained glass mural almost 100 years ago to "Stone Wall Jackson"- a Confederate General!My wife is from the OSAGE Nation of Plains Indians. When a final head count (headright) was taken by the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs in 1929 there were only 2,229 men, women & children who answered the roll.I wonder what happened to these aboriginal people.Extermination was the answer; just read the records of Union General Sherman and Custer et al.The head of the Minnesota abolitionist movement (a woman) said the answer to the "Indian problem" was "extermination of every man, women, and child " they almost succeeded!If the TRUE record that is ignored by our children's history books (written by the victors) could be told, even Lincoln would not be anything but a footnote and described as the white supremacist and racist he was-just read his 1858 speeches and even those AFTER he declared war on a people who simply; as our President Davis wrote, wanted nothing but to be " left alone".The truth is a terrible swift sword but it takes courage, morality and unyielding dedication to that principal to wield its weight.Are you up to the task?
Learn the truth, please!From: rodbren@...
----- Original Message -----
My ancestor was a Confederate Major who was imprisoned three times and managed to survive. He also enslaved 64 human beings on his farm in Mississippi. In 1961 I was dressed up in pantaloons and a hoop skirt and paraded in the Civil War Centennial celebration in my hometown with many others waving a tiny Confederate flag. So if anybody has a right to proclaim heritage, I do. HOWEVER, I have more than a split second of unease when I see a Confederate flag. I absolutely hate it for a zillion reasons. I also hate that there has never been an official national apology for slavery. So I'd just like to take this opportunity to share with you that it is not JUST African Americans who are offended. I am lily white, Southern born and reared and a true Confederate descendant and you can call me what you like, but I won't put myself in the same class with the Klukkers and the Neo-Confederates for any amount of money. My ancestors were wrong.
Dear Jane Doe (?),
Ma'am, please do some real research. Your knowledge of the so-called Civil War is truly pathetic. For your information, true Confederate-minded individuals are interested in restoring constitutional government, resisting tyranny, and preserving Southern heritage. The Confederate flag represents those things; it has never been about slavery and bigotry except by those who have misused it.
Would it do any good to point out to you that slavery existed in the United States under the Stars and Stripes for over eight decades? Would it do any good to tell you that many slave ships flew the US flag, but none flew the Confederate flag? Would it do any good to mention that, more often than not, the favorite flag of white supremacist groups is the US flag? Would it do any good to enlighten you that the South was not fighting for slavery, but was fighting for constitutional government and the fact that the North invaded? Would it make any difference to you that slavery was not made unconstitutional in the US until eight months after the war? Naw, I didn't think it would. People like you have an aversion to the truth if it threatens your favorite myths and illusions. Wake up, ma'am, and get a dose of truth. I dare you to read The South Was Right! by James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy.
"Itâs not a flag that I look at with anything favorable. Thatâs for sure."
