The Civil War took place. It was a war between the north and the south but it is not a dishonorable part of American history. Why more than 150 years plus are we trying to eradicate it from our history by denying it happened.
The confederate battle flag which is the one I am used to seeing has never made me uncomfortable. The people who flew this flag made me feel that they were proud of being from the South, nothing more.
I don't associate the confederate flage with the KKK or racism - that ship sailed along time ago. Why are we stirring the pot. The confederate soldiers deserve to rest in piece and any monument that was built to honor these men should be left alone.
The story I learned is that when Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomatox Courthouse he let the men retain their armaments and anything else that was personal to them. He didn't make these people feel ashamed for having fought and lost - why are we trying to do it now. If anyone had the right to be upset about the confederate flag it would have been the Union soldiers and as far as I know that was never an issue - why now?
People need to pay attention to the world today and participate in our government not try to whitewash the civil war - it's been over for a long time - GET A GRIP PEOPLE!
Let's fight the people who are trying to destroy us here that have no allegience to AMERICA.
