What the South Fought For - A Confederate Soldier is Interviewed
I stumbled upon an interview of a Civil War (Confederate) soldier. I found it very fascinating and after listening to it I kind of wish the South would have won the war. It also paints a different picture from what we were taught in school.

For the current self absorbed/narcissistic age this man must seem like an alien from another planet. The human race is doomed.

Re: What the South Fought For - A Confederate Soldier is Interviewed
A book that will really stir you is "Memoirs of Service Afloat" by Confederate Admiral Raphael Semmes of the CSS Alabama.

The first quarter of the book is a very compelling case for the ECONOMIC STRANGLEHOLD theory of secession and the war, and the rest reads like a very compelling travel log-- interspersed with some fighting, ship seizures and torchings, etc., of course.

Very well worth the read as well, from a gentleman/scholar officer/sailor.

 Quoting: Hitchcock Frank


EVERY Native American tribe sided with the Confederacy.

The Koshers sided with the Confederacy.

Slavery was still legal in some states in New England until the EARLY 20TH CENTURY!!!

The biggest slaveholder was a black.

In some states, there were MORE white Irish slaves than there were black slaves.

The "Rebel Flag" is NOT the Confederate Flag. It is the Flag of the Army of Northern Virginia.

The real Confederate Flag looked similar to the State Flag of Texas.

Public Schools = stupidity centers.
AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM:

KICKING ASS, KILLING NAZIS, KILLING COMMIES, MAKING BABIES, BUILDING CITIES, EXPLORING SPACE, GOING TO THE MOON, AND PUTTING THE "CIVIL" IN CIVILIZATION SINCE 1776!

******************************

But I tell you this man, I tell you this, I carry an aura of "fuck you" everywhere I go and while I may not cause scenes I can sure as hell continue them and escalate them but good.

******************************

There is going to be a second revolution folks.

Count on it - and it will be the citizens against the government.

It will be damn bloody. It will be a war of attrition. It will result in over 100 million dead.

The heavy handedness of the government - the fascists in code enforcement and animal control especially - have brought this upon themselves.

I love teaching civil war history, The best question you can ever ask anyone that doesn't know what they need to know is,
If the South was fighting for slavery do you honestly think that 99% of southerners were fighting for the 3% that owned slaves? Or were they fighting for economic freedom?
I've yet to see an honest answer to my question from anyone because it's an absurd notion at best!
