"but wasn't General Wade Hampton III the richest man in the South because he had the most slaves of anyone in the South? And wasn't he one of those who most vehemently opposed Patrick Cleburne's proposal to arm and emancipate male slaves and their families if they would fight for the Confederacy?"  

Hee-hee - see what I said about Wade III being the most politically incorrect man to mention?  And that he represents all that is hated about The Old South?

There is a reason I rarely mention my admiration for him.  Yes, he is the poster boy for all that was bad about The Old South, and I do not deny that.

He also had many fine personal qualites which I respect. 

It's like with NB Forrest, only worse,=+++!
