No, it is those who try to eliminate or explain away slavery as the primary source of friction between the north and the south leading to hostilities.

I did not apply modern standards to Lee or Jackson, I merely want the straight facts out there that they did not oppose slavery but rather accepted it, reluctantly or not.   I am not 100% sure in the case of Jackson wheter it was reluctant or not but I am pretty sure in the case of Lee it was not reluctant.
