Tom,

Thanks, I agree this is a interesting thread. I think much of the problem we in the North have understanding Southern pride is we do not think in the same terms about this period they do. IMHO people in the South have more pride in their leaders and cause then the North. Many Southern leaders, Lee, Jackson, Stuart, Davis, and just about any other leader are held in higher regarded than any leader in the North by its' people. The South holds its' leaders in immortal status and its' cause a rightous one.Northern people seem to only have a high regard for a relative who fought and the unit they belonged to and not much caring about the cause they fought for. I am only saying the majority, not everyone. I think this leads to misunderstanding Southern pride.

Respectfully
