|Sounds like all you want to do Indy is tear me down and attack the South. I am not changing the subject, and if you are referring to me as a neo-Confederate I find that very offensive. And do you really think that 25 percent of families owned slaves in Arkansas, the poorest and most undeveloped state in the South? I've read that it was closer to 10 percent, but maybe I'm wrong. I'm not going to say something I don't have any evidence of. Arkansas was mostly made up of white farming families in poverty, who intially opposed secession, but when it came the majority joined the Confederate armies and died by the thousands. That's a good reason to keep the Confederate flag alive. I don't know how you know for sure he didn't make the quote--I guess you were just there. The quote is on sonofthesouth.net.
