April is an interesting choice for a Confederate History Month.  It was in April that our brothers in S.C. fired on Ft. Sumter, starting the war that devastated our Southland.  It was in April, the next year, that Shiloh was fought, an event not good for the South's cause.  In April 1864 Sherman was readying his destructive move into Georgia and, finally to the sea.  In April 1865 -- well we all know what happened then and it happened in Virginia.  Yes, it's an interesting decision to name April as Confederate History Month.
