I agree with Boots....Even up north, there is a "feeling" against Southerners.....perhaps the feeling is caused by stereotypes, i.e. lazy hillbilly, corn-pone humor, white trash, etc. Could this have been fueled by TV shows like "Hee Haw", "The Beverly Hillbillies", and the humor of Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, et al??....Did these TV shows provide an easier reason to have "feelings" that overshadow the historical, social and economic reasons for the Civil War?

I also agree that the school system is to blame for not accurately teaching the War, nor does it provide enough detail about the war. Of course, this could be said for any school subject......
