Your apology need not be given. I have come from the History Channel were the people on a number of times were out right rude and wouldn't share or listen to any view that was different from theirs. What I wrote then is based on past problems so forgive me and if the shoe doesn't fit, please don't try to ware it.
What I get tire of is the belief that for all the people of an area there was one and only one reason to go to war. As I stated that someone could read our minds why we fight or still fight that war. I'll will always defend the section as long as there are poeple who have been made to feel shame for where they were born. As to belief, in this country there are now about 3.25 miillion people and I would say there are about 3.25 views on the President from out right love to down right hate.
I have to be aware that this isn't the Civil War board of the History Channel and that this maybe much better group of honest people who will listen.
As to the songs, I have repeated what I have heard and believed to be true. Now it maybe a good thing to check into to really find out the facts. Howe's Battle Hymn was written in about 20 minutes the night after Bull Run.
Oh, I don't really dislike Yankees. They are after all my country men, but sometimes I find they don't like me.
Being foolish is what I am also very good at being. That in itself is a right and I darn well do a good job of it.
I have found things that point to other causes then slavery for this conflict. And I have been called a liar and a neo-Confederate, as in neo Nazis and other names just because I have a love for my family, my state, my section, and my country. But some of what has gone on says the country doesn't return that love. Not trying to pluck heart strings, just stating what I have gone through.
This maybe a chance for real work to be done and real understand reached for all. I don't dislike anyone, AND if I err it is my information maybe wrong. I would like to see the information. I was told one day by a person that the House of the Rising Sun was sung by Muddy Waters in 1930's and it was his song. I found out that it was around as early as 1865 maybe, and it was first put on a record in the 1920's by two white guys in Tenn. So there is a great deal of information out there, which is right
And one last thing, thank you for being so nice...It is refreshing to find people who might be willing to listen and discuss.
