|Dear Alabama Student of the Conflict: Revisionist history? Exactly; history that sorely needs revising after the propaganda of the past 140 years. Most southerners were poor to middle class non-slaveholders, but you know they did not dare to buck the tide of secessionist umbrage over the election of Lincoln. Some did, especially in Georgia, and many paid the price. Then, as now, we can't run a country with two halves pulling different ways and refusing to compromise.
