I have a problem believing that the every day poor white working farmer who had no slaves would fight a war and die to preserve slavery.  I have to believe that there was a greater ideal at stake for all those individuals to fight for.  I despise what the hate groups have done to present the CBF as a racist symbol, but I cannot abandon the Cause it represents because people misrepresent what it  (the flag) stood for.  I have a question.  Why was the CBF composed of a St. Andrews Cross?  Was the CW a holy war?  Was the difference in Northern and Southern religions a cause to war?  Did I just open a can of worms?
