|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?
