Booklover,
well said...for the most part...
I agree that "pure History" is never right. I also know the winner always gets to write the history, and being humans, that history is always flawed. Did the CBF ALWAYS stand for southern racism? I am not so sure. Why was the battleflag used? Who used it during the war? What buildings did it adorn? Was it ever an official flag adopted by the CSA or was it a soldier's flag?.... Specifically the flag of the ANV. Was racism even a recognized concept during the war era, or are we attributing a 20th/21st concept to a 19th century event?
