Javal,

To put anothr spin on it, how many black slave holders were there in 1861?

I do not want anyone to read my posts and take from them the view that I think the CBF stood for racism. Nor do I want anyone to think I believe southern soldiers were racist.

Racism is a concept that I do not believe existed in the mid 19th century. Once again I say that to take a 19th century practice and view it thru the lens of the 20/21st century is to get a skewed view of history. Unfortunatley, this happens all too often.

 

I hope Booklover will answer the questions I posed a post or so ago.
