E-Mail of the Day

More

Heh:


"Battle Cry of Freedom" was your first mistake. It was written by a yankee who grew up with yankee soldiers trying to justify their destruction, murder, rape and pillage of the South. Why not read the ACTUAL "Official Records" compiled by the US gov't or listen to the actual BLACKS in the slave narratives of the 1930's? Rather than re-hashed "stories" of biased information? Question WHY federal museums are required to tell "slavery first" at the entrance door yet - as in Gettysburg museum misquote Southerners? 

Southerners - no matter the "color" support each other. You yanks and yankee sympathizers can't stand that after 150 years we all still stand agaisnt your falsehoods.

It's funny, I don't ever get hate-mail--and I don't know that this qualifies. But certainly the most angry e-mails I get are about the Civil War.
