How about a Memorial Day reality check?

Via Jonathan

Memorial Day

Those who fought and died (over 364,000) in Lincoln’s Army died invading another sovereign nation, the Confederate States of America. The CSA, who lost over 139,000 soldiers, was defending itself from the aggression of a foreign nation. It would have been no different morally if the Northern Army would have invaded Canada. So, Northern mourners should remember the shame of the North, not just that their loved ones died in battle. And Southerners should forever laud their sons who valiantly died in an attempt to thwart a foreign invasion and protect their homeland.

(As an aside…looks to me like the Southern boys were far better shots than the Yankees. The numbers above show the South at a nearly 3:1 advantage in killing Yankees.)

  1. 4:1 would have been better. But we'll have to settle for 3:1. Plus one ( +1 ) vile Tyrant.

    1. If JWB had been successful in his kidnap attempt of the Tyrant in 1864, things may well have turned out differently.

  2. We still have "Decoration Day" here in northwest Alabama. I should say days because some churches have their memorial day on the "first Sunday in May" or the second Sunday or the last Sunday in April, etc. Still, the author is correct in regards to the origins. God Save the South!
