Lt Colonel Ralph Peters describes the current orchestrated uproar over the Confederate flag and the latest development, the recognition of Confederate generals being challenged, as the left trying to rewrite our history, to erase the history they don’t like and rewrite it by putting Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill.
Peters says, “As someone who’s studied the Civil War since childhood, literally for over a half a century, I’m a Yankee, born and bred. I’ll be a Yankee until I die, but I have come to admire enormously the valor and tenacity of the Confederate infantrymen.”
He continues, “And let me tell you, the Confederate enlisted men did not have slaves.
They fought for a wide variety of reasons; because it was their state, because their homes, because it seemed like a good idea at the time, that their friends were joining, because it was a chance to get away from a hard scrabble life for a few years. It was much more complicated than just slavery although slavery certainly lay at the heart of secession.”
