So what’s wrong? Shouldn’t I be offended as well?
In a way, yes. I am. And here’s why:
I had ancestors who fought on both sides of that war – which was anything but civil.
Yes, in Northern Mississippi in fact. Cousin against cousin. One man trying to protect what was his, and one who escaped slavery only to be drafted into taking his cousin’s land away. This little fact, along with all the arguments about Southern Heritage, Southern Pride, and Remembering the Gentlemen who died in that war gets lost in all the noise about why it’s so “insensitive.”
And I am just fed up with it.
More than that, I’m fed up with the yellow bellied white guys who don’t have the guts to fight back on the issue.
