My opinion is they are not quiet, and they accomplish nothing, but to each his/her/its own.

Silent? If Peirs Morgan is an example of 'SILENT', I'd like to hear what NOISY is. Fact is, lib agenda demands that lib-lovers spout TP, shout over their opponents and insult them, precisely when they know they're LOSING THE ARGUMENT and backed into a corner by sheer LOGIC.

I remember distinctly why I refuse to watch MSNBC. It's not the political agenda, it's their incessant verbal battery on their guests, making watching it a MISERY. If I wanna hear a bunch of kids shouting each other down, I'll head to the playground. Adults should not act that way. And they do it all the time, which demolishes their credibility. They are not civil.

The steady rise of ethnic nationalism over the past decade, the replacing of history with mendacious and sanitized versions of lost glory, is part of the moral decay that infects a dying culture. It is a frightening attempt, by those who are desperate and trapped, to escape through invented history their despair, impoverishment and hopelessness. It breeds intolerance and eventually violence. Violence becomes in this perverted belief system a cleansing agent, a way to restore a lost world. There are ample historical records that disprove the myths espoused by the neo-Confederates, who insist the Civil War was not about slavery but states’ rights and the protection of traditional Christianity. But these records are useless in puncturing their self-delusion, just as documentary evidence does nothing to blunt the self-delusion of Holocaust deniers. Those who retreat into fantasy cannot be engaged in rational discussion, for fantasy is all that is left of their tattered self-esteem. When their myths are attacked as untrue it triggers not a discussion of facts and evidence but a ferocious emotional backlash. The challenge of the myth threatens what is left of hope. And as the economy unravels, as the future looks bleaker and bleaker, this terrifying myth gains potency.

Achilles V. Clark , a soldier with the 20th Tennessee Cavalry under Forrest during the 1864 massacre at Fort Pillow, wrote to his sister after the attack:“The slaughter was awful. Words cannot describe the scene. The poor deluded negroes would run up to our men, fall upon their knees, and with uplifted hands scream for mercy but they were ordered to their feet and then shot down.… I, with several others, tried to stop the butchery, and at one time had partially succeeded, but General Forrest ordered them shot down like dogs and the carnage continued. Finally our men became sick of blood and the firing ceased.”t

Nice copy and paste job Moe. I was wondering how long it would take you. We won't even go into the fact that it has absolutely nothing to do with this thread.

A detail I left out of my original story that I found interesting was that when my grandfather (4 greats) traveled to settle in KY, he brought only 3 slaves with him. A woman and her two sons. He had purchased the slaves from a Cherokee Indian master. The two sons were half Cherokee. Until reading this book, I did not realize that Native Americans had slaves, but that is probably because it isn't talked about much.

Though somewhat controversial, depending on which side you are on, the book is an interesting read for sure. Glad you enjoyed it.
My family was in TN,GA,KY and SC. There were slaves, sad to say.

Nothing we can do to change the past. What year did your family come to the Indy area? Just curious.

I have family in Glasgow but mostly from the next county south of there. Monroe County, specifically on the Cumberland River closer to the TN state line.

That is interesting. I remember hearing about a large population of Native Americans during the early years of settlement in that area.
