Very good idea and very deserving!
If they have old King the communist day I'm sure our Confederate heros deserve the same respect!!!

I don't understand the fixation over the War of Northern Aggression in the south. If the Confederates had prevailed, would there still be slavery? Would that be good, in the minds of those who still want to fly the Stars and Bars? And how would history have played out... World War II, for example? Would the CSA have sided with those who proclaimed themselves the master race?

It is a puzzle to me why people spend so much time looking backward. I really would like to know peoples' views on these things.
