Didn't Lee graduate from West Point before becoming a trader to his Country?

He never was a traitor,it was the South's right to secede, according to the Constitution. You and a lot of others should go to Daphne in February,there will be a Historian and several other speakers that will talk about the causes of the "War Between the States", I am sure you will learn some interesting facts they don't teach.

OK, I guess that Benedict Arnold was one of your roll models as well.

What proof can you give me that these speakers are any more credentialed than other historians? It appears that you are willing to buy the line that anyone preaches as long as you agree with it. I demand more proof of authenticity then just someone who is lecturing in Daphne.

Celebrating a guy who lost a war. I will never be able to understand Southerners. Well, I guess they don't have anything else to celebrate now that cotton is no longer king.

That's right, you will never understand it, you are not one of us. What you understand is the lies that have catapulted Lincoln to his hero status, the guy you celebrated, was no better than "Hitler", he gave the order to to kill all Southern people, Men,Women and Children, burn all housing and crops, kill all live stock so there would be no chance of survival for Southern People, he should have been tried as a war criminal. Than we have the other part of the lie which is easy to find and read, Lincoln hated black people,he did not want then to be equal with white's, his plan was to ship them back to where they came from after the war,this is all in the "Lincoln Papers" spoke and wrote by Lincoln. Blacks have been supporting this great lie for yrs.,which shows how the Democrats have pulled the cotton over there eyes,they don't read History, they just continue to believe what the Democratic Party tells them.

It's almost impossible for you to post without comparing something or someone to Hitler, isn't it? You are right about Lincoln in some respects. He wanted to preserve the Nation and free the Blacks from the White Southerners who wanted to divide the Nation. Did you ever hear of any Black that wanted the South to leave the Union. No, this was strictly a Southern Redneck idea and a bad one at that.

"Blacks have been supporting this great lie for yrs.,which shows how the Democrats have pulled the cotton over there eyes,they don't read History, they just continue to believe what the Democratic Party tells them."

Now you are denegrating Blacks by saying that they don't read History. What other groups do you have on your racist' lists? I would say that you and other Southerners don't read history either and just believe whatever Fox tells you.
