Well thats just dumb, equating ones liberal or conservative outlook on the world to the institution of slavery. But this is the south so I expect nothing better than to read your drival.

It has been estimated that over 65,000 Southern blacks were in the Confederate ranks.

Oh heel no.(desperate people do desperate things). The North "enlisted blacks" for a somewhat similar reason but whos motive I'm sure was entirely different.

"Every one should do all in his power to collect and disseminate the truth, in the hope it may find a place in history and descend to posterity. History is not the relation of campaigns, and battles, and generals or other individuals, but that which shows the principles for which the South contended and which justified her struggle for those principles." -- General Robert E. Lee

Hundreds of thousands of blacks were freedmen and many of them owned slaves---a topic that few hand wringers will discuss.

If you work take a look at your pay stub and see how much you pay in federal taxes, state taxes, FICA and Medicare to pay for the dead weight of society that you are supporting.

You are a slave and until the liberals wake up they will only pay more and more, rather like the increasing number of people with brains that are now starting to renounce their US citizenship and leave the new socialist empire (like one of the Facebook founders recently did).

YOU ARE A POOR MISINFORMED, BRAINWASHED INDIVIDUAL JUST LIKE 75% OF THE POOR MISINFORMED POPULOUS.. The war was not fought over slavery.. It was fought for independance state rights from a tyrannical gvt. who were being imposed a tax on the farming South.. There were more slaves in the North at the onset of the war..and your biggest biggot was ABE.. Do a little research before you spew your untruths..

Celebrating the birthdays of two great Confederate Generals should not be an issue. They were a big part of our southern heritage. Today we will celebrate the birthday of Michael King, AKA Martin Luther King Jr., who is also a major part of our US history. His message will live forever and history will eventually forget about his love for the women. Especially while he was married. I guess that is also a part of our southern heritage since many reverends, both white and black, enjoyed it.

Thank you for this story. Lee Jackson Day is largely ignored these days in the media.It's a state holiday, but school is in session. And even back when there was one combined holiday (Lee-Jackson-King Day) there was no mention of either Lee or Jackson in elementary schools. How ignorant to think it "honors" slavery. It's history. Lets not rewrite, or ignore, history to appease anyone.

States right to engage in slavery. The US was behind the curve in human rights then and still behind the curve in social progression. Its perseption that is the question and perseption in the south is in the sewer.

Will, schools locally closed for Lee-Jackson Day. At least this type of event could be held in Waynesboro. In Charlottesville it would have been protested as all they want to talk about is removing their statues to Lee and Jackson.

the truth of the matter is: the Civil War did happen and General Robert E. Lee and General Stonewall Jackson were the key figures. We cannot and should not rewrite history as though it did not happen. Just as we hear the Holocaust did not happen. Yes, it did. We learn from the past. As for slavery, yes i am sorry it happened. However, I nor my family Never owned any slaves. So why must those that never owned any slaves have to pay for those that did? Why must it be that if you are white you owned slaves? I bet if you asked 1000 US americans if they owned a slave they would tell you no. i dont know anyone who owned a slave. How many Americans living now WERE slaves? These things must be put in the proper perspective. My grand daughter gave me something to think about years ago. She told me "I hate black history month" I asked her why, there was so much to learn. She replied "my best friend no longer likes me because I am white and wont talk to me". Now that is something to make you think, isnt it? is this something to be proud of? So many of our young African American youth carry hatred and resentment because of slavery which was in the PAST. So sad. Dont change history, learn from it.
