Where bad choices make good stories
I admire Stonewall Jackson for his military abilities. We visited his house in Virginia and to me it was a thrill. Does that make me a racist? The answer is a resounding no although there are people that would say that it does. And therein lies part of the problem in this country right now.
You're goddamned right you're a racist! And the more you claim that BLM is itself racist, the more racist you are! Black racism is non-existent, we all know that! Except for all the black racism.

Thanks Ken for posting that jewel; although I've read a great deal on the American Civil War, it's always a treat to see a production so well made and accurate.It saddens me that in a few short years these American giants (in character and spirit) will be gone forever. Generations will lose the ability to learn how great some of our forefathers were and their enormous sacrifices.Cheers
