The Brave

This is Pickett's Charge, 7/3/1863, Gettysburg. At this moment do you really think it was about slavery? Slavery was a terrible, horrible evil that the United States paid dearly for, especially the South. The way they were treated is unconscionable and we deserved punishment for it (North and South). It was one of the reasons for the Civil War. But the only, all-encompassing reason for the Civil War was the tyranny of the federal government used by the Northern states against the Southern states. Who was sovereign, federal or state? According to the Constitution it was the state. It was a revolution just like the American revolution against the tyranny of England. The South was invaded by an enemy. War was forced on us which is why we call it the War of Northern Aggression. This is what these men fought and died for. This is why they walked across this field into certain death. This is why we commemorate their bravery and courage. Most of them had convictions, not slaves. They had pride of country and kin. They did what they felt they had to do. And they deserve honor and to be remembered which is why Stan is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and I'm a member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. These organizations are not racist but are history preserving organizations.
