Don’t be fooled–the Confederacy was pro-slavery!
If you haven’t been over to Kevin Levin’s invaluable and fearless blog Civil War Memory, get over there now! If anyone is dedicated to blasting myths about the Civil War and the ideology of the Confederacy, it’s Kevin. The work he does is risky, because a lot of people have a lot at stake in trying to tell us that the Confederate South loved black Americans and treated enslaved black people with more love and kindness than you have for your own children today.
But it’s not true, and Kevin proves that in every post. Thanks, Kevin, and keep it up!
