Confederate Memorial Day means different things to different people. Some people feel it honors history and those who died in the Civil War. They feel it is patriotic in a way. Other people are bothered by it because they think anything related to the Confederacy stands for racism and slavery.
- Secession was an inalienable right to most Southerners and other Americans as well. Lincoln and his supporters felt differently.
- Of course, ending slavery was a good thing, but it was a by-product of the War, and could have been solved much more civilized as it was in other countries.
- Our ancestors fought, died and lost everything they had for a cause that to us is worth remembering and cherishing.
