Reflecting on Confederate Memorial Day

last month

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.

Key Takeaways:

  • 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.

“Our ancestors fought, died and lost everything they had for a cause that to us is worth remembering and cherishing.”
