Near As I Can Tell:Southern pride and flags on the courthouse

Many southerners are still proud of their flags. They still want them flown at courthouses and other places. They don’t all see them as negative symbols. They feel they are part of their heritage, even the Confederate flag which is the one a lot of people dislike and want removed.

Key Takeaways:

  • Why would tens of thousands of young men rebel against their government when they held no slaves nor benefited directly from slavery or saw no profit?
  • Northerners considered national unity more important than individual state’s rights and they were willing to fight to preserve that union.
  • The truest thing you can say about a Southerner is that they are among the most patriotic and passionate of Americans, and quick to rebel against authority.

“Northerners considered national unity more important than individual state’s rights and they were willing to fight to preserve that union.”
