God bless all my Southern ancestors that fought for what they believed in, and for their families. They are all heroes to me. They were not lazy liberals or whiny deserters.
They did whatever they had to, in order to survive. They worked for everything that they had, and did not expect others to take care of them.
My ancestors never owned slaves. And...I would never have either...besides the fact that I was not even alive then! And...if I want to fly my Confederate flag alongside my American flag...then that is my choice!! For now, this is America.
This is America, and no one has the right to tell us what kind of flag that we can fly. Some of my ancestors were Rebels and some were Yankees. I love both sides. I honor the heritage of all my ancestors.
