Just go read this...

...and let me know what you think. I had a whole post ready to go on the subject of this article in The Conservative Voice, but deleted it in fear of my mouth writing checks my butt can't cash.

I read it to Husband, which triggered a discussion. Husband is a big history and military buff (he has a degree in History too), and don't forget, we had to do our homework when we reenacted.

While I can give you a dissertation on 19th century fashion, I'm no military scholar. I know what I believe about the Civil War, you tell me what YOU think after reading this article.

A very interesting article. I read it but don't feel qualified to voice an opinion because, sadly, I am not very knowledgable about the Civil War.

However, it does not surprise me that Lee and Jackson were positioned as "bad" historical figures in history. I mean, look at Clinton. He'll go down as a saint in history despite the truths about him.
Unfortunately, jistory, like everything else, is subject to the biases of those who report or write it.
