Posted on 08/28/2013 8:03:18 PM PDT by NKP_Vet
This is the untold story of the Union's "hard war" against the people of the Confederacy. Styled the "Black Flag" campaign, it was agreed to by Lincoln in a council with his generals in 1864. Cisco reveals the shelling and burning of cities, systematic destruction of entire districts, mass arrests, forced expulsions, wholesale plundering of personal property, and even murder of civilians. Carefully researched largely from primary sources, this examination also gives full attention to the suffering of Black victims of Federal brutality.

This country isn’t torn up enough. Let’s tear off 150 year old scabs. The more we hurt the better.
Southerners have to listen daily to people in the media who slander their ancestors., and they never get tired of it.
If someone dares to put the lie to a lot of it, you can depend on a bunch even here on FR to come in and lie like crazy. For that reason I usually do not even post or just post once.
The Threadnaught has cleared the harbor. Setting course to anywhere, speed 14 knots.
Ya lost. After 150 years you should stop crying about it.
There was no point in posting this in the first place.
I was just going to not post but I did want to reply. Yes we lost but at the end there were twice as many dead Yankees as Rebels.
This should be an interesting thread.
I am a southerner, and I argue pro-South on these threads, however, I also believe there is no civility in war, no “war crimes” possible. War is Hell. If you don’t like war then do not wage war, and you had best fight to win.
I fully believe the north provoked the fight. I fully believe the south was prepared to engage in war as well if need be. But again, war is a no holds barred fight to exterminate the enemy. It was a war.
Well at least ya got that going for ya. Which is nice.
Might sell a book or two.
Sometimes as I sit overlooking the gulf dining on some of the finest seafood and local beers watching Alabama football and also her women I have to wonder...
And that is our national goal isn’t it?
God Bless you. God Bless us all.
“Yes we lost but at the end there were twice as many dead Yankees as Rebels.”
Listen, if you and I can keep an Amazon employee actually employed for 29.5 hours per week, who cares what books he’s loading?
Amen my brother, I’ll save you some shrimp...
That’s the point. We are brothers. Why in the world are we still kicking each other in the head?
Victimology is the left’s favorite pastime.
New England clam chowder is good with fried gulf shrimp so it is all rather dumb...
It’s beyond dumb. It’s deliberately destructive.
“There was no point in posting this in the first place.”
I have no dog in this fight; however, I disagree. It is interesting to note that the government involved is the same exact government in place today, operating under the same Constitution, Bill of Rights, court system, Congress, and so on. Consider this before prefacing any comment with ...”well, that can’t happen HERE, because...”
Well there is a lot of that going around all over..
So now you're bragging about the killing of Americans? Really?
And no, the previous post to you does not justify your response.
Slavery was a horrendous sin. And the consequences of sin of this magnitude ripples across generations.
Practically every year there is a theater release movie, OR a tv movie about the evil South, and the saintly North.
Truth is truth, and should be shared whenever it can be.
You poke just a tiny bit and the hate comes flooding out.
I’m pretty amazed at the reaction of some to a thread on a Civil War history book.
I imagine DUs reaction would be similar to this history book.
Well waaaa! Maybe if you cry a little bit louder more we’ll hear you.
Right. Only a liberal can see slavery as evil.
I’m not a liberal. Slavery is evil.
That is exactly the kind of DU post that I’m talking about.
Out of the blue you post that nonsense to me.
Go over to DU and post a thread simply titled, “Southern States” with no comment or article, no subject, and watch the Pavlovian rabid dogs, jump on the thread.
Slavery is evil. Yes or no. Make your stand.
God, you are insane, hijacking this thread and raving out of your mind.
Truly DU like.
When a thread has been so hijacked and killed off as this one, the mods should step in.
You can not bring yourself to condemn slavery?
If to you DU means someone who recognizes slavery as a sin than I accept that label.
I agree. This thread is garbage. From the root.
Mods. Please take this thread down. It is not worthy of Free Republic.
Of course slavery is evil but, while it was practiced in numerous places throughout the world, the U.S is the only country to use it as an excuse to go to war. It was abolished everywhere else through civilized political process. The atrocities committed by the Northern troops against Southerners, both black and white, dwarf any perceived purpose they claimed to justify their actions. By the way, I have read the book and it is very good.
Paul must have missed your memo when he wrote to Philemon.
“I was just going to not post but I did want to reply. Yes we lost but at the end there were twice as many dead Yankees as Rebels”.
Correct. And that was fighting with 1/4 the men the Federals had.
The South didn’t lose the war, they just ran out of men to fight it.
“But again, war is a no holds barred fight to exterminate the enemy”
Women and children, no-combatants, are not the enemy. No more than the thousands of Plains Indians slaughtered by Sherman and Sheridan and their thugs to make room for the railroad.
Here we go. The Bible is on the side of slavery. You are the saint, I am the sinner.
Sin has consequences. I wish we had never gone down this path.
