Mr. Cisco's flawlessly documented expose of Union Army war crimes rips the carefully constructed facade off Lincoln's "Army of Emancipators." Far from being an army of liberators, Union troops burned, raped, ravaged, and terrorized civilians from east to west. The brutality long overshadowed by federally-sponsored propaganda of Andersonville and Fort Pillow is at last revealed by newspaper accounts, letters, and diaries, many from Washington's own National Archives.

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.

In as much as I, as a Southerner, appreciate the acknowledgment of Yankee crimes against a people simply seeking freedom from an ever growing Federal Bureaucracy (sounds familiar eh...) I say let sleeping dogs lie. The North is doing enough to itself now, their smart folks are moving South and at the rate we are going the future of American Ideals may well rest on what was once the Confederacy. Irony indeed.

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.

“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...”

So now you're bragging about the killing of Americans? Really?

And no, the previous post to you does not justify your response.

I as a Southerner have to disagree with you.

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.

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.

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.

What was it that one Yankee Illinois Colonel said before the Battle of Shiloh? Something to the effect that if the men knew they were fighting to free the slaves they'd be lucky to get two companies on the field.

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.

“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.
