The CSA’s famous raider, Mosby, canvassed for the Republican Party after the war. Few Rebel vets were Republicans but some others were not into party politics at all. They were usually resistent to the federal government’s over reach just like most Freepers.
The Democrats were the Conservatives of their day. Yes, only idiots an liberals project 21st century norms and culture back to the 19th century.
