Somebody forgot to alert my family and friends that they now live in what is more of a northeastern city than a southern city. Also, Bajan, it is clear that you know very little about the south if you think all Southerners are conservative and uneducated.
Where would this Cemetery be? Considering "Miami" didn't even exist during the Civil War.

Not only are you wrong about Florida, you are evidently quite ignorant of the entire south.
The biggest load of BS is you claiming Maryland to be a Northern State based off of Pure Discriminative Hatred towards the state...

Yep, in your opinion.

This is true.

Miami may not have existed, but Dade County definitely did.

Don't forget Confederate Park in Jacksonville, by the way. Or Olustee Battlefield State Park.

Confederate sites in Florida run from Jacksonville to Key West:

The poster said if you are at least two hours driving time from New Jersey, you are not in the South. Most of Virginia and all of North Carolina is not 2 hours from New Jersey. So exactly what was your point in regards to that original comment?
