What I can't decide is which network hates the United States of America and it's military more,...MSNBC or CNN. It always seems they give more favorible coverage of communist dictators than America.

I saw this last night, and it made me disgusted with what people actually *THINK* is history without researching anything about the Confederacy.

It's a legitimate question. You have a problem with that?

And I don't see Cooper or CNN taking sides....most unlike Faux News.

My great great uncle and several of his cousins were not terrorists. I have lots of documents on them (letters, etc.). Not terrorists. Sherman was a blatant terrorist, however...

The officers who led the Confederate soldiers were trained at US Military academies including West Point. Prior to the formation of the Confederate States, these officers served in the United States of America.
