That's what automatically comes to mind when people think of the history of the American South
The media and educational establishment has done an admirable job of
against White Southern Heritage
Did you know that there are Black people who are proud of their Southern Heritage?
Of course, they're considered "race traitors"
H. K. Edgerton, a black man, runs a web site called Southern Heritage 411
He claims that there are hundred of thousands of black people who are proud of their southern heritage
He also claims that at least 50,000 blacks served for the Confederate cause, not all of them against their will
He's absolutely right
So, if blacks served in the Confederate forces, willingly sacrificing their lives for their masters
what is the truth about
FACT: The U.S. Constitution guaranteed the right to own slaves
FACT: The war was not fought over slavery, that was just an excuse
FACT: The greedy northern elite who caused the war are the same northern elite that are pushing the disastrous agenda in Washington DC today
FACT: There were slaves in the north!
FACT: Less than 5% of southerners owned slaves in 1860
FACT: Northern states used a form of White slavery at this time in their factories that was more inhumane than the black slavery in the south
FACT: Most northern states by law would not allow blacks to migrate to their states and that is one reason why the "Underground Railroad" went either to Canada or west
FACT: The other reason? Northern states recognized the rights of individual states and, by law, returned runaway slaves to their owners
FACT: Even during the war, runaway slaves were returned by the Union forces!
FACT: The United States Constitution recognized slavery
FACT: When the American colonies formed into States after the Revolutionary war, it was understood that each state retained jurisdiction over all local and domestic institutions and the federal government would be limited
FACT: Slavery was a domestic institution
FACT: The northern states abolished slavery, as was their right
FACT: The southern states kept slavery, as was their right
FACT: When the northern states were agitating for southern states to abolish slavery, they had their own form of slavery in northern factories which maimed and killed Whites
FACT: Slaves were protected by law
FACT: Southerners believed they had the absolute right to leave the Union
FACT: The Emancipation Proclamation was a political move. President Abraham Lincoln did not free the slaves anywhere except in the "rebellious" states where he had no power
FACT: Slavery existed in the northern states up until 1850, and even later
FACT: Robert E. Lee surrendered the troops, Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America, never did
FACT: Slavery would have ended in another 20 years or so and everyone in power knew it
FACT: The northern elite (Republicans) wanted to subjugate the south and the war accomplished their goal
FACT: These same Radical Republicans wanted the negro vote for political purposes and decided to punish southern Whites in order to gain this power
Jefferson Davis, made a resolution before the Senate, February 2, 1860:
In it he reminded the senators that when each State adopted the constitution, they were free and independent sovereignties, and that as a whole they had an obligation to come to the aid of each other, not attack.
He reminded them as well that slavery was constitutional, and that no state had the right to discriminate upon the sovereign capacity of another state
He told them that attempting to deny the constitution to any state was hostile, subversive of the Constitution, and revolutionary and would lead states to act.
Then on February 29, 1860, Jefferson Davis replied to a speech that William H. Seward made, a very militant and outspoken Republican who was agitating for a fight. Davis did not mince his words:
"He charged Seward with hypocrisy, stating that Seward is breaking the Constitution. Davis states that in southern society, Whites are equal. But in the north, "your own menial who blacks your boots, drives your carriage, who wears your livery, and is your own in every sense of the word, is not your equal; and such is society wherever negro slavery is not the substratum on which the white race is elevated to its true dignity. We, however, have no theory to press upon you; we leave you to such institutions as you may prefer; but when you assail ours, we come to the vindication of our institutions by showing you that all your phrases are false; that we are the freemen. With us, and with us alone, as I believe, the white man attains to his true dignity in the Government."
Davis finished by saying,
"I thank my God, that in the state of society where I reside, we have no scenes so revolting as these (speaking about the juvenile penitentiaries, beggars thronging the streets, work-houses and insane asylums in the north). Why then not address yourselves to the evils which you have at home? Why not confine your inquiries to the remedial measures which will relieve the suffering of and stop the progress of crime among your own people? Very intent in looking into the distance for the mote in your brother's eye, is it to be wondered that we turn back and point to the beam in your own?"
You see, Davis knew that the northern states had Black Codes which restricted every facet of life for their blacks
Over 90% of blacks lived in the South
Blacks living in the north were severely restricted
Most blacks living in the north could not vote!
Blacks who were freed, could not move north, that's why the Underground Railroad went to Canada and the West
Whites who were in the "underclass" were treated as "white trash"
Seward and men like him, the "northern elites", the
And Davis knew it
Robert E. Lee wrote a letter in 1856 in response to a speech given by President Pierce. In it he said:
"There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil. It is idle to expatiate on its disadvantages. It think it is a greater evil to the white than to the colored race. While my feelings are strongly enlisted on behalf of the latter, my sympathies are more deeply engaged for the former. The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, physically, and socially."
He goes on to say that slavery will one day end but that only God knows when and it should be left up to Him to decide the exact timing. Lee closes with this thought:
"Is it not strange that the descendants of those Pilgrim Fathers who crossed the Atlantic to preserve their own freedom have always proved the most intolerant of the spiritual liberty of others?"
So while these men talked about keeping the Union together and letting God decide when slavery would end, men like Seward were calling for revolution:
"I know, and you know, that a revolution has begun. I know, and all the world knows, that revolutions never go backward....While the government of the United States, under the conduct of the Democratic party, has been all that time surrendering one plain and castle after another to slavery, the people of the United States have been no less steadily and perseveringly gathering together the forces with which to recover back again all the fields and all the castles which have been lost, and to confound and overthrow, by one decisive blow, the betrayers of the constitution and freedom forever."
Seward got what he wanted
the War of Northern Aggression cost hundreds of thousands of lives
PRICE IN BLOOD
The Union had between 2,500,000 and 2,750,000 men in arms
Of those, 110,070 died in battle
360,222 total Union deaths
The Confederacy had between 750,000 and 1,250,000 men in arms
Of those, 94,000 died in battle
258,000 total Confederate deaths
618,222 total (at least)
Was the northern elite quest for supremacy worth it?

Atlanta Rail Depot Destroyed
NO Northern cities were destroyed in this manner
It's no accident that we named a tank after this evil man
See how the northerners would not be satisfied until the south was completely destroyed
Ending slavery was not their goal
The northern elites wanted to end an entire way of life
The northern elites wanted to end an entire culture
The northern elites wanted to have absolute rule
Because after the War of Northern Aggression was over
Then came the true crime
Not content with reconstruction under President Andrew Johnson
Radical Republicans in the Senate pushed through a form of punitive reconstruction that finished the destruction of the South, including race relations between Whites and blacks
Most historians will tell you that the White southerners wanted to re-enslave their blacks
This is not true
What is true is that the Whites recognized that the blacks had been subjugated for generations
For the most part they had no knowledge of government, they were illiterate, and entirely dependent
It would take time for the ex-slaves, as a whole, to learn what it meant to be free
Remember, northern states had laws restricting their free blacks!
Yet they decided that the southern states needed "help" figuring out what to do with newly freed slaves
Carpetbaggers descended on the south
No White man who had participated in the Confederacy could vote
Blacks, most of whom were ex-slaves and could not read, and Northern outsiders ran the state governments
Crime -- the newly freed slaves were out of control
Reconstruction governments robbed the southern states of millions
Alabama's debt went from just over eight million dollars to over $25,500,000
South Carolina was saddled with a debt of over $25,000,000
Georgia's debt went from just under six million dollars to over $18,000,000
Louisiana debt went over $40,000,000
The other states were robbed in equal numbers
Think you understand the South?
You have no clue
You can learn the truth about this time in history:
You cannot learn history accurately unless you learn it from those who lived through it
Yet by the time Reconstruction was over, White and Black would be forever divided
By the time the 20th Century came along,
Southern Heritage became a dirty word
Truth was lost
Northern elites no longer ruled Southern government, but they ruled National minds
Save Southern Heritage!
