Still Standing is Standing Right in Front of Me
That’s right, my copy of the new documentary Still Standing: The Stonewall Jackson Story has arrived. I plan to give it a thorough review very soon so stay tuned. My comments about one line from the trailer caused quite an irrational outburst on a few fronts. First, I never claimed to have seen the movie when I commented on the idea that Stonewall Jackson should be seen as the "champion of enslaved men and women." No amount of argument, whether its religious, historical or moral could possibly convince me otherwise. Sorry, I just have a problem with the idea that a slaveowner can be properly labeled as such. I don’t know, call me old-fashioned.
