    Why on earth do people seem to always associate the Confederacy with the more base elements of our modern culture? It’s frustrating. Somehow I think the Basil Dukes, George Hunt Morgans, and John Breckinridges of the Confederacy would take great exception to this comparison.

    I am convinced that the short list of Confederate heroes would not be able to identify themselves in our more popular interpretations of the war.

    Wayne Fielder, shame on you! George Hunt Morgan, you said?!!! Somehow I think you are mistaken :) His name was John.
