The Latest In Black Confederate Fashion

Looks like the newest line of Dixie Outfitters t-shirts is now available and with this little gem you are likely to be noticed miles away.  Actually, I can’t tell whether we are supposed to celebrate black Confederate soldiers or H.K. Edgerton.  Doesn’t this look utterly ridiculous when you put it up against this?

    I think it’s great they managed to get every single “Black Confederate” on one shirt, plus Edgerton. .

    Do you get a copy of Entangled Freedom with each purchase?

    I really want to know why the NCO has artillery stripes.

      Probably because it looks cool.

    Such a lack of numbers as the first comment stated, better coincides with negro slave owners. So be it – if the southern negroes or negro rebels in general wear the shirt.

      Thanks for the comment. Unfortunately, I have no idea what point you are trying to make.
