It should come as no surprise that Representative Benton is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. This past weekend an SCV camp in South Carolina honored a slave for his “service” to the Confederacy. Unfortunately, his personal history has no significance or meaning beyond the vague references that support the SCV’s narrow and self-serving slave narrative. Henry Craig,
- went to war with his master.
- rescued his master on the battlefield and brought him home safely.
- remained on the family’s property until the day he died.
Where have we heard this one before?
