The Civil War showed exactly how insane and barbaric Americans can be. There may have been some people that died valiant deaths during the war, but that doesn't mean the war should be celebrated. We should be horrified by The Civil War. We slaughtered each other over the right to enslave some of us. I don't see what there is to be proud of. Especially not if you're celebrating the achievements of the Confederacy.
Even if you buy into the asinine argument that The Civil War was fought over "states-rights" rather than slavery, you still have to admit that the Confederacy fought a war against the United States of America on American soil. Have you ever seen what we've done to anyone willing to fight against the United States? We tend to use A-Bombs and Napalm. We sure as hell don't fly their flag and make it a fashion statement.
The Civil War was the worst thing that ever happened to the United States of America. When that legacy is remembered, maybe I'll attend a reenactment.
