“I maintain it’s up to serious students of the war to oppose the rubbish groups like the flaggers put out. Not because it will change the minds of the fundamentalist flaggers, but because it will highlight the fact that the flaggers put out nonsense to people who are looking for information. The vast majority of those folks will never see the inside of a Civil War History classroom or listen to one of Professor Gallagher’s lectures, but the more information opposing the lunacy the flaggers and their ilk spew, the more likely it is that someone searching on the internet will be able to discount that lunacy.”

And later on, in the comments, he makes this statement— I’ll continue to oppose false information with true information.
Well first off, the flaggers or Confederate Heritage supporters are the only ones who will post true history. The only other way to find the truth is do the research yourself. The “historians’ cut from the same cloth as Mackey have a biased agenda and will not admit the truth.
Mackey if we are so ignorant why is it you continually get your butt kicked with facts every time you stick your head out from behind the safety of your friends blogs? Why is it that time and time again your version of history is nothing more than twisted facts, a few cherry picked quotes, insults, the dismissal of facts you don’t agree with and outright lies?
If you are so knowledge about history, why for almost the last year, your posts have been 90% articles, books and online videos done by someone else? Do you have any truthful, factual research you can call your own?
Now you are free to oppose me on this forum if you wish, but I warn you your bigotry, insults and constant arguing the what each and every word means will not be tolerated. You will post facts and move on.
Our first discussion will be slavery was not the cause of the war. Do you have the backbone to show up?
