Rob Baker gives a short brief of the flag coming down in South Carolina. I know he is happy, even though his post doesn’t reflect much emotion.
Killing two birds with one stone here.
This short to to Cold Southern is not so much about what Baker posted but a comment made by Jimmy Dick. I also have a question
Dick’s comment is ”

I think all the work done by educators and historians everywhere helped pave the road for this event to take place. Men and women who used facts in their teaching have overcome the lies of the lost cause which created the mindset to demand change when this act of terror by Roof was committed. That rag is down and it is not going to come back.
I have went a few rounds with Dick, his strong suit is insults, not facts. This brings me to my question. Does anyone know of any real true facts that were presented in this issue that related to the Confederate Battleflag? Surely there was one presented and surely someone heard it but what was it?
I suppose a better question would be does facts really matter?
On another note these folks ought to take a little advice from Al Mackey who was so kind to post this image at https://studycivilwar.wordpress.com/2015/07/10/politicians-and-history/
Where did the extra Confederate states come from??? From Jimmy Dick’s history class of course!!!!!!
