The Civil War was not fought to free the slaves. The War was fought to save the Union. The North had to pay for their laborers and the South could buy their labor and own it for a lifetime. There were slaves in the North, but in the South they were the backbone of the labor force. The South lost the War, but they have held own to their symbols of their glory days. From flags to statues the south is adorned with relics from the good old days. The symbols that they worship are viewed as symbols of oppression for some. So the question is should all of these symbols be removed from the public square? Should schools named after Confederates be renamed? Do we want to erase the Confederacy from history? Share your thoughts.
