I put forth this challenge after numerous comments made on Connie Chastain’s “Backsass” blog from Michael Lamb. Michael has claimed numerous times that slavery was not the cause of southern secession. It is also due to my favorite friends – Skid Billeaudeaux, Freda Mincey and Justin “Confederate Rebel” Burton mentioning me several times on the BlogTalkRadio program hosted by Justin. In the following podcast Justin rants about political corrcetness, history and the cause of the war.
So here is the Challenge…read the first 100 pages of The War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, Series IV, Vol. I and decide for yourself what the cause of secession was according to the South.
Anyone is welcome to add their comments after reading those 100 pages. But this really goes out the Justin, Freda and Skid. I know you follow the blog due to numerous mentions on Facebook and your podcasts. You constantly talk about reading real history…well here it is. Those 100 pages are all primary source documents and Confederater documents…no Yankee “propoganda” here. So have at it boys and girls…let me know what you find.
