Good find Way 2 Slo,

Those pictures are amazing. Its just hard to believe that there was so much death and destruction back then in the days when there were no cars and trucks.

In that one photo with the cannons and cannon balls in the foreground on the island by the river shows that Richmond, Virginia was totally destroyed.

Its terrible that people kill other people.

Seems like everytime I clicked a dead guy picture, it was a confederate?

Are they trying to get people to stand behind the government again during the next civil war by showing what happens to those who oppose it?

I liked the one of General Custer.
He looked so confident.

The confederates didn't have many photographers and none that stayed
with the troops like brady did. The war dead were usually confederates
as the nothern public wouldnt pay to view pictures of their own dead. Kinda like early propaganda now that I think of it.

Such carnage and destruction to our very own. Those pictures are very telling and a reminder of how cruel and despicable Civil War can be. Lets hope this nation never goes down that dark and bitter road again. I couldn't even imagine what it was like during those days and the violent division among the people. I have always been fascinated by the Civil War and these pictures only heighten my interest even further, thanks for sharing. Star and Flag, good find!

They look fake to me. What were they using then? The latest digital black and white camera from Kodak? They released these new photos because they have the technology to fabricate them. Propaganda is everywhere.

I totally agree, the photos are appalling, but this is what happened the last time Americans decided to be free of government tyranny and taxation. I am hopeful that the next time this happens, and it will happen, that so many of the States walk out and quit the corporation, the corporation will no longer be viable and will crumble. Also, the person who called Civil War photographs "propaganda" was right on, these were the original propaganda in America. This is where the tyrants in the form of a democracy took over America, lock, stock, and barrel, and began to shove executive orders down our collective throats.

They constantly produce more "evidence" to further embed the American myth. Almost everything we've been taught since birth is either a lie ore so twisted that it serves the same purpose. This kind of thing is to drive the lies deeper into the mind of humanity. At this point we are brainwashed to the point where we no longer question anything.

Well, it seems he/she/they MAY lean to the confederate side.

Here is the link to the confederate parade: www.mikelynaugh.com...

I do not know for sure. What do you all think?

EDIT TO ADD:

Okay, so it seems they have a civil war remembrance day which seems to include both sides. Back in 2004, why only have a confederate parade?

To each his own I suppose. It looks about equal when I look at the photos for the remembrance day.

Andersonville was harsh, and prisoners did starve. However, the Confederate Armies were also on starvation rations at the time. The greater crimes were hellholes such as Elmyra, Camp Chase, Point Lookout, and others. These were Union prisons in the well-fed, well-supplied Union, where Confederate prisoners were intentionally exterminated.

OK, precisely which myth are you talking about.

The north was good? the south was bad? There was no war? America doesn't actually exist? Robert E Lee had a toupee?
