umm 2 reasons
1: THEY ARE LYING.... its historically inaccurte to a T. it is FACT that it was fought over States Rights..
and now a quote from "Honest Abe"
"I will say that i am not, nor have i ever been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black
races, that i am not, nor ever have been in favor, of making voters and jurors out of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to
internarry with white people; and i will say in addition to this that there isa physical diference between the white and black races which i believe
will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality."

that defined america" by John D. Wright
2: Im sick of the south being denied the RIGHT to celebrate their heritage everytime a civil rights group thinsk its racist. they throw that word
around to get what they want like a $2 hooker. this proclamation, the confederate history month has absolutely NOTHING to do with slavery. its about
clebrating the fact the your part of america is different than the rest, we rebeled, we fought a bloody war, we had our own country for a little while
but we lost and yet were proud of our boys who fought and died for the south.
