  • Yes, coming from an African-American too. I believe the south should have its appreciation month for it's fallen soldiers, just as long as it's not supporting an anti-African-American tone. The Civil War has long since pass, and we have come a long way.

  • Whatever stance one takes on the American Civil War, everyone should agree that it is a vital and interesting part of our history which should be remembered and commemorated.

  • I was born & predominantly raised in the South, but I've never heard of it. However, I think history should be taught -- including the worst parts of it, i.e. slavery. "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." -- George Santayana

  • Supporting the rebellious attitude that tore the country apart, supporting the pro-slavery ideals of the former south, and mourning those killed in their effort to preserve the enslavement of people are all reasons why this should definitely not be a national holiday.
