I made some rather pointed and valid points in the discarded article.
But then I reconsidered. After the South surrendered, the two sides worked to rebuild and reunite this country.
It seems disrespectful of me to take sides when those gentlemen (and they were gentlemen) worked so hard to reunite was was divided.
After all, the slogan at Appomattox is, “where our nation reunited.”
Why divide when you can build?
