copperI think I’ll take a few grandkids to see this tonite…  2  14 year olds and a 12 year old. Boys.   The 2 granddaughters may not be interested… but I will invite them.

The 12 year old explained to me about 6 months ago that he did not care for Confederates. (He overheard a discussion between me and his father… I was reading Shelby Foote’s Trilogy of the Civil War).  I asked him if he knew that he had 4 ancestors that were Confederate soldiers in the war… and two of them were killed in action.  I asked why he thought the South was on his scorn list… he said his teacher said the South and Confederates were bad because they had slaves.  (uh… its not that simple folks).

I’ve noticed a trend in Education the last couple decades… South… Bad.

The free book to read online is below…. written 1893.

update…..   Its a history movie… and it is “objective”.  Its “PG 13” OK for kids but the under 13 crowd may not understand (they don’t teach this stuff in school anymore).

This was a case of Northerners shunning Northerners (a kind of 1862 political correctness, if I may juxtapose 150 years).

Thumbs up.
