    May 10th is Confederate Memorial Day.

    Offer a prayer for those who made a sacrafice for their constitutional rights.

    Only Confederate Memorial Day in North and South Carolina.

    Most other states it was April 24th or the 4th Monday in April (occasionally they fall on the same day).

    I believe you are wrong, I recall there being quite a few memorials to the treasonous Confederate generals in the South.

    I'm glad they're dead. Now we just need to finish the job. You spelled 'sacrifice' wrong.

    Men of still greater honor than, say, Ted Kennedy, who will also be memorialized.

    We have a FDR memorial in D.C. [​IMG]

    True. Either way, I wouldn't have complained if the lot of them were hung like the criminals they were.

    The revisionist bullshit about states' rights is amusing.

    We are having a Confederate Memorial Day party at my house tonight, but I am telling all of the guests that it is really for mother's day.
