    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    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.

    Some would say that it is anti-revisionist. I have no opinion on the matter.

    I am about as against the confederacy as anybody - but a large number of brave men and boys gave their lives for something that they believed in, and, for the most part, they did it in a very honorable way.

    they should rest in peace, and they should be remembered - sometimes good men fight for stupid, bad causes, even though they have the best intentions. that is the base for a lot of tragedy literature.

    As did the Taleban and the Nazis. There wasn't a goddamned thing honorable about what they did or why they did it.

    I agree with Hos. The rebels failed because they fought under a general who did not read Sun Tzu. He advised his troops to attack uphill in every major battle.
