    Indeed, Southerners should celebrate him first and foremost.

    And the Irish, Cromwell I suppose?

    Maybe but the South certainly should celebrate Sherman he probaly bought the war to an end quicker than it otherwise would have finished, speeding up their inclusion in the civilized world. He also killed a few traitors (Confeds) so Southerners who are really patriotic should be happy about that.

    This pretty much. Also, he burned down the family farm, hastening our move to the greatest State in the Union.

    Surely I am not the only one who thinks that the South shall rise again?

    If only the Confederate army could have invented grenades the year before the invention of the instructions.

    Dude, I love the South. LOVE IT. The food, the culture, the geography, everything.

    But I'd like the nation to stay united. And would you really want the South rising in the form the Confederacy took? Hell no. Can you imagine living in a segregated country? A country where slaves were legal? That sickens me.

    And to clarify - the South wouldn't be the South without black people. Like it or not, the cultures and fates of white and black Southerners are intertwined. Many of white southerners' most cherished institutions came from black folks and, to a certain extent, vice versa. Contrary to public perception, the South is statistically the most integrated region in the US. And I love it that way. That's the new South. THAT's the South rising again.

    Imagine the South without gospel music, the blues, the banjo, the food, etc. I mean damn, take all those away, turn down the thermostat and you've got Michigan or New Jersey. Who the hell would want that?
