AT LEAST THAT’S WHAT THE “EXPERTS” THINK, especially when Southerners talk about the Wa-rah of Nor-thun Ag-gress-shun!
Anything that doesn’t fit the nationalist, “Glorious Union” narrative is labeled “Lost Cause” mythology—stuff Southerners just made-up after the war for less than honourable reasons.
Southerners, they believe, are particularly creative in their “myth-making” when it comes to General William T. Sherman and his march through Georgia and the Carolinas.
Thankfully we do not have to rely on these so-called “experts” to figure out what Sherman and his army were up to. We can go directly to the people who were there. They seem to be far less confused about what happened to them than these so-called “experts.”
Our latest release, adds to the growing number of these eye witness accounts that show, beyond any reasonable doubt, who the real myth-makers are:
A Legion of Devils: Sherman in South Carolina
By Karen Stokes
Here's a description...
THE WAR CRIMES committed by General William T. Sherman and his men against Southern civilians and their means of sustaining life are a huge stain on the American national character. Sherman’s crimes are routinely denied or minimized (by those who don’t actually celebrate them), although they are as heavily documented, from Northern as well as Southern sources, as any event in history. Sherman’s campaign through Georgia and South Carolina is even cited as a brilliant military feat. In fact, it was not a military feat at all. There was very little fighting. It was a massive campaign of terrorism against civilians. It violated international law and hypocritically deviated widely from officially-declared U.S. policy… READ MORE

Al Benson Jr. takes note of The Kennedy Twins' Latest book, PUNISHED WITH POVERTY on his blog REVISED HISTORY:
How many folks chanced to drive through parts of the South in the 1950s, 60s and even in the early 70s and noted how poor the country seemed to be compared with other areas of the United States? Many probably wondered why the South couldn’t seem t do better that it was doing. To say that the South, in our lifetime, was and is the poorest part of the country, with the possible exception of Indian reservations, is no exaggeration. And yet, knowing some of the reasons for that and the history behind it, my wife and I, now living in Louisiana, would not willingly go back north to live. The South is home, and we have been more content here than just about any other place we’ve lived, for several reasons.
There are reasons for the poverty in much of the South and for the poor whites and blacks that live in it, and in many cases the poverty is not their fault. It was intended for them to live that way by those that sought to conquer them during and after the War of Northern Aggression and by the descendants of those conquerors who, even today, enjoy rubbing their faces in the planned poverty that is supposed to be their due because their ancestors had the temerity to stand up and “dare defend their rights.” Such is not to be tolerated in the cultural Marxist milieu...
