    Some of these comments remind me of a (true?) story, told to me by one of my sons. One of his college classmates was stopped by a county sheriff in Georgia speeding. The sheriff told him, “Son, NOBODY goes that fast through Georgia.”
    The response was: “Sherman did.”
    That earned him a ticket with a HUGE fine!

    In Alabama, we speak “Football!”

    As it was explained to me when I first moved to Georgia as an Air Force airman (originally from that Midwestern Yankee state of Michigan), it is not the “Civil War” – it is the “War of Northern Aggression”. Since I live in Alabama now, it is still the “War of Northern Aggression”.

    (and @bcathey1960): Several years back I was in Alabama where an intelligent, highly educated woman explained to me, as she had been taught in school, that of course the Civil War was not about slavery. Later I went to my Britannica Annals of History and read about 30 years of speeches and articles on the subject. The facts are clear: it was about slavery, always slavery, and nothing but slavery.
    I have been pleased to see in the 20 or so years since then that historians have vigorously turned against the factual distortions needed to maintain the “not slavery” pretense.

    If modern Japanese and Germans can accept the crimes of their forefathers and move on in life, there is no reason the American South should not be able to as well.

    After my thankfully short exile to New England, I was glad to move back to the South, where people know how to use the letter R.
