I was reading a disgusting article today attacking a Virginia history text-book for saying that blacks served in the Confederacy. Of course, we are given quotes from brilliant historians who bestow upon us their great wisdom that blacks did not serve in the armed forces of the Confederacy. This is blatantly untrue. While we will never know the number that served it is clear and documented that blacks did serve in the armed forces of the Confederacy. In general, I find most historians to be left-wing radicals who are unwilling to teach true history. It is much easier to just make it up so it fits their own ideology.
Truth Need Not Apply
