Re: “Michael Allen brings together NAACP, Sons of Confederate Veterans

While I applaud his efforts he has accomplished nothing. As long as the federal gov’t forces to teach the war was all about “slavery” and ignore everything else in South Carolina’s, Georgia’s, etc secession documents, no “common” ground of actual truth will ever be found. Virginia, North Carolina, etc DID NOT secede until Lincoln called for invasion troops. VA actually voted against secession prior to Ft Sumter event. The NAACP has a “resolution” against the Southern emblems (see 1991) and until they STOP calling for the removal of Southern history from flags, to names, to buildings, etc there can be no commonality. Until the NAACP ADMITS black support (see William Ellison from SC) abd FOUGHT for the South and still do, the NAACP will do nothing but stir the race pot – the end-all-be-all of filling their coffers.

Re: “If the Confederacy had won, slavery would have continued in the South

"Indianapolis Daily Evening Gazette" 12 March 1863 refers to the 5 March 1863 fight around Thompson's Station, near Franklin, TN. The 85th Indiana Volunteer Infantry reported:
"NEGRO REGIMENTS IN THE REBEL ARMY - During the fight the battery in charge of the 85th Indiana [Volunteer Infantry] was attacked by two rebel negro regiments. Our artillerists double-shotted their guns and cut the black regiments to pieces, and brought their battery safely off. . . . It has been stated, repeatedly, for two weeks past, that a large number, perhaps one-fourth, of Van Dorn's force were negro soldiers, and the statement is fully confirmed by this unfortunate engagement."

So the REAL question is why blacks and yankee writers today are only "reporting" half truths or covering up this ACTUAL RECORDS from the period???

Re: “If the Confederacy had won, slavery would have continued in the South

From James G. Bates' letter to his father reprinted in the 1 May 1863 "Winchester [Indiana] Journal" (The 13th IVI ["Hoosier Regiment"] was involved in operations around the Suffolk, Virginia area in April-May 1863 ) -
"I can assure you [Father], of a certainty, that the rebels have negro soldiers in their army. One of their best sharp shooters, and the boldest of them all here is a negro. He dug himself a rifle pit last night [16 April 1863] just across the river and has been annoying our pickets opposite him very much to-day. You can see him plain enough with the naked eye, occasionally, to make sure that he is a "wooly-head," and with a spy-glass there is no mistaking him."

Re: “If the Confederacy had won, slavery would have continued in the South

Frederick Douglass, Douglass' Monthly, IV (Sept. 1861), pp 516 -
"It is now pretty well established that there are at the present moment many colored men in the Confederate Army doing duty not only as cooks, servants, and laborers, but as real soldiers, having muskets on their shoulders, and bullets in their pockets, ready to shoot down down loyal troops, and do all that soldiers may do to destroy the Federal government and build up that of the traitors and rebels. There were such soldiers at Manassas and they are probably there still."

Remember in 1861 blacks were NOT allowed in US army, except as slave servants as with General US Grant!

Re: “If the Confederacy had won, slavery would have continued in the South

Why did Black Confederates get locked up in Yankee prisons? Fighting for slavery?

North Carolina Troops, Volume I: -

"When Fort Fisher fell to the Union troops in January, 1865, the following blacks are recorded [by Union forces] as being among the captured Confederates:
Charles Dempsey, Private, Company F, 36th NC Regiment (2nd NC Artillery), Negro. Captured at Fort Fisher January 15, 1865 and confined at Point Lookout, MD, until paroled and exchanged at Coxes Landing, James River, VA, February 14-15, 1865.

Henry Dempsey, Private, Company F, 36th NC Regiment (2nd NC Artillery), Negro. Captured at Fort Fisher January 15, 1865 and confined at Point Lookout, MD, until paroled and exchanged at Coxes Landing, James River, VA, February 14-15, 1865.

J. Doyle, Private, Company E, 40th NC Regiment (3rd NC Artillery), Negro. Captured at Fort Fisher January 15, 1865 and confined at Point Lookout, MD, until paroled and exchanged at Boulware's Wharf, James River, VA, March 16, 1865.

Daniel Herring, Cook, Company F, 36th NC Regiment (2nd NC Artillery), Negro. Captured at Fort Fisher January 15, 1865 and confined at Point Lookout, MD, until released after taking Oath of Allegiance June 19, 1865"
