Re: “We staged a world-class Civil War commemoration

OH MY ... OH MY ... Mister Morecock, can you be any more politically correct?? I am not a Southern "regressionist", nor am I a Northern "I told you so" ... I am a "historian", & to be honest, your article really managed to steam me!! It really irritates me most when you spend your time criticizing events that took place during the centennial, & lauding how smoothly everything went for the celebration of the sesquicentennial!! I don't know whether or not you have noticed, but ... TIMES HAVE CHANGED!! Things happened the way that they did, because the entire mental attitude of the entire Nation was different in 1961-1965, but, you don't look at that ... you just criticize the events, & talk about how wrong that they were!! I am not saying that certain individuals were correct ... but, that just happened to be the purveying attitude ... & you CAN'T change the times!!
Now, let's talk about rabble rousing ... your comments regarding the Secession Ball. The last time I looked, isn't secession part of the whole history?? I am sure that there were Secession Balls held in 1861, so, it IS STILL part of the history ... yet you condemn people for re-creating such an event in December!!
Here's another one ... well, if you didn't notice, many of those CONFEDERATES that occupied Fort Moultrie, & eventually Fort Sumter ... WERE WEARING BLUE UNIFORMS!! Oh, I'm sorry ... I know ... you thought that they were really YANKEES, & that it was really the RE-OCCUPATION of Fort Sumter that they were re-enacting!! Well ... they weren't wearing GRAY, so they must have been YANKEES ... weren't they??!!
Thank you for an article that spent WAY too much time ANAL-lyzing your own personal view of history, & not near enough time talking about the actual events that took place to remember perhaps one of the most important parts of our nation's history!!!
