Thanks for voting in favor of Confederate History Month.
The Emancipation Proclamation was a war measure designed to cause a slave
revolt in the South. It was carefully worded (by Lincoln) so as not to free
any slave in the North. And, it did not free any slaves in the South because
Lincoln did not have any authority in the South. The South was governed by
the Confederate government.
Of the four million black in the South at the start of the War for Southern
Independence, the great majority stayed in the South and supported the
Confederacy by growing food, making war supplies and taking care of the
farms for the white Southerners who were away at war. They could have
escaped slavery for there was no one to keep them from leaving. But they
stayed. There was no slave revolt.
They stayed because of their love and caring for their white families.

a step towards that mutual understanding and cooperation.
Congratulations on being a woman of character and speaking the truth in the
face of the political correctness.
