Kevin Levin just can't leave it alone. He's obsessed with bashing certain views of Southern history (though legitimate) that don't fit his template. His latest commentary about nationally recognized Civil War sculptor Gary Casteel's work, is a perfect example. Kevin tells us that his own parents and grandparents embellished his family's history about the WBTS (I think he's being serious), so he transfers his experience to Mr. Casteel's without verifying the facts. Kevin calls Casteel's work "fantasies." That's what happens when your views are agenda driven. You let emotions cloud your views and then you make assumptions based on those emotions.
Casteel's depiction of two brothers who were formerly enemies, now being reunited, is one which portrays, in artistic form, things that really did happen in familes during the war and its aftermath. The work also portrays sentiments which have been well-documented in books like, My Brother's Keeper - Union and Confederate Soldiers' Acts of Mercy During the Civil War.
I think it is Mr. Levin who lives in a fantasy bubble driven by his distaste for anything which portrays the Confederacy, her history, or her soldiers in any way that can be seen as postive or worthy of honor.
