Assuming you're from Southern Appalachia. Some Civil War bloggers like to suggest "heritage and history" are mutually exclusive terms. It's an asinine assertion, though it does serve their rather narrow agenda. But the two concepts are inseparable. Perhaps they're just jealous of those whom they view as having a much more interesting heritage. I'm not sure what else could explain their cynicism and snottiness.
Below is another great video on Southern culture, history and heritage. I've taken my family to the Country Store featured in the video. It's a wonderful place to experience.
