Why doesn't the Confederacy just fade away? Is it because we are irresistibly fascinated by catastrophic loss? Or is it something else? Is it because the Confederacy is to this day the greatest conservative resistance to federal authority in American history?So, just to be "fair and balanced", it's not just some whacko birds in the "Confederate heritage" movement who believe the Confederacy still exists. And it's not just that same crowd who focuses on the political aspects of competing perspectives.
But, thank God, the American South does still exist. And will for the foreseeable future.
