Reviews:  “...not what happened, but what people believe what happened which determines the present action of a Nation,” so says the narrator. How many people know that General Lee and Lt. Gen. Thomas Jackson were not for slavery but knew that the cause of the South was justified? This fact sticks in the crawl of the NEA. The North won the war and I suppose won the rights to the text books which our children read from. What facts fly by without getting so much as a mention in the text books or magizines or even the movies. They fly in one ear and out the other, never the twain shall meet!

Jackson started a Sabbath day-school for the black population. Yes, Jackson was a Christian. A Presbyterian one at that (we are Presbyterian).

Gen. Robert E. Lee was a Christian too. A more stalwart, God-honoring general you will never find unless it be Jackson. He too was never for slavery.

Quite different is our thinking today. We are naturally repulsed by the idea of slavery, but the anti-slavery movement was beginning and still had time to work out all of its arguments. Lee and Jackson suffered with this understanding, not the one we have today.

There is a good mini-documentary on slavery. It shows that the North was quite into it and I suppose it is possible that they were the leaders of the slave. For instance, when the slaves were brought over from Africa to America, where were they dropped off, in the Southern states or the Northern states? That is right, the Northern. Plus the Emancipation Proclamation had to do with the Southern states only, not paying mind to the Northern states who were inundated with slaves.

“Warriors of Honor” kind of helps set things right when you have so much right about the War Between the States but most all of them (most) are wrong when it comes to slavery (even when it comes to what is said by the Confederate Vice President; the North was guilty of the same thing). The bloodbath that it was over States Rights,the rights that States have over the encroaching Government, to say "No!" if it came to that, not over slavery which we today find repugnant!
