Be the Confederacy at your own peril

November 19, 2012

Has modern sensitivity reached the stage where it would be grounds for extensive psychological counseling for a kid to play with miniature Confederate soldiers? Incorporating the Stars and Bars into a modern state flag is one thing, but how else is a young boy to recreate bloody epics like the battle of Antietam without his Rebel box of men?

I guess it’s okay since reenactments are okay. And so long as the Rebs aren’t winning every time.

    Ha! Where I grew up, playing the blue side would have gotten you in trouble! I don’t know about psychological counseling, but it would definitely have gotten you a whooping from your daddy!

      I have an aunt from Tennessee. Even there, “Sherman” is an epithet.
