    It's eerie isn't it, how much the white population of the Civil War South resembled the more extreme elements of the Republican Party?

    . . . White Racists keeping down minorities, while despising the Federal Government and demanding greater states rights, and the majority were of the poor and middle classes making sacrifices to prop up the rich one percenters.

    So much for the folks that claim the war was not about slavery.
