And Exposing the Pro-Slavery Attitude Still Extant

Confederate Bullets
"Coffin Nails"

"I'm A Good Old Rebel"
(Rebel drinking song)

“I'm a good old rebel,
Now that's just what I am,
For this 'Fair Land of Freedom'
I do not care a damn;

I hates the Yankee nation
And everything they do,
I hates the Declaration
of Independence
, too.

Three hundred thousand Yankees
Is stiff in Southern dust;
We got three hundred thousand,
Before they conquered us;

They died of Southern fever,
And Southern steel and shot,
I wish they was three million,
Instead of what we got.”

For information (web sites listing) on
post-war Confederates in the Wild West,
gunfighters still shooting Yankees, click here.

See also David W. Padrusch, Aftershock: Beyond the Civil War (A & E, 2006),
for more on the Confederate violence pattern. For example,
Confederates in 1866 New Orleans wounded, shot, and dispersed
the delegates to the Lousiana constitutional convention, and their supporters,
lest they vote to allow blacks to vote.

A Better Warning Label: Treat cigarettes like you would a live hand grenade, throw away as far and as fast as possible.
Save yourselves and those around you.

“It is not enough to know the past. It is necessary to understand it.”—Paul Claudel (1868-1955).
“Public health is the foundation on which reposes the happiness of the people and the power of a country. The care of the public health is the first duty of a statesman.”—Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881).
“Partem aliquam recte intelligere nemo potest, antequam totum, iterum atque iterum, periegerit.” No one can rightly understand any part until he has read the whole again and again. Meaning: Re-read referenced sites, “iterum atque iterum,” “again and again,” until you understand them in full.
