2020 – The Fall of Albert Pike
Confederate Civil War General Albert Pike and the defeated South tried to re-write the history of the war between the states. The defeated Southerners re-wrote the reason for the war as a noble struggle for states rights. The Civil War was about slavery. The Fall of Albert Pike is about the fall of slavery, finally, after all these years. I once met an intellgent and highly educated man from North Carolina who needed to be reminded that the South really did lose the war and the war was about slavery.
Why Do We Have So Many Statues of Civil War Generals?
We have allowed the history of the American Civil War to be re-written by Southern apologists. However the Southern revisionists have never really admitted that the Civil War was about slavery. The civil war was about slavery and that is what the Southern secessionists were fighting for. The reason we are tearing down statues of Confederate Civil War Generals is because we are no longer allowing the symbols of slavery to over America. The Fall of Albert Pike is about the fall of the old world and the fall of racism.
