D: That's the Charlie used to say at Khe Sanh, too, shitbird. The primary differences being a) that Chalie was smart; b) that he could fight as well as bluster; b) he'd do so even if he was outnumbered and hadn't had twelve Old Milwaukees.
It is inevitable--inevitable--that given that given two minutes and a megaphone the Mr. As of the world make your case for you:
And KY was one border slave state that stayed in the Union only because of leverage. A lot of Americans died at Perryville - read your history.
Sheesh, Perryville, October 8, 1862--the largest, and pretty much the last Civil War battle on Kentucky soil--was a clash of armies in the Western theatre, not some sort of popular uprising. Bragg had moved into Kentucky with two purposes in mind: relieve the pressure on Corinth and Chattanooga, and to swell his ranks with Kentucky recruits. He did neither. His quick exit capped a late summer/early autumn that saw the Union victorious at Corinth, at Iuka, and Lee's retreat from Maryland.
We repeat: Kentuckians voted for the Union in every way it mattered--in the state and national legislatures, in the rebuke of the invasions of Johnston and Bragg in the early part of the war, and in enlisting by a 3-1 margin in the Federal army. The assertion of a "Confederate heritage" on the southern banks of the Ohio is at best a celebration of the minority status of one's ancestors, and at worst a sort of smirking celebration of racism and comic-book history.
Do we ignore the racism of the North? Not then and not to this day. Would we censor individual displays of the accoutrements of slave ownership, even if we could? Nah. We're First Amendment believers here, one of the freedoms our own ancestors fought to extend to all citizens, however imperfectly they believed in that. Besides, we're happy to let y'all mark that particular territory for all the world to see.
