Are there really still people that believe the Civil War was won by the South?

I always hear jokes about people that think the South won the "War of Northern Agretion" But are there really people that still think that way? I know when it happened there was little to know comunication between the states. Mail was slow, no TV, low literacy levels... But are there really people TODAY that believe that way?

**Sorry, Wasn't sure where to post this... We need a "homework help" section for questions like this one...

  • There probably are. I can't say I know any offhand any more (I think this school of thought should be pretty close to dying out of old age) but sadly there is no shortage of rednecks who still insist we will rise again and "defeat them yankees" this time. sigh.

  • Anon, my part of the south is a whole factory full of fruit loops just waiting to be poured. Consider yourself very lucky.

  • In a way, the South did win in spirit. They managed to continue to abuse, rape and lynch blacks for almost a hundred years after the war ended before anyone managed to stop them.

  • Ok, callmeann, no idea where that came from, but, thanks for sharing.
    Sabrina, I certainly hope not. And if there are I want to know what hole they have been living in. How could you NOT know that the North won? I mean, isn't that part of most grade school history classes?
