If the Civil War was about slavery, does that mean the monuments and flags honoring the south and its heroes espousing the racist ideology that drove the Confederacy to secede from the Union? What about the slave states that didn't secede? Did the northerners think they were fighting to abolish slavery? Ultimately, how should we remember the Civil War and the South's role in that conflict?
We look at those subjects this week in a special, unscripted episode, all while trying to avoid modern-day politics like the plague. What are your thoughts on Confederate monuments and the Confederate flag? Do you think the Civil War was about slavery?
Agree or disagree, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Share them in the comments below, on Facebook, or send me an email. Thanks for listening!
