Not one nickel of my tax
Unpublished

Not one nickel of my tax dollars should be spent on such foolishness as this. How many tax dollars went to this effort and who authorized it? If these people want to honor their ancestors, use their own mantle or private property. This was a remembering of hate and nothing more.

Haha justus, this IS what your tax dollars are going to be spent on. I think its pretty stupid too, but just to know that it will make you angry makes it a good idea.

This memorial service was

This memorial service was done by a private organization and no public funds were used to honor these soldiers who died in Confederate hospitals here in Augusta.

Those who say honoring their ancestors is of hate need to look in the mirror at themselves.

The true history of the war?

The true history of the war? That's a good one. As taught by Confederate apologists. "and NO we don't celebrate king b'day". Thanks for adding that little tidbit, it says it all. Those pesky black folks. BTW: Jeff Davis dresses like a girl.

There is a wonderful quote "

There is a wonderful quote " I would rather be politically incorrect then historically inaccurate". And no I am not a "confederate aplogists" as there is nothing to apoligize to anyone for. This is a wonderful opportunity to TEACH morons about these brave honorable men who had the guts to fight for what they believed in. And any idiot that thinks they died to preserve slavery is just that an idiot. The mass majority did not even own one slave. A great many black men fought to preserve the states rights of the confederacy and many of their own race do not even have enough honor to remember them. That is a sad fact.

Maybe anyone who's black might feel a little uncomfortable around these racist redneck yahoos.
