Today, on the Friday before the federal holiday honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., the state of Virginia takes a pause and celebrates Lee-Jackson Day.
Yes, I live in a state that honors two generals of the movement to secede from the Union.
Given today’s state holiday, and
Given the fact that the flag of the Confederate States of America is still for sale, and
Given the obsession some folk have in re-enacting the Civil War, I ask:
Is there any other country in the world that so fondly remembers its losing rebels?
