I wanted to write something about the Confederate battle flag being permanently lowered at the South Carolina State House on Friday, but the issue is such a hot-button topic that my own words failed me time and again.
I was scattershot and not really connecting.
But I came across this essay (see here), printed in the Wall Street Journal and written by noted Civil War historian Dr. William C. Davis, the only three-time winner of the Jefferson Davis Award for his books (more than 50 of them) on Confederate history. In my opinion, Dr. Davis cuts to the heart of the matter with reason, forethought and intelligence.
So today, I am keeping my blog short so you can take the time to read Dr. Davis. Enjoy.
