Happy Secessionist Month

So, Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell though it’d be a good idea to revert to 19th century thinking and designate April as “Confederate History Month,” but with one omission: any mention of slavery. This caused a storm of controversy, naturally and he’s already apologized. Regardless, I never really understood why the South is so proud of the Confederacy, that’s like the Irish celebrating the Draft Riots.
