    Really? I've done it. There was some bluster and it was forgotten.

    You're just being silly. And irrelevant.

    Responsible for basically how historians had perceived slavery and the South for many decades. To Peroista who said history was written by the victors, in all actuality, it was written by those who had lost the Civil War until the 1950s and 1960s.

    This is just the beginning with this school board as their committee will recommend changes in AP courses in all other subjects. Isn't it great to know that "Congressman Paul Broun" types will force the 6,000 year-old theories on our very best students. Nice prep for for a real professor huh ?

    Pretty shallow response, my friend ....

    We know that slavery has existed since the beginning of time. You make it sound like it was our own little invention.

    BUT ... the United States stopped slavery. 600,000 Americans died over it. That sounds pretty positive to me. Maybe you should consider the accomplishment, not the cause.

    So the school doesn't teach that slavery ended?

    They probably should include that fact
