In modern English, Americans generally refers to residents of the United States; among native English speakers this usage is almost universal, with any other use of the term requiring specification.
I was born and raised in the South. I love the South. I love southern culture. I love southern food. I think we have the best accents. I know we have the best authors. My home state of Arkansas is easily one of the most beautiful states in the nation.
That all said, I think its ridiculous to honor the confederacy in any way. The south seceded for one reason: The right of southern states to have slavery. Slavery, one of the most evil institutions man has ever conceived of, is what the south fought for. Why in the hell should that be honored in any way? We don't honor Nazi Germany or the soldiers that fought for it. There ought not be any memorials to the former of empire of Japan. Hell I have a great, great, great grandfather that has a confederate monument dedicated to him in Tennessee. That is wrong. Regardless of any honor he had in the field of battle, he fought for an evil cause. As southerners we just need to admit that we were in the wrong during the Civil War.
