Those Plundering Abolitionist Preachers (do unto others before they do unto you)

by Al Benson Jr. Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America Should you have chanced to read any history at all dealing with our “Civil War” really the War of Northern Aggression, you must surely have read something about “bleeding Kansas.” I can remember reading about that in my pre-teen “history” books.

A Few Excerpts From “The Memo”

A Few Excerpts From “The Memo”
