Response to struggle4progress (Original post)

7. Texas had an unhealthy fascination with the CSA when I was growing up:

Jefferson Davis High School in Houston.

'Spirit of the Confederacy' in Sam Houston Park in downtown Houston.

Check the chapter list of the:

Texas Division

United Daughters of the Confederacy®


There was a state holiday for the birthday of that Jefferrson-fucking-Davis! In 1973 it was mixed with Robert E. Lee's to create 'Confederate Heroes Day.'

The Confederate response to the Emancipation Proclaimation. Jefferson Davis' own words:

"...Now, therefore, as a compensatory measure, I do hereby issue the following Address to the People of the Non-Slaveholding States:

On and after February 22, 1863, all free negroes within the limits of the Southern Confederacy shall be placed on the slave status, and be deemed to be chattels, they and their issue forever.

All negroes who shall be taken in any of the States in which slavery does not now exist, in the progress of our arms, shall be adjudged, immediately after such capture, to occupy the slave status, and in all States which shall be vanquished by our arms, all free negroes shall, ipsofacto, be reduced to the condition of helotism, so that the respective normal conditions of the white and black races may be ultimately placed on a permanent basis, so as to prevent the public peace from being thereafter endangered..."
