You don't seem to realize that the Civil War wasn't fought over slavery it self, but primarily over state's rights to govern themselves, which was of extreme importance to our (USA) founders. Over 300,000 Confederate soldiers gave their lives for this. I think it is safe to say most of them did not own slaves. My father, and his descendants, were from Texas. He revered and was proud of his southern heritage. He was far from a racist, and thought slavery was horrible. Robert E. Lee owned slaves, yet felt it was unjust and long overdue for a different view and change. His concern was whether a mass freeing of slaves would be detrimental to them as they may not be prepared to fend for them selves. He didn't have an answer for something that was an accepted practice for thousands of years.

As for comparing those from the Confederacy to Nazi Germany ... it disgusts me.
