So, I don't think her situation has anything to do with Obama.

I think she is one of those who can't get over their regret over emancipation, even though it happened long before she was born. Like the Lady Antebellum group.

The nostalgia and fondness among some Southerners for the good old days before slavery ended is something that I will never understand. In my life, I had never seen anything about that era made a fond subject--and I've always lived in states that actually won that accursed bloody war.

The most I saw growing up was maybe a memorial statue to a Civil War soldier in public park, along with other memorial statues. But now, re-enacting in general is more popular. Still, I've only ever seen Revolutionary War re-enacters, and those at the Paul Revere House.

I can barely bear to watch the guy on Antique Road show who seems to have made a fetish of civil war weapons. Reminds me: The only time I know of that an appraiser was drummed out of the Antique Road Show for fraud was a Southern appraiser who had arranged to have someone come in to his table with a Confederate sword.
