I don't care what you say ace. I know what I see and hear about history in the text books. Back when I was going to school Southern States got to choose the history books they wanted and so did Northern States. We got the Southern version of the War Between the States and the Yankee states got the Northern version of the war and the same for Reconstruction.

You don't hear about Confederate soldiers coming home and murdered in TN by renegade state guard composed of feed Black slaves, abolitionists and some Yankee and ran by a abolitionist governor who was appointed by the Feds. He advocated killing returning soldiers in his abolitionist newspaper. Gov Brownlow was the most evil and tyrannical governor ever to hold any office in the US.
We only hear one version and that is the PC version of how the Confederate states were bad and the Northern Army gave freedom to the slaves in the South and nothing about what happen during Reconstruction other than the KKK was killing innocent Blacks and carpetbaggers. No mention that the reason the "original" KKK was formed was to regain voting and citizenship rights to former Confederate soldiers or what happened to the White population in general.
Yeah you tell me the books tell the truth nowadays ace. How do they address History. I don't care about your legislature the liberal teachers and school board select the PC books anyhow. Thank you, thank you very much
"I could have ended the war in a month. I could have made North Vietnam look like a mud puddle."
"I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."
