A state library does not represent the state as a whole, so I don't know if North Carolina is lying to me, or anyone else, but I do know that there are numerous historians that have not represented the facts from the Civil War very well.  I suspect a few of these folks have works residing at the University of North Carolina.

I would consider works written by those who lived in that time period to have more authority than those written by those who did not.  There is plenty to be learned by modern historians, however, if they are in disagreement with those who lived in the time about which the write, it is curious at best.  Why do they disagree?

Again, a whole mountain of lies, are still lies, volume does not make it any more true.  Mass is a poor substitute for truth.

Your derogatory emails really don't help your point.  My name is Ted, maybe that is hard to remember, I don't know, but really, play nice.

  Mr. Ryan -


  You asked for references.  How about a whole university library of references?  No.  I am not talking about the University of Idaho.  I am talking about a college situated south of the Mason-Dixon Line.  Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am talking about the University of North Carolina.


  You want references, Coffeemonkey?  They got references.  They got oodles and oodles of references at:




  Tell us, Coffeemonkey.  Is the state of North Carolina lying, too?
