I am writing in response to the letter by Charles Long on the Confederates. ["Security Threat Level Gray," April 19, 2012] Bravo Charles. That is one of the best descriptions of the liberal dimocrats, spelling intentional, I have ever seen on paper although I have been telling people that for most of my 69 years. I would suggest you avail yourself of the vast amount of information in the National Archives and study the factual history of the Civil War. Then you could write something other than their talking points and not expose how totally ignorant you are on the subject.
