Couldn't have said it better. I listened to a lecture a while ago with the professor basically wondering if the South intended on losing the Civil War. One of his premises was the North started using black men and winning while Southern generals were begging, I think it was Lee, to please take advantage of this resource of able-bodied men. Many black men were willing to fight for the South. But Lee refused.

So in this one instance, I'm thankful for the stupid

On Edit: It was Jefferson Davis, the only president of the Confederate States who General Lee pleaded to include Southern black men.
