    Union Monument to "War of the Rebellion"

    Like so many towns across America, Two Rivers has a monument to local soldiers who fought in the "War of the Rebellion," also known as the War Between the States or the American Civil War.

    Being a proud descendent of several Confederate veterans, I was somewhat amused at the political spin contained in the inscription on this monument. It reads:

    ERECTED 1900
    IN MEMORY OF THOSE
    WHO FOUGHT IN DEFENSE
    OF THE UNION
    1861 - 1865

    Actually, the North was not fighting a defensive war at all. It was the Confederate States of America who were defending themselves against an aggressive invading Union army.

    Seems to me the same kind of spin is still being used by American leaders who wage wars to maintain a world empire, and use the pretext of defending the United States.
