“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” – Adolf Hitler

From “Lincoln 365,” by Arnold Kunst
June 30
‘The dream of the Confederacy started out with an expectation of nobility and ended cloaked in revisionist elitism. Both dreams contain fantastic, almost unbelievable, stories. But the story of what really happened is far more intriguing – and useful. If we are to learn from the history of men, we must be frank about their humanity. Those who led the Confederacy were not gods. They were men, sometimes bold and sometimes weak, sometimes hateful and sometimes grand, sometimes selfish, not always sober. Together they formed an imperfect union, and together they destroyed it.’
- David Eicher

‘We would like to live as we once lived, but history will not permit it.’
- John F. Kennedy
