Happy Confederate History Month

Southern California native George Allen finally made it to the big screen in the 2003 film 'Gods and Generals'

“Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery subordination to the superior race is his natural and normal condition.”
– Vice President of the Confederacy, Alexander Hamilton Stephens

Stephens was considered a “moderate” among secessionists and was known for his generosity and intellect. His “Cornerstone Speech” was delivered in 1861 soon after he was elected Vice-President of the Confederate States of America and co-authored the government’s constitution.

Thanks Stephen C.!
