My dad almost kicked me outta the house, (when I still lived at home) because I don't think it's right to call people like Jefferson Davis an American hero.
To me, thats like calling George Washington a british hero.
I don't think that the confederate soldiers, or officials should be honored in this country. If people feel the need to honor them, fine, I cannot control another persons destiny, (yet), but I feel it is a disservice to the American soldiers who died protecting the Stars & Stripes, rather than rebelling against them.
