A movie that claims Lincoln started the war is pretty much the definition of pro-Confederacy.

It's like Bush defenders. There is a core 11% who will believe anything in line with their own screwed up logic.


OK, so how is showing that the Confederate characters in the movie BELIEVE Lincoln started the war anything other than reality? You would prefer they go around spouting "Well we know we brought this on ourselves and are a bunch of worthless slave-owning inbreeds, but damn those Yankees are touchy."

Or was Lincoln actually shown in the movie (or book for that matter) doing something other than what he historically in fact did, which was not appease the South thus sparking their rebellion?
