The above link is a very informative article about the rebranding of the Confederacy and its cause. Some very interesting stuff in here.

For instance, Kentucky didnt' secede and sent many more soldiers to the Union than the Confederacy but has dozens more Confederate monuments and Union ones.

Or that there is a town in Maryland that was pro-Union and that had to pay extortion to the Confederate army under threat of being burned to the ground, yet today the town has Confederate monuments with inscriptions that falsely claim that town was pro-Confederate.

Also, does a good job of explaining how the Conderacy was anti-states rights when other states passed laws that were anti-slavery.

The author does a good job of supporting his thesis with clear cut examples.
