Description

Myths of the Civil War and slavery are being kept alive at Confederate monuments, where visitors hear stories of “benevolent slave owners” and enslaved people “contented with their lot.”  We team up with The Investigative Fund and discover how public money is supporting this false version of history.



Plus, an artist finds herself in the middle of the creation of New Mexico’s most controversial historical monument.

sometimes I wish after the civil war we brought all slaves North and let the south leave the union. To this day they produce little, are ranked the lowest in most categories and are the poorest but they love to keep hate alive. If we let the south leave today they'd be bankrupt in 10 years. It's no wonder the north has all the best universities, tech, engineering, arts, media, science, real estate, high paying jobs. the north pays the nation's bills, the south is a welfare state
