A classmate in 7th grade

made me know something was not right about the Civil War "history" as I knew it. I was REALLY good at getting good grades, so I did not clutter my mind with wondering what REALLY happened and continued to do what got me rewarded... bahhh...
Anyway, she was born and raised in St. Louis, south of the Mason-Dixon line, and moved to Ohio. My hometown included houses on the "underground railroad" and I grew up quite proud of the history of my little village. This girl was very vocal, in a good-natured way, that the South was right. She used to say "Save your Dixie cups, the South will rise again!" every time she got a drink. She was really intelligent, the only child of two highly educated parents. And she was black.
