Actually It Was About The Slavery

But even leaving that argument aside, I always find fetishization of the trappings of the Confederacy by northerners and transplants to be really really weird. Because, yes, you can embrace "Southern culture" (real or imagined) without hanging it on the noble act of treason in defense of slavery. I can move to Berlin and embrace German culture without deciding that Actually, Hitler was Good.
