Southern Groups Celebrate Civil War's 150-Year Anniversary

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

Celebrating the Civil War may not sound like a joyful party for southerners, and celebrating the Confederacy is far from politically correct. Yet some groups in the South are planning to mark the 150th anniversary of the Confederacy's secession from the United States by doing exactly that.

Jeff Antley, is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and the Confederate Heritage Trust, which is organizing the secession ball in Charleston, S.C., as well as a 10 day re-enactment of the Confederate encampment at Fort Sumter.

Kenneth Davis, a New York Times best-selling author of "Don't Know Much About History," and "Don't Know Much About the Civil War".

Guests:

Jeff Antley and Kenneth C. Davis
