(Kindness of Zach through Bill. BT)

Walter Brian Cisco's book, "War Crimes Against Southern Civilians"
Pages 174-175

"Nashville’s blue clad conquerors were feared by black civilians. When Ohio soldiers were unable to find seats in a crowded theatre one evening in 1862, they invaded the “Negro gallery” and began shoving patrons out of their way. “In 10 minutes”, read a report, “every Negro had been badly beaten and ejected, some of them being thrown entirely down the stairs, from the top to the bottom.” After the performance, troops went about the streets of the city attacking every African American in sight. Robbery was common, as was sexual abuse of black women by Yankee soldiers. A U.S. cavalry regiment recruited from among East Tennessee Unionist and described by one girl as “the meanest men I ever saw” rode into Gallatin in May 1864 and began a reign of terror. They torched two newly established schools for black children, murdered one freedman, and swore they would – as soon as they could – kill every black in town."

This is the sort of information with its sources that must be made public. A nice LARGE advertisement in a 'recognized' [i.e. liberal] publication will do well to begin to strike doubt into the minds of many who see the North as benevolent liberators and the South as racist barbarians. The information is out there, but most people either don't know where or they don't look for it because they don't know it exists.
