Capt. C.F. Connor, Camp #849

Blue Ridge Brigade, NC Division
Hickory, North Carolina



Shortly after the War Between the States, the victorious North began affixing the blame the war on the South. To this day, the causes of the war are generally ascribed to the South's practice of slavery. Very few schools and colleges currently teach the history of the Civil War, much less the true reasons for how and why the war which took the lives of 620,000 Americans, Union and Confederate.

The time has come to educate an ignorant populace about what brought on the war. For decades, the South had been discriminated against by a powerful North. Just what led up to the war which would take more American lives, before or since, is a matter of record.  These videos are provided so that the reader will hopefully not remain ignorant of the truth.
