Check out this story of Jim Limber pictured to the left. He was accepted into the family of Jefferson Davis. Yes, that guy the only President of the Confederate States of America. Davis' wife rescued him from an abusive man and took care of the boy and was ultimately accepted into the family.
forget that the Confederates lost the Civil War although it doesn't
appear to be explored during the course of the story linked above he was
taken away from the family by a Union general. The Davis' never were
able to find out his fate.
You know we always were
taught that the Confederacy supported slavery and perhaps by proxy very
evil. Yet we hear stories like this and then we may recognize it's not
entirely black & white. Of course that's not to say slavery was OK
or anything like that.
