I seem to remember a scene in a movie where the Cadets charged the zunion forces; is that right?

Jen Kreder

Is the reparations request perhaps tied to the Lieber Code?

Bill--that's my understanding. And Jen, I don't know think so. But I'd be interested in hearing more about your question.


The first time I went to VA, my in-laws took me and my husband to breakfast at America's oldest continuously working inn, the name of which escapes me. But I remember being shocked that the tour included slaves' quarters. Having grown up in Southern California, we didn't even have basements, let alone slaves' quarters. Reading about slavery in textbooks was very different from being confronted with actual evidence.
