Julius Howell enlisted at 16 to fight for the Confederacy in 1862. In this 1947 recording in DC, Howell at age 101, recalls his Civil War exploits as a cavalryman at Petersburg and Richmond and his memory of the assassination of President Lincoln from a Union POW camp. The title of general is in ironic quotes because his was an honorary moniker bestowed on him years later by a Confederacy society.



Julius says most confederate soldiers weren't fighting for slavery. He was glad he raised sons and daughters free of that. He said most confederate soldiers fought for states rights.

It makes no difference what most confederate soldiers thought. What a person thinks and what they do may be quite different. That is because most people do not realize the horror they thrust on others. But wonder if they were slaves? Would those same confederate soldiers be fighting for states rights or would they be fighting for their rights...the rights of a human being regardless of race or creed.
