I am writing in response to the letter on Jan. 13 that chastises The Advocate’s editorial board, claiming that there is a moral equivalency between the Confederacy and Nazi Germany.

While I am in no way defending the Civil War, I would like to point out that the South did not invade foreign countries, start a world war or embrace a multinational, murderous regime, which included the extermination of 6 million Jews.
