The Jews of the South, including my extended family, fought honorably and loyally for their homeland, not for slavery. They, like their compatriots, showed amazing courage, dedication, and valor—enduring incredible hardships against overwhelming and often hopeless odds in fighting for  their families, homes, and country.
 
Most Confederate soldiers felt they were fighting because an often cruel invading army from the North invading army from the North was trying to kill them, burn their homes, and destroy their cities. And anyone with family who fought to defend the South, as mine did, cannot help but appreciate the courage, valor, and honor shown by our ancestors.
 
If you would please send me your email, I’d love to send you an article I did on Jewish Confederates, & why they fought.
 
Sincerely,
