Who Is Reverend Herman White?
Answer: Reverend Herman White is the Church of God pastor who has been libeled on the Civil War Mendacity web site.
According to the CWM site, Reverend White has a heart full of "a lot of racist and historically inaccurate crap." Why such a hateful comment? Because Reverend White "disparaged the Gettysburg Address as ‘political garbage’,” and questioned abolitionist distortions by citing the interviews of thousands of former slaves conducted by the Slave Narrative Collection of the Federal Writers’ Project.
But don’t bother trying to defend Herman White in the carefully screened comments section on the Civil War Mendacity website. I tried, and both my comments were erased. The CWM site is reserved for orthodox, pro-government views only. No open debate allowed!
UPDATE: Here’s a comment on the Civil War Mendacity site from one of that site’s supporters:

Thanks for the link. The guy is harmless.
Harmless? Sure, if the DELETE key is your only asset.
