Confederate History Month 2017

April 1 - 30, 2017 in Southern USA

April 2017 is Confederate History Month. Confederate History Month and related celebrations have been controversial due to the contentious place of slavery in the history of the United States. When Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell issued a proclamation resurrecting Confederate History Month in 2010, controversy arose due to the proclamation's omission of slavery

Although Confederate Memorial Day is a holiday in most Southern states, the tradition of having a Confederate History Month is not uniform. State governments or chief executives that have regularly declared Confederate History Month are as follows: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Virginia.

The American Civil War was a civil war fought from 1861 to 1865, after seven Southern slave states declared their secession and formed the Confederate States, the "Confederacy" of America. The states that remained in the Union were known as the "Union" or the "North". (With material from: Wikipedia)
