A fellow who goes by the name “Border Ruffian” loves to pop up in the comments sections of various history and heritage blogs. BR is wont to make extravagant claims about large numbers of black Confederate soldiers, and now he’s added a new twist to his tale.
Funny how we never see this oft-threatened list. But then BR has richly earned a reputation for failing to put up or shut up.
As for Border Ruffian’s true identity, well, I’ll simply quote Pensacola’s gift to Confederate heritage, who declares in regard to another poster: “You reckon this is the poster’s real name, or is it a coward-handle to hide behind?”
Funny that she never said that to Caldwell/Austin/whatever … her favorite commenter … ah, the hypocrisy of heritage advocates. But at least she agrees that BR’s a coward. Otherwise she’d admit that she’s a hypocrite.
