Georgians across party lines believe in creationism over evolution. The overall numbers are 53/29- it's 70/17 with Republicans, 43/33 among Democrats, and 46/40 with independents.

To be fair, probably at least 15% of Americans would tell you that General Sherman fought for the Confederacy. It sounds like a Southern name.

They must be amused by General Sherman's antics in his lagoon.

31.2% of Georgia's population is black; 16% favorable for Sherman seems creepily low, considering.

The biggest problem with the results are the 16% who view Sherman favorably. It should be 0% favorable view of Sherman, but alas we have 16% of the population that is dumb and beyond hope.

Is this the same poll in which Georgia Republicans were more likely to like Paula Deen than they were to like Martin Luther King Jr.? 'Cos then, I could understand it in politics, followed by swarms of Ric Romeros.

I wholeheartedly agree. He a) didn't burn enough of the Confederacy down, and b) forgot to salt the earth as he went through.

No, I'm pretty satisfied with the way we conquered you people.  As a victor, I take the burden of improving the lot of you people quite seriously.  Now, I know some of my Northern brethren question the wisdom of pouring so many dollars at these savages who are beyond reproach.  How many billions of our tax dollars must be transferred to these brutes who cannot even make the most modest improvement in their standard of living they say.  Who refuse to accept science and mathematics which is a relatively minor charge.

But I think it's good charity.  When I go to Heaven, I'm going to get some special treatment.

Pretty much he burned everything from Atlanta to Savannah and destroyed the rail line as well.

It pretty much screwed everyone in the path no matter what color they were.

Poor General Sherman. If only he had done a more thorough job.

Most of that 16% is probably from Savannah; thanks for making us the only place with a genuine historic district (AKA, easy tourism money) in the state!

His goal was to destroy infrastructure to make the war harder for the South to fight.  And he succeeded.

Yeah, I'm aware of that. Doesn't mean that I can't wish he didn't go a little further with his strategy. He could have been a bit more thorough.

I bet most of those people wouldn't know Sherman was in the war of Northern aggression, in other news most of them probably refer to it as the war of Northern aggression.

You are not going to Heaven, no American ever gets to Heaven. For it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into Heaven, and Americans, all Americans, are the richest mother farkers on the face of the earth.

I may be misremembering, but wasn't Sherman a major reason that the reunification of the US went without any real punishment for the south?  Yeah he destroyed his way south, but he made sure that the south wasn't economically destroyed for generations as punishment by the north.

/off to wikipedia to double check that

Yeah I was remembering correctly.  Sherman accepted the South's surrender with no terms, in contradiction to what the US government wanted.  Wikipedia's a bit light on the details, but iirc he was actually told not to accept the south's surrender, but he did anyway.  And he got it to stick.

After he finished raping the south in war he saved it in peace.  I'm surprised that his favorability isn't higher in the south.

Beautiful!  and my personal Jesus says you'll be well received...by the rumored 71 virgins the J-hadis have appropriated for themselves (on what must be very shabby evidence.) Thank you sir and good day!

the South will pretend to rise again, while the rest of US are  laughing AT them, not with them.

I think we can call a do-over.  But first we need to march an army down south.  We'll have to send them with no supplies so that they take all their food, clothing, and pay from the areas that they march through.

Bonus points if they let half of Atlanta burn down because nobody cares enough to put the fire out once it starts.
