This letter is in response to Gene Wolfe's response to his letter that African-Americans should "pay homage" to the Union's soldiers who died in the Civil War.
Why is he angry that it was pointed out to him that African-Americans fought in the Civil War? (Didn't he see the movie, "Glory"?)
He states he knows 40,000 African-Americans died in the war; "They are in fact included in my over 300,000 figure. Why should I single out those 40,000?"
Why did he single them out to begin with by stating African-Americans should "honor and pay homage" to the "soldiers who gave them their freedom"?
