The United States (2/2)
And now here's Mrs. United States! I was not going to introduce her for a while since people are butthurt over Confederate statues and the last time I introduced her to others, they called her "slavery" and a bunch of other things I would rather not say. Damn ignorant Hetalia weaboos. Anyways, here's Scarlett. Yes I named her after Scarlett O'Hara (#sorrynotsorry ). So I find it funny how no one wanted to learn more about this character after finding out she represented the Confederacy. Well, she is definitely not what most would expect. The slave girl she owned was obviously freed after the war. They remained together as friends because like I said, South Carolina(her mum)'s ideologies never stuck to Scarlett (Scarlett was quite neglected by her mother to begin with, especially after the death of her father during the Civil War). Its weird, I know, for the Confederacy to not be racist but not everyone in the South was racist just like the North was not 100% segregation free either. Life's not black and white. Its grey. And I intend to portray that through my characters.
P.S. If it isn't obvious already, Thomas is black.
Any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know. I am open to all educated inquiries. Please no hate, however. I'm not in the mood for ignorance. Pick up a book before trying to make me mold her to how you think she should be based on the crap we are taught in school.
#onthisday in 1863, the battle of Chickamauga in northwestern Georgia ended with a Confederate victory. It was the war's second-bloodiest battle (Gettysburg was the first) with about 34,500 casualties from both sides.
The battle is most famous for Gen. William S. Rosecrans, commander of the Union Army of the Cumberland, being driven from the field by an attack by rebels under Gen. James Longstreet. Union Gen. George H. Thomas and his troops remained on the field, and Thomas (pictured) became known to history at the "Rock of Chickamauga." Two months later, Thomas succeeded Rosecrans as the Army of the Cumberland's commander. #civilwar#chickamauga#georgehenrythomas#rockofchickamauga#union#confederacy#georgia
