"Hi, Billy Mays here for the Lost Cause bingo!"
A bingo card to make arguments with Lost Causers go a bit more smoothly. Since most of them use the same few arguments, just mark 'em off as you see 'em.
Lost Cause bingo
It was the War of Northern Aggression! Lee opposed slavery! Lincoln was a tyrant who wanted to destroy the South's way of life! The South had no choice but to secede Slaves weren't actually treated that badly
The Constitution allowed for secession Lincoln was racist too! The Emancipation Proclamation didn't free any slaves Grant owned slaves, and Lee didn't. Checkmate, Lincolnites! The South was treated too harshly during Reconstruction
There were black Confederate soldiers too! Slaves were better off here than in Africa! The Civil War was about state's rights!


Free slaves collaborated with Republicans to oppress white people 90% of Confederate soldiers didn't own slaves, so they weren't fighting to preserve slavery
Grant was a corrupt alcoholic, as opposed to the honorable Lee General Sherman was a war criminal! Blacks were happy to be slaves/sharecroppers! Removing Confederate monuments will erase part of our history Slavery was Britain's fault!
The Confederate flag represents heritage, not hate! Blacks weren't really treated better in the North Tariffs were the real cause of the civil war The KKK was some kind of civic/veteran's group Confederate generals only fought because their home was invaded
