Black History Month is about highlighting previously-overlooked contributions made by blacks throughout history. It's basically Affirmative Action for history books, which until rather recently overlooked or omitted black historical figures. I would argue that BHM has peaked and now drives to the point of being counterproductive, since the focus during February leads to a feeling of "we've already covered that" when the course of study reaches the appropriate context for discussing black contributions. That's another debate though. What's more to the point is this: People don't ignore the Confederates in covering Civil War history, the way people ignore/have ignored blacks in covering general history (INCLUDING that of the Civil War). Heck, I could probably name more Confederate leaders than I can Union ones. And I was educated in a non-Confederate state, so I'm sure a state like Virginia already teaches plenty about its Confederate history. There's no need for a temporary corrective bias as there is with black or women's history months. If anything, I'd say Virginia probably needs a "Union & southern slaves" History Month.
