Typical Hollywood ignorance about the South. While having a Yankee
ancestor is unfortunate, it would not disqualify her from membership
in the DOC. And having Jewish ancestry would be utterly irrelevant.
Over 10000  Southern Jews fought for the Confederacy and several Jews
held high government offices in the CSA as well as high ranks in the
army.  Oh and Southern Jewish soldiers were free to practice their
faith while Northern Jewish soldiers found their army far less
accomodating.
