This is a common character trait in The Western. This character fought for the Confederate side in the Recent Unpleasantness. Might well be The Remnant whether or not there are other remnants. Alternatively he might be giving other remnants speeches about forgeting old grudges and "why can't we get along". Probably a Shell-Shocked Veteran and may have a lasting grudge against "damn Yankees." May also be a Southern Gentleman. Film
