Storyline

It's time for South Park's annual Civil War re-enactment, and the boys have been assigned to the Union army. Cartman's misbehavior gets him kicked out, however, and he shows up later dressed as the Confederate general. Angry at his friends for laughing at him, he bets them that the South will win the Civil War, and then starts inspiring his troops to start fighting for real. Not only does the Confederacy go on to win the battle, Cartman then begins leading them to take on the entire nation. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Quotes

Cartman: Dear you guys. Words cannot express how much I hate you guys. As we fight our way northward into the great unknown, only that one thing remains certain: that I hate you guys with every tired muscle in my confederate body. We have taken Topeka and I must rally the men onward to Missouri. Because I will not stop until we have won it all, and you guys are my slaves. Because I hate you guys. I hate you guys so very very much. Yours, General Cartman Lee.

Solid early South Park episode on Civil War reenactments
22 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the stronger episodes of South Park's 3rd Season, in my opinion. Cartman is hilarious as a Robert E. Lee impersonator. There's no other way to describe what he does in this episode than "Cartmanesque"- leading the residents of South Park on a country-wide rampage to "win" the Civil War for the Confederacy, not for any noble or high purposes, but purely out of his hate for Stan and Kyle (if he wins, they become his slaves). The episode also features Butters with an early speaking part, and great spoofs of Clinton and Gore. I especially recommend this episode for Civil War buffs- as long as you can deal with Civil War reenactments being made fun of.
