9 US States Declare Sovreignty
I believe this is called secession, and I’m pretty sure we fought a war over this. So why is it coming up again?
On a somewhat related note, Human Events offered a book The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War which looks designed to show the North and her leaders did nothing right and the South and her leaders did nothing wrong regarding the Civil War.
It will show
Why Robert E. Lee had a higher regard for African Americans than Lincoln did
How, if there had been no Civil War, the South would have abolished slavery peaceably (as every other country in the Western Hemisphere did in the nineteenth century)
How the Confederate States of America might have helped the Allies win World War I sooner.
Leading Northern generals–like McClellan and Sherman–hated abolitionists
Bombing people “back to the Stone Age” got its start with the Federal siege of Vicksburg
General Sherman professed not to know which was “the greater evil”: slavery or democracy
Stonewall Jackson founded a Sunday school for slaves where he taught them how to read
General James Longstreet fought the Battle of Sharpsburg in his carpet slippers
Is this really “the truth of the Civil War?”
