BS...The civil war stated because Davis and his inner circle wanted to create an agrarian slavocratic empire stretching from Richmond to Tierra del Fuego, and he knew that could not happen while attached to the United States with a growing group of "radical republicans" and abolitionists. So like most demagogs he sold his semi literate poverty stricken mostly NON slave owning population on a fake bill of goods about "states rights" and 'northern aggression" THAT is why the civil war started

Big:

"c ongress past high taxes on cotton and tobacco for export.it needed cotton for the mills of the north.c & t brought more money form overseas mills and cumsumers.the north wanted to force the south to ship it produce north."

There ought to be no tax high enough to damage a slave trade. There ought to be no punishment grave enough for a slave owner. If the people of the south didn't want the kind of taxation you speak of, then they should have chosen to use the legal system and if they could not win in the legal system... Then they should have simply left the nation.

I have zero sympathy for the entire south, no union general killed enough confederates and slave owners.

"high taxes on southern produce was the main cause of the civil war.........BS"

You are correct BS, but South Carolina had no legal grounds to leave the Union because of taxes and tarrifs. They thought they had, and probably did have, an out with the Federal Gov't not upholding the Constitution.

"A geographical line has been drawn across the Union, and all the States north of that line have united in the election of a man to the high office of President of the United States, whose opinions and purposes .............blah, blah"

How does any of THAT break the COMPACT???????

Poor analysis.

That's an interesting and timely article, and I highly recommend it. One may disagree with various parts, but it still has good points of contention. A couple of demographic maps (linked in the article) are also good.

Outdoors:

The southerners wouldn't have been so beaten if they stopped acting like primitives and started embracing equality, the entire human race as their equal, and actually cared for other humans besides themselves.

Sadly, it is easier to remain the example of the human Ape, rather than the Human Being which each of us is fully capable of being.
