  • Funny how republicans generally say Confederate when their founder said Union. It's funny how an ideology can change but the name doesn't.

  • Even with how much I love Texas I would never fight a battle I am going to loose especially for an asinine cause like slavery.

  • How was the Confederates the tougher ones? All they had was cotton. The Union had more of a population, more industry, more rail roads, the Morse Code. The reason why the South held out for so long was that they new the land and used Guerilla Tactics. They could've made an ally with their trade product, cotton, but Britain just made Egypt produce it. And the rest saw no point to fight the Union.

  • Well I had 3 Union ancestors 1 at gettysburg and the south is racist.

@SweetTea- Wow. I made one mistake.

Mishapqueen ... Racists are everywhere! But many of our Founding Fathers freed their slaves, when they died. This suggests that they either opposed the idea all along, or (as in George Washington's case) came to realize it was wrong morally & even outdated from the labor standpoint. Some people evolve. Others just can't seem to muster it!

Texans14 ... Imagine you are offered a lottery ticket. Now, imagine that you have the winning ticket. Would you want that check written for $1.00 or $1,000,000.00? Putting the decimal in the wrong place is an expensive mistake. Yet, it's just a little one.

I'm really laughing so hard at the way a lot of republicans voted for the Confed but love the GOP

The confederates didn't even want to secede, they just saw the Union as a foreign army invading their home.

Are you trying to say the south didn't try to secede from the Union when the federal government said they were going to end slavery, placed tariffs, and had raised taxes then Abraham Lincoln said oh no you don't and kicked their a$$es because they tried running off?
