  •  War of NORTHERN agression? (15+ / 0-)

    I would like to point out that the so-called "War of NORTHERN aggression" was started by the SOUTH!  The shots fired by the hotheads in Charleston at Fort Sumter started a war they were arrogantly confident they would win!  The US Federal government was not yet on a war footing, and only became so because war was forced on them.  The southern apologists would LOVE to make the world think that they HAD to go to war to "save their way of life"...but what was that way of life? The "right" to hold other human beings in slavery...the "right" to base an entire economy upon the forced life-long labor of an artificially-maintained permanent slave race of humans, and supported by a midieval viewpoint of "chivalry" which enforced classes in society that never crossed the boundaries.  "Protect our heritage"... what a load of CRAP!
