Well lets see what we have here so far.

The Union/Northern states have to have something to be proud of to justify the deaths of 300,000 Union soldiers that got suckered into fighting Lincoln's War.

So the Union was fighting to "free the slaves" despite the fact that they still had slaves.

The Union was fighting against the independence and freedom of the South, despite the fact that our country always fights for freedom and independence of other countries.

The Union was fighting to stop the South from leaving the Union because their Government loved the South's money so much they would send hundreds of thousands of suckers to fight and die to keep the South from leaving.

They totally forgot that our nation was born of secession against England's rule and it was perfectly legal for states to secede at that time.

And the Union was fighting for gay marriage.

It was not "legal" to secede from the England, you notice both sides fought a war to see which side would prevail. Had it been legal King George would have agreed to the disunion.

The only "freedom" that the confederacy wanted was to keep other people as slaves (as written up by the confederate states in their secession documents and speeches).

Has it been posted in this missive how many slaves or % of population the union states had at the outbreak of the war?

All armies have had gay warriors, previously they just lied about it.

Funny how in the 1864 election Lincoln received 78% of the union soldiers vote. They apparently had different views than yours.

Maybe they were just fighting to take them away from your ancestors. And they did.

They won freedom and independence for 4 Milllion southerners.

You just kinds forgot the part where the seceding states committed acts of war against the Union.

The revolutionary war was not secession it was revolution. The colonies had no part of the Government of England. Remember that whole "Taxation without representation" thing?

I'm sorry what is it you are saying here? That a lot of southern males were shacking up in gay relationships and the North went to war to make them get married?

The position of the Lincoln administration was the same as before the war started. That slavery where it already existed in the states was was a matter for the states to decide.

But that Congress did have the power to prevent the expansion of slavery into new territories.

The first shots fired by the south were not aimed at "the north". They were aimed at the federal state. We're still paying for it to this day. This message has been controlled through state education for generations to where most have a completely inaccurate view of the 'civil war'.

Coincidently, I posted an article in another thread today that may help answer your questions:

http://www.lewrockwell.com/dilorenzo/dilorenzo185.html

In 1961 Life magazine invited the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and novelist Robert Penn Warren (author of All the King’s Men, and nineteen other novels) to record his thoughts on the meaning of the American “Civil War” on the centennial of that event. Warren responded with a long essay on the “symbolic value of the war” which was eventually published as a small book entitled The Legacy of the Civil War.

If Robert Penn Warren were to write this book today, he would be loudly condemned as an Enemy of Society (and a “Neo-Confederate&rdquo by all the usual defenders of the central state, from race-hustling “civil rights” activists to beltway “libertarians” and of course, the Lincoln Cult. For example, he wrote (p. 7) that in addition to slavery, there was a “tissue of causes” of the war, including the dispute over the constitutionality of secession, “the mounting Southern debt to the North, economic rivalry, Southern fear of encirclement, Northern ambitions, and cultural collisions . . .”

There were also economic causes of the war apart from slavery, Robert Penn Warren believed. “The Morrill tariff of 1861 actually preceded the firing on [Fort] Sumter, but it was the mark of Republican victory and an omen of what was to come; and no session of Congress in the next four years failed to raise the tariff.”

“Even more importantly,” Warren wrote, “came the establishment of a national banking system . . . and the issuing of national greenbacks . . . plus government subsidy [to corporations].” “Hamilton’s dream” of a large national debt was also realized, and “this debt meant a new tax relation of the citizen to the Federal government, including the new income tax” [introduced by the Lincoln administration for the first time].

“Out of the Civil War came the concept of total war,” i.e., the bombing, plundering, and mass murdering of civilians. In this regard, Warren quotes an 1862 speech by Lincoln in which he said, “The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present . . . . As our case is new, we must think anew, and act anew.” That is, “we” must abandon the law of nations with regard to the criminality of waging war on civilians, and “we” must abandon the U.S. Constitution as well, since it is one of the chief “dogmas of the quiet past.”

A major theme of The Legacy of the Civil War is that the war left the North (which is to say, the U.S. government) with “a treasury of virtue” (p. 54). This is the “psychological heritage” left to the North, and it is an insidious heritage, wrote Robert Penn Warren. “The Northerner, with his Treasury of Virtue, feels redeemed by history . . . . He has in his pocket, not a Papal indulgence peddled by some wandering pardoner of the Middle Ages, but an indulgence, a plenary indulgence, for all sins past, present, and future . . .” (emphasis added).

Thus, this “treasury of virtue” would become the excuse for why the U.S. government would commence a twenty-five year campaign of extermination against the Plains Indians just three months after Appomattox; shamelessly rob the treasury for the benefit of railroad corporations; plunder the South for a decade after the war under the laughable guise of “reconstruction”; murder more than 200,000 Filipinos who opposed being ruled by the American empire after having escaped from the imperialistic clutches of the Spanish empire; and enter a European war that was none of our business to supposedly “make the world safe for democracy.” It was all done in the name of virtue, freedom, and democracy, or so we are told.

Robert Penn Warren called this “moral narcissism” (p. 72). It is “a poor basis for national policy,” he wrote, but is the “justification” for “our crusades of 1917–1918 and 1941–1945 and our diplomacy of righteousness, with the slogan of unconditional surrender and universal spiritual rehabilitation for others” (emphasis added).

Posing as The Most Virtuous Humans to Ever Inhabit the Planet requires that many “facts get forgotten,” wrote Robert Penn Warren. For example:

It is forgotten that the Republican platform of 1860 pledged protection to the institution of slavery where it existed, and that the Republicans were ready, in 1861, to guarantee slavery in the South, as bait for a return to the Union. It is forgotten that in July, 1861, both houses of Congress, by an almost unanimous vote, affirmed that the War was waged not to interfere with the institutions of any state but only to maintain the Union. It is forgotten that the Emancipation Proclamation . . . was limited and provisional: slavery was to be abolished only in the seceded states and only if they did not return to the Union before the first of the next January (p. 61).

It must also be forgotten, wrote Warren, that most Northern states “refused to adopt Negro suffrage” and that Lincoln was as much a white supremacist as any man of his time. “It is forgotten that Lincoln, at Charlestown, Illinois, in 1858, formally affirmed: I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races.”

Thus, after so much history is forgotten, and much of the rest of it rewritten as a string of fairy tales, “the War appears, according to this doctrine of the Treasury of Virtue, as a consciously undertaken crusade so full of righteousness that there is enough overplus stored in Heaven, like the deeds of the saints, to take care of all small failings and oversights of the descendants of the crusaders, certainly unto the present generation” (p. 64).

Warren quotes the historian Samuel Eliot Morison as commenting that one effect of this Treasury of Virtue on his (Morison’s) native New England was that “In the generation to come that region would no longer furnish the nation with teachers and men of letters, but with a mongrel breed of politicians” obsessed with “profiteering” through their political connections.

Among other effects are that “the man of righteousness tends to be so sure of his own motives that he does not need to inspect consequences.” And, “the effect of the conviction of virtue is to make us lie automatically and awkwardly . . . and then in trying to justify the lie, lie to ourselves and transmute the lie into a kind of superior truth.” This, I would argue, is a perfect definition of so-called “Lincoln scholarship,” especially the Straussian variety.

Warren believed that most Americans are content with all of these lies about their own history, the results of “the manipulations of propaganda specialists, and their sometimes unhistorical history” (p. 79). For they “are prepared to see the Civil War as a fountainhead of our power and prestige among the nations” (p. 76). They have been good and brainwashed as obedient little nationalists, in other words, who place a very high value on the “prestige” of the American state as bully of the world.

This is yet another dire consequence of the war: Americans came to believe in Alexander Hamilton’s notion that the “prestige” of the state through its pursuit of “imperial glory” was a legitimate function of government. Limiting the role of government to the protection of God-given natural rights to life, liberty, and property became one of Lincoln’s “dogmas of the quiet past.”
Not really. The South was all for the enslavement of Africans and wished to extend slavery deep into Mexico and the Caribbean. The South was also for Free Trade (no taxes on imports).

So in a twisted manner we kinda have what the South wanted (all of us are enslaved and the govt supports Free Trade which equates to Globalism).

Kinda.

I'm from South Louisiana and I support this message. LOL!

For many here that would be the Confederate BATTLE Flag.

Read the books.

Slavery was on its way out well before the war and would have passed PEACEFULLY from the scene as it did everywhere else in this hemisphere w/o a war that killed over 700k Americans (and maimed tens of thousands more) including thousands of innocent Southern civilians against then international law. I'm not counting the destruction of over half of the country, and hundreds of millions in 1860's dollars lost for nothing. Oh Yes! I guess there was SOMETHING. The wonton destruction of our Constutitional Republic, and states rights, and the installation of our current all powerfull anti constitutional government.

But it was all worth it to fight said war (supposedly to end something that was dying even then) 150 years ago, and is still costing us billions of dollars each year to solve the problems the war began.

You "won".

You got what you asked for.

What are you Lincoln lovers so upset about!!??

Dance and sing!

As the bar keep said to the horse who walked into his bar....

"Hey buddy! WHAT'S WITH THE LONG FACE?!

Oh. Bravo Chui....
BRAVO!!

If slavery was dying out, why did Article 1, section 9(4) of the Confederate Constitution guarantee the perpetuity of slavery?

"No bill of attainder, expostfacto law or law denying or impairing the right in negro slaves shall be passed."

Slavery was dying out. That is why the southern states seceded. That was the only way the rich plantation owners could guarantee it wouldn't.

Read the books Clancy. I have waited for ANYONE to refute the books I have offered concerning slavery and the South. Still no takers whatsoever. Big surprise.

Slavery was how cotton, corn, tobacco, et al ad infinitim was produced. It didn't start overnight nor would it be ended overnight w/o a major economic meltdown. There was no machnery capable of producing outside the factories in 1861, and if there were it wasn't available in the South. No one could have possibly forseen the extent of the power of steam and industrial revolution that was just begining to gain ground in 1861. Like it or not it was how things were done then. If there had been another way it would have been found and the slaves been sent back to wonderfull dear old Africa. This was 1861 not 2012. Its too bad today we don't have Warp Drive and photon torpedos, but we have to muddle through with what we have.

As I have stated here before, slavery existed here in the nation for 98 years before Lincoln's war. It existed before that back to the time of the colonies. It existed before that back into the dim mists of time for centuries. But only the South is condemned for it because the truth cannot be made known to the American people.

Of course the southern leaders gave their offical stamp of approval to slavery. They had no choice even if they had wanted otherwise. Thomas Jefferson stated that slavery was akin to holding a wolf by the ears. We couldn't hold on but were afraid to let go. The U.S. government treated freed blacks like chattle for decades after the war. They used them for what they wanted and cast them aside, but blacks are, on the whole, still on the U.S. government plantation. Funny how there is no hue and cry over that.

The only thing that twists everyones knickers is something that hasn't existed here in 145 years. Forget about the death, destruction, the trillions of dollars, our lost Constutitional republic, and our rights. That means nothing.

But you got what you wanted.
You got what you deserved.
I still don't see what the fuss is about.
Why the long face?
