    The American civil war, why did we fight it?

    I could not find my old thread so.... It is funny how the reasons were spelled out by the confederate leaders and its supporters but today most can't read there own words and except them. Trying to rewrite history to make there family treason look patriotic maybe?

    Now I am sure there were many personal reasons people/families fought but the biggest reason was spelled out in there own words in black and white.

    So so what are you so proud of again while sporting that rebel flag?



    keep reading the cecession documents spell out the reasons and all mention slavery.

    Please don't respond with your feelings. Use history or just sound like a defender of the above. The flag maker the president the Vice President of the confederate states all claimed a superior race was the driving reason for the war? IN THERE OWN WORDS! So how was it not about slavery and just made to look that way now?

    So the cecession documents, the leaders own writings, and the symbol(flag) was all about slavery. So how was this war about states rights? Other than the right to own people? How was this economic other than it is impossible to compete with someone who has slaves in there workforce? Did the cecession documents say anything about economic issues? No....... Now from the northern perspective it was not about slavery but it all depends from what view point you look. The northerners wanted to keep the union together the south wanted to keep slaves....... Those were the motivators as I can see it. So the Confederate states fought over slaves and the north fought to keep the country together for what ever reason.

    Dude, your last thread was merged into the political thread, where it should be.
    Most of your questions were answered over there.

    well; Fergeson would/should answer your question.
    Rodney King riots,
    ...watts

    they certainly aren't setting the bar any higher for themselves as we pass through history.

    ,,,maybe we should re-write that to state that Einstein was a gay, black muslim?

    Totally different topic. One was about a flag this is about the war itself. And I can't find any political area, Where is it? I wanted to use the old thread.

    Someone is welcome to merge them if they will kindly show me where it is.

    Unfortunately like with all history, it is written by the winners of the wars/elections so we we never know the whole truths about any of it.

    A democrat was responsible for the start of the Civil War and when they couldn't win that they formed the KKK. When that drew to much heat they looked for other ways to control the black population such as we see today welfare, abortion, education system etc.
    Plenty of books out there explaining what you are asking just make sure they were written pre 1978 that's before the Department of DeeEducation was formed!
