|Just for grins, particularly my ardent Northern fans.
West Virginia, seceeded from Virginia even though a majority of Virginia voted to side with the South.
The Federal Government deemed it proper for West Virginia to seceed.
West Virginia and the Union even used Union forces to force counties into West Virginia and committed voter fraud.
Did the Federal Government speak out of both sides of their mouth?
Did the Union interfere in a Sovereign State's right to self determination?
Did the US Government help create an illegal state, West Virginia, while denying Virginia the same rights?
What say you all?
