Now lets don't intertwine the war with the secession. They are two seperate events in my mind... but for the states to just walk out...
Sorry, Ed, but I can't buy into that.  Secession and the war are all part of the same fuse that led to war.  The spark is slavery, the fuse is secession, which led to the war.  They are all intertwined, for without one of them missing from the equation/fuse, no war.  IMO.
Blue, I am sorry, but we just have to agree to disagree on this issue.. they were seperate up until the firing on Sumpter... No Sumpter, no war..


By the way, TD has done a much better job of explaining what I was trying to get at. Thanks TD
Ed, I understand and have no problem with the idea that we have two different points-of-view on the topic.


As for TDs post, I hope you read and enjoyed our exchange as much as I did.  I look forward to more from him.

Thanks again for your time and input.
