We're wandering somewhat. And I'll admit to be an active wanderer in the field of speculation and hypotheticals. I'm just not confident that the secesh were operating within the bounds of speculative logic.

Frankly, what I see is that a double-handful of radicals somehow managed to rile up enough voters to effect secession. And I'm not convinced that it was a real majority. Kinda like a bar fight. Your first reaction is to step aside, your next is to mix in on the side of your retarded, homicidal cousin who is just shy of certifiable. You're not mad at nobody, but it is, after all, your cousin. Blood. Water. Y'all know the routine.

Upshot: the common Southerner got hisself railroaded into a war that he couldn't win. After four years of gruesome death, he got his butt handed to him on a platter. I don't fault the southerner for that disaster. Just his leadership. He didn't ask for the fight; he just weighed in on the side of his retarded, homicidal cousin.

Just a thought.
