|Many people in the south still refer to the Civil War as the war of northern aggression. That says much in itself. The American Flag didn't fly over Vicksburg for 80 years after it fell. The 14th Amendment was really punitive toward the south and was much resented. I really think, though, it was the democratic party that never got over it and has resented it ever since. They were the party that seceded over the issue of slavery, kept segregation alive in the south, and, if you look today remain very bitter toward the American people as whole. I here make reference to the Health Care bill which 65-70% of Americans disapprove of but which they are going to push down our throats anyway.
