The question is: what kind of country would we have today without the righteousness of the Northern cause that preserved the Union? Or would we have two countries, one free and one slave, or just a slave nation as Union Gen. McClellan wanted? Arguing the righteousness of a cause that sought to allow one man to enslave another, unfortunately,had to be decided on the battlefields of the Civil War. Once it was over, even the Confederacy's most stellar patriot Robert E. Lee accepted the outcome and sought to have his national citizenship restored.
One without a increasingly intrusive centralized federal government, one without income tax, and probably one without a national debt of 16 trillion dollars.
