My whole problem with defenders of secession is that they want to rationalize secession as being entirely reasonable. Secession was a radical, hot headed and illegal action that plunged the country into war, devastated the southern people and the southern economy for almost 100 years and killed 750,000 brave souls on both sides.

I agree, we won't agree, but not becuse of facts!

Why can't we honor our ancestors by accepting the obvious lessons from the Civil War? Isn't the death of 750,000 enough evidence that secession was a bad idea?
