Make no mistake about it, the "Lost Cause" notwithstanding the war was fought for States Rights and the right of the States to legally enforce the slave laws. They are joined at the hip, although States Rights do emcompass a wider meaning.

Just once, I'd like to hear what right of any state was being threatened. I will accept that the slavers feared what might be. I will not accept that they could reject the results of a legal election with impunity.
