"There were plenty of men willing to give up democracy for slavery, not as many willing to give up slavery for democracy..."

I like that, blunt and to the point and damned hard to dodge.

Suffice it to say OI once might have agreed wholeheartedly w/ JOanie.  Then I started to seriously read (blame Neil)and books like Apostles of Disunion by Dew made me reconsider and eventually completely change my opinion.

Secession was about Slavery; there's just too much evidence to convince me otherwise.  Hell the words of the men make it pointedly obvious.  It wasn't till after te war that those leaders f the Secession movement started stepping and fetching to cover their tracks and make it something it wasn't.
