Only 3 thumbs down come on people your are slipping I Only tell the Truth the Flag represents the Honor of the south Lincolns war had No Honor Or approval of Congress
Long Live the confederate flag
it shows the True legal flag of the south we all Know that Lincolns war was to save his empire
Consider a few rarely spoken facts:
-Northern General U.S. Grant continued to hold a slave for nearly a year after the war. In fact, it took an act of Congress to finally free the man from Grant’s possession.
-Northern General Tecumseh Sherman was arrested many times for brutally abusing several of his slaves.
Conversely, Confederate General Robert E. Lee freed all of his slaves prior to the start of the war. That act by the military leader of the South truly displays that for the Confederacy, the war was only about states’ rights and a just rebellion against tyranny–not about slavery!
the people of the South had the Right to leave and were Murdered By the Union army this is what was Being Taught In West Point
"Another erroneous view of the great struggle, very generally held in the North,
is that the South waged the war to perpetuate slavery. Nothing could be further
from the truth. The war was fought for constitutional liberty and slavery was
only an incident to the -great question." New York Times Book Review, Dec.
26 ,1908, communicated.
"This public opinion (now prevalent in the South) positively demands that
teachers of history, both in the colleges and high schools, shall subscribe un-
reservedly to two trite oaths: (i) That the South was altogether right in seceding
from the Union in 1861; and (2) that the war was not waged about the *****."
"Historical scholarship has settled the fact that according to the
interpretation of the American Constitution up to the time of the Civil War
the Southern States did have the right to secede from the Union," and General
Adams adds, "The whole opposite contention from the days of Andrew Jackson
and Daniel Webster to i860 is thus summarily dismissed."
yes, the rights of all states and the express intent of the authors of the constitution were trampled.
I think if you look at the history of where the signers of the Constitution had just been in terms of trying to extricate themselves from a relationship with Great Britain, it makes sense that they would have insisted on safeguards to ensure that if a similar situation presented itself again, they would be able to leave quickly and easily. When you read the words of southern people in the late 1850s, it is clear that they feel that people far away who have no knowledge of the realities of southern life are trying to dictate terms.
Yes, he violated the Constitution.
this is constitutional Proof that Lincoln only wanted to Kill americans
U.S. Constitution "The Right To Secede" March 4, 1789
The first union of the original 13 colonies was effected by the Articles of Confederation, adopted in 1781. The articles established a confederation of sovereign states in a permanent union. The "permanence" lasted only until 1788, when 11 states withdrew from the confederation and ratified the new Constitution, which became effective on March 4, 1789. The founding fathers recognized the defects in the Articles of Confederation, learned from these defects, and scrapped the articles in favor of the "more perfect union" found in the Constitution.
Nowhere in the Constitution is there any mention of the union of the states being permanent. This was not an oversight by any means. Indeed, when New York, Rhode Island, and Virginia ratified the Constitution, they specifically stated that they reserved the right to resume the governmental powers granted to the United States. Their claim to the right of secession was understood and agreed to by the other ratifiers, including George Washington, who presided over the Constitutional Convention and was also a delegate from Virginia. In his book Life of Webster Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge writes, "It is safe to say that there was not a man in the country, from Washington and Hamilton to Clinton and Mason, who did not regard the new system as an experiment from which each and
every State had a right to peaceably withdraw."
A textbook used at West Point before the Civil War, A View of the Constitution, written by Judge William Rawle, states, "The secession of a State depends on the will of the people of such a State."
