    Why 1861?

    I imagine it either has something to do with the War of Southern Aggression or Lincoln, who was sworn in in early 1861.

    More to do with the invasion of a sovereign state by federal troops with no authority.

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    Yeah. Looking back I think a serious mistake was made by allowing the Feds to surrender Fort Sumter and leave without losing a single man. Probably shoulda just killed them all...... Sends the best message, ya know.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. War of Southern Aggression?!? That's cute.

    The beginning of the end of states rights began with the election of Lincoln the Tyrant and was sealed on April 9, 1865. Without the 10th Amendment or the threat of secession the federal government had the power and arrogance to rule with an iron fist and that day has finally come.

    DisHonest Abe planned to invade the South, regardless of the outcome of the Sumter affair so perhaps the best lesson to take from dealing with the yankees/progressives/communists is to give no quarter.

    Enough already, we get it, you're still sore from your pride (and ass) being spanked by freedom loving Northern forces.

    The UN is working to eliminate free speech on a global scale, and you're refighting FT Sumpter? Really?

    How do you justify calling them 'freedom loving' when they subjugated a nation of people who had declared their independence?
