    The radical abolitionists in the north and the radical secessionists in the south drove the country into the war, I do believe and declare. I agree with the previous poster about relocating to Canada or, perhaps, the U.K. Many northerners fought to preserve the Union and not to free the slaves; no leftist PC spin can tell me that, outside of abolitionist federal commanders like Chamberlain or Shaw (products of the northern gentry for the most part), that the typical Yankee bluecoat really cared about the slaves.

    Neither one

    Neither one.

    The Constitution of the Confederate States of America allowed for the continued presence of negroes within its borders. That means that race-mixing could continue just as it had in the Union.

    I agree with Kiel here because the CSA Constitution dealt with Nigs so much, they should of pushed them all out or shipped them back to Africa. Another thing is that they would have been the same as the US because of its X-ian values.

    Since the divisive issue was slavery and not sectionalism, I would have been a Unionist, a repatriationist and not an emancipationist. Slavery was the basis of West Indian economics and this is why Charleston was the epicenter of nullification. Most of the South was not tied to slavery, although it existed unmolested there. North Carolina was settled by Virginians and their relationship with Bermuda wasn't part of the triangular trade. South Carolina was settled by Barbadians and their relationship was with the Bahamas, which was an integral slave colony. Later on, Jamaica and Florida were added to the British acquisitions and further weighed down the American People.

    I don't know enough about this issue to vote. It would be a whole new complicated subject to research which I am not inclined to do at present (and it's enough to just look into what I am currently trying to find the truth of ... ie, WWI and WWII).


    Of course what mainstream society has always simply told me was it was about slavery ... end of story. However, I believe I've heard at least enough to question whether there was far more to it than merely what mainstream society wants me to think (as with many other historical issues).

    The North, and live as far north and away from 'da darkies' as I could afford to.

    I should add, both of my immigrant families lived in the south and my Dad's side were slave owners. I wouldn't own one, I don't even want to be around them let alone have one working for me.

    While my predecessors never owned slaves, I concur, Herr Rentz. I want nothing to do with non-whites, or white lefties.

    My family was not even here yet, so I often wonder what really happened. We know what we are taught is wrong and filled with propaganda.

    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    It's hard to say. I would think people from that time would support the area in which they lived. It would be hard to support the North if you were from the South and vice versa. It took ages to get info, news, etc. too so you couldn't just do a little side research to figure out which side was better to support. You couldn't just up and move either. I'm sure women had no choice but to support their own troops because they had dads, brothers, sons and husbands prepared to fight.

    I selected 'The Union', after much deliberation on the matter.

    My home State of Indiana sided with the Union. And my home town, Terre Haute, housed Southern POWs.

    Southern influence



    Governor, Congressman and Senator Oliver H.P. Morton

    The Civil War era showed the extent of the South's influence on Indiana. Much of southern and central Indiana had strong ties to the South. Many of Indiana's early settlers had come from the Confederate state of Virginia and from Kentucky. Governor Morton once complained to President Lincoln that "no other free state is so populated with southerners", which Morton believed kept him from being as forceful as he wanted to be.
