Hey, here’s an interesting bit of info: the Civil War wasn’t about slavery! It was about states’ rights!
Let me give you a quote. (I love good quote) This is from Jefferson Davis, the President of the Confederacy, during his inaugural address on February 18, 1861.
“Our present political position has been achieved in a manner unprecedented in the history of nations. It illustrates the American idea that goverments rest on the consent of the governed, and that it is the right of the people to alter or abolish them at will whenever they become destructive of the ends for which they were established.”
Did you know they had that right? They did. Know what else? We still do.
