"To you, Sons of Confederate Veterans, we submit

the vindication of the cause for which we fought; to

your strength will be given the defense of the

Confederate soldier's good name, the guardianship of

his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation

of those principles he loved and which made him glorious and which you also cherish. Remember it is your duty to see that the true history of the South is presented to future generations."

Lt. General Stephen D. Lee

"Any people, anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable and most sacred right - a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world. Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government may choose to exercise it. Any portion of such people that can, may revolutionize, and make their own, of so many of the territory as they inhabit."
Abe Linclon   Jan 12 1848

Was the war about Slavery?

Written in a letter in 1862, Lincoln sets forth his main objective as president, "My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves, I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others along I would also do that." For Lincoln , the essence of the struggle was the restoration of the Union; beside it all other concerns paled to insignificance. I see the answer to this as NO. The union was his concern and whatever it took including killing millions was ok with him.
