    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    all of them....just like i viewed each photgraph he posted and found only one person that was not identified as a slave, although there is nothing to say he wasn't either.

    here's the deal.......nearly all blacks who serve in the confederate army were slaves or servants of some kind. i'm not revis9ing anything. there may have been a few who actully fought with white men, but the number is miniscule. much ado about absolutely nothing. the original topic of this post was that blacks owned slaves, and while a very few did, they did so for benevolent reasons. oscar and apdst both have their heads so far up their asses on this topic that they could chew their food twice.

    your "to [sic] stupid" comment made me think of this post:

    If you and your dearly beloved are married while atheist, and later one converts to Islam, this is grounds for divorce. One the one hand you are entitled to legally sue for divorce, but on the other hand the state can't charge someone for holding a given religious preference, as that would be prejudice and discriminatory.

    So the state tosses it into the 'irreconcilable differences' box, divides assets as normal, and issues the decree for the divorce which was started due to religious conflict.

    So yes, the vows do set the terms for the marriage even when the State has to deal with those terms through 'irreconcilable differences'.
    you assert that a law has been broken when a couple take vows and then change, resulting in divorce due to irreconcilable differences
    too stupid


    but prove me wrong and point us to the law you insist was broken with the vows
    google it for us ...
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

The Native Guard tried to gain notoriety by offering their service to escort Union prisoners, captured from Manassas, through New Orleans. Despite the Confederacy choosing white militiamen instead, the Native Guard still participated in two other grand reviews. When the Louisiana State Legislature passed a law in January 1862 that reorganized the militia by conscripting “all the free white males capable of bearing arms… irrespective of nationality”, the 1st Louisiana Native Guard was also affected. It was forced to disband on February 15, 1862, and many of its white officers reassigned to the new Confederate regiments.

    So they "paraded"??

    And the wingnuts thinks this means they fought for the South?

    So what is the "real reason" the South seceded?

    Interestingly, the mountainous areas of the South largely voted against secession in the conventions. Coincidentally, these were areas where slave-holding was uncommon, as it was unprofitable. That's how we got the state of West Virginia. The drive of 'Manifest Destiny" was in part based on expanding slavery.

    It's all intertwined, and at the end of the day, all of the arguments for why the South seceded go back to slavery. "States Rights" -- a State's right to have slavery. "Different economies and societies" -- one of which was based on slave labor...

    These are all based on the South trying to deflect guilt over the existence of slavery, and started with the memoirs of Jefferson Davis. Now I don't blame them for seceding to protect their vital interests in an economy based on slavery, and I don't want to continue to hold down the South with this yoke. But saying that slavery was not the underpinning of secession is "revisionist."
