    Of what exactly? Especially considering the northern revisionism I've seen in the anti column.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I guess we solved that one.
    I don't think the point was ever in contention....

    i'm wondering if you'll get around to addressing the reasons they were not officially recognized.
    I'll give you a hint... the union basically threatened them with war if they did... and beings as though the the commerce they did with the south was not of the necessary sort, they had more to benefit from not recognizing them and keeping the peace with the union.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I brought this point up earlier. Basically all the governments said was "Country? I don't see you trading with some other country that doesn't officially exist. *whistles innocently*"

    I made that claim and you haven't proven anything. The british did not buy cotton made by slave labor. They decided to get cotton from india instead.

    Put a modern spin on it, and let's say Abkhazia sent an emissary to Washington, and this person stuck around to keep trying. Does that mean that the United States recognizes Abkhazia?

    No. Those muslims would be seceding from a unitary state (England). We are discussing whether one of our sovereign states is legally empowered to withdraw from the compact into which it voluntarily entered.
