    no, what is laughable is your denial of the significant role slavery played in the South's decision to secede. I call it historical revisionism.

    Lincoln said that if he could preserve the union, he would leave slavery intact.

    Its not hard at all. What is hard to take is you pontificating about the civil war era as it you actually know something when your credibility has been trashed and smashed, crushed and flushed, and destroyed beyond any semblance of recognition.

    You LIED. Pure and simple. Here it is from apdst

    What I will do, however, prove that all 11 Confederate states and 3 border states had state wide referendums on secession.
    You will able to provide proof for three. Thats it. three. You lied about what you could do and you still lie now in perpetuating this fraud.

    yes, his claim that all the states of the CSA had a referendum on secession, appears to have been a lie.
