    No, the CSA attempted to send diplomats to Washington to negotiate a peaceful separation, but they were turned away. This was followed shortly by the Union Declaring War on the Confederate States. Or are you going to deny both of these facts as well.

    who began hostilities?

    Dixy did, when they launched an unprovoked attack against Federal property, Ft. Sumter.

    No, I call them assholes.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Actually, the fort being occupied was the agressive act.

    Wrong again. We've already been down this road, but likely due to thread tardation syndrome, it seems you've made a U-turn somewhere.

    you are lying. the South started hostilities with the unprovoked attack upon Ft. Sumter, after the CSA demanded its surrender.

    I think our side is looking at this the wrong way. We are trying to look at the whole truth which makes each side look bad but quite possibly makes the north look a little worse. Maybe we should all just try to make history fit our ideology like the other side and then this thread can just close since we'll all "be right" no matter what.

    Sarcasm off.

    Keep repeating that, it may come true. It probably won't, but it just might if you really really believe it in your heart.
