    Yes it does. It was property of the United States military, not of South Carolina.

    Don't have to, you've been schooled across this forum on historical and constitutional issues. I've watched you contort your interpretations of these matters since you've been here.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Whatever that means.

    So I have arguments, court rulings, the Constitutional definition of treason and presidential documents ... and you have ... snark. Thank you for your concession. This was fun.
    I have the founders and even the author of the paper that says you are full of ****. You have people that just fought an illegal war trying to avoid jail.

    My point stands.

Or is it Won't?
    Wasn't the Confederacy founded on property rights? What gave South Carolina the right to take United States military property?

    Why. Every time I've tried to engage you all you've done is brush it off.

    Actually, you don't, but I can see that you're more interested in posturing and insulting than actually using logic. Suit yourself.

    The Confederate states committed treason by the definition in the Constitution. The end.

    It was on southern land, it was funded at least in part by southern dollars, the north and south split so the binding contracts and treaties were null and void. And finally, it was on southern land.
