    So did the north. Shouldn't they get something for their investment?

    Sure you have. I bring up points and you play this little "nuh-uh" game. I can't pinpoint how to describe it but it's something I've been picking up on.

    Can someone explain to me why the Confederates had property rights for Fort Sumter?

    Actually, yes. Can you show me when the United States gave up property rights? I don't recall the government ever signing that contract.

    No, property rights don't mean **** if you don't OWN the property any longer.
