    So it was up to the taxpayers of the north to build up the defenses of Charleston just so South Carolina could steal it?

    Essentially, what all of you pro-Confederacy people are saying is that if you say something is yours, it's yours. That's not how property rights have ever worked. That's not how independence has ever worked. Many groups have declared their independence without every acquiring it. The Confederacy falls under that category. The declared it, but never got it. Why on Earth you're trying to pretend that they're immune from the reality that all those other groups exist in is beyond me.

    You don't understand do you?
    Here
    If you were once a part of a country and you paid taxes... and now you choose to split. You own all of the land in your territory. The southern territory was all the states that succeeded and everything in it but the humans*. The states made a decision.

    *Minus blacks cuz they were property back then.
