    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.
    Very revealing how you differentiate African Americans from humans.

    So did someone else pay for your house? Or did you pay for your house?

    Here, maybe we need to bring this back to basics.
    Secession | Define Secession at Dictionary.comse·ces·sion
    noun 1.an act or instance of seceding.

    2.(often initial capital letter) U.S. History. the withdrawal from the Union of 11 Southern states in the period 1860–61, which brought on the Civil War.



    Also, treaties are only as good as both parties agreeing. The Constitution is a legally binding treaty, the north failed to uphold their end, the south finally had enough. Both sides handled things incorrectly but the north essentially committed trespass.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    You don't understand do you? First, the states had no independent legal right to any of that property. They were never not a part of the union. Second, Fort Sumter was federal property - it was paid for with Northern taxes as well and the North didn't relinquish any rights.

    Essentially, the Confederates said "this is mine" with no legal documents to support it and then shot people when they didn't obey their paperless demands and you think that signifies property rights. It doesn't.
