Re: Who more closely represented the United States created in 1776? (Read first)
I chose the Union, for the reasons above, and also that the South seceded even though it was getting proper representation with its taxes. In fact, they got more representation than should have, considering they were able to count slaves as partial population. That does not represent the Declaration of Independence in anyway, and is truly a blemish in American history. I find it a bit embarrassing that we had to have a war over whether or not we should be able to own people, and that to this day, the side that lost is still angry over that and still says that they should have won.
I have a great-aunt who will not let anyone say the name "Lincoln" in her house. Comical at best.
