    you can act as though something does not exist, while it did.

    the confederate states were part of america, and they remained americans whether you like it or not

    The Union was fighting to preserve the Union.

    It was only until halfway through the war it pivoted on slavery.

    The South, however, went to war to preserve, protect and expand slavery.

    do Canadians call themselves Canadians americans?....no?

    do Mexicans in Mexico call themselves Mexican americans...no?

    the southern states called themselves the confederate states of america, just as the united states of america.

    is there a RULE that says the confederate states Citizens cannot call themselves americans?
