    the people of the south were born in america, they have the ability [right] to call themselves americans just as the north did.

    no, they threw away their "right" the minute they swore oaths to a different constitution, waved a new flag, and went around killing Americans.

    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?
    So they could call themselves Confederate Americans.

    Who wanted nothing to do with the United States of America.

    Happily, there's was a four year traitorous stint that didn't end well and they're all dead and gone now.

    The War was about slavery for the South.

    It was about Union for the North.

    how can they be traitors...since you just stated they "wanted nothing to do with the u.s."

    treason involves aiding an enemy in time of war.....the southerns state were not attempting to overthrow the federal government.

    wrong, you need to read the declarations of each state, ...which i know you have not.

    you would see the some states seceded because they did not like what northern states and the federal government was doing to the south.....violating federal law, harassing southern citizens and stealing property.

    They made war on the US. They seized Federal property all over the South and fired on US Ships and Forts. They were traitors.

    Stop playing dumb.
