    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?


    They're Southern losers and redneck trailer trash.

    this is clearly being a bigot.

    the south was winning the war until 1863, which turned against them, because of shortages, lack of industry.

    If I'm remembering incorrectly, why was there such resistance to the IronClad Oath ("Damnesty") ?
    An easier to defend stance would be that voters entrusted their elected officials to represent their interests and that those officials in the Confederacy betrayed their citizens. Punishing the voters was just wrong.
