    Since she asserted that the typical rebel soldier was uneducated she had to provide proof to back up this assertation. She failed to do so. I provided proof of my statements regarding literacy in the south.
    It's to bad...

    #1 We did not defend her statements. We attacked YOUR wronngful statement about her statement:

    #2 She AGAIN did not say the typical soilder was uneducated. She said "i am wondering just how educated the typical confederate soldier was."

    Everyone seems to know what she meant except you? Wonder why that is.

    #3 Literacy according to your own source does not equate education. The South also according to YOUR source says they were less educated.

    We are done here.

    She said that they were uneducated and provided no proof. Ergo, my statement about what she said is factually correct. Try again.

    Funny, but my source material shows that they were educated. You failed to show that they were uneducated.

    The only person that failed in this debate would be you. No proof means your argument fails. It must be nice to not have to provide proof for ignorant statements.

    And while the preamble and the federalist papers maigh be used to support arguments regarding the intention of the Constitution, we all know they carry no legal force.

    Question:
    If it is impossible to secede from the union, then it is impossible to re-admit 'secessionist' states to the union because they never actually left said union.

    HOWever, the 'secessionist' states, as part of their process for 're-admission' to the union, wre require to ratify the 13th-15th amendments.

    The federal government cannot force states to ratify amendments, and so weren't the 13th-15th were ratified unconstitutionally?

    Ah -- the "love it or leave it" argument.
    Be sure to recall this remark the next time a Republican-controlled government does someting you do not like.

    Um no....

    "i am wondering just how educated the typical confederate soldier was." does not equate "Are you saying that all southerners were uneducated and ignorant?"

    In fact her reply to your question was "no, i'm saying that the typical rebel soldier was uneducated."

    according to your article this was indeed the case.

    On top of that your were trying to be sarcastic because of her comment to Bicycleman about Robert E Lee.

    Going to lie some more?

    It shows they were literate, not educated as your source points out.
