    Then how did the South get congress to pass the Fugitive Slave Act if they didn't have the votes?

    Yes, in 2013. Oh, the MS Congress voted to ratify it in 1995 (130 years AFTER the Civil War ended), but it was never made official until two years ago. They claimed it was because of an 'administrative oversight'...but that didn't fool anyone - we all knew the reason why...the same reason they didn't vote on it at all until 1995.

    This is part of our Southern heritage - and it's not something to be proud of.

    secession = revolution = treason (Art III, sec. 3: Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them,.....

    When rebels opened fire on Ft. Sumter on April 12, 1861 the act of treason against the United States was committed.

    Seccession = rebellion. There, fixed it for you. In case you didn't notice, I'm a stickler for historical accuracy.

    Read reply #1422 - the 'Cornerstone' speech by the vice president of the Confederacy. Read it, then get back to me on precisely why we in the South were NEVER shown that speech in our history classes.

    You wouldn't know the truth if it slapped you in the face. You're so soaked in the lies and bigotry of your beloved grandaddy that you're incapable of even learning a fact that would violate the mythology you allowed him to create in your head. The more I read from you the more I see scenes from what the KKK version of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" would have been like. Was grandaddy a member or was he one of the "aristocratic southern gentlemen" who supported it at arm's length and relied on the lower elements of the south to carry out the dirty work?

    You're talking to a young woman who will not even concede the word Slavery is in the Confederate Constitution.

    When I debated her years ago (on another board) - she would say over and over how there were actually more slaves in the North than the South. She really didn't know. To this day, I think she doesn't even believe the census numbers after having had it thrown in her face 4,000 times.

    There's some severe level of brainwashing that went on there to whitewash grandpapee's Confederacy.

    But the south never grew up and got over the fact that it lost and did not break away and wouldn't have slavery any more. So much so that they instituted a brutal state-sanctioned system which continued the bondage and degradation of southern blacks for generations longer--a de facto form of slavery and oppression.
