  • They fought and died in America's Second Revolution more of a just cause than the first revolutionary war. States (We the People) entered the union with their own volition and had a right to secede. Lincoln acknowledged this right (long before he became President) as well as other prominent persons and newspaper editors. Even France and England knew the war was not about freeing slaves the war was protecting the Northern economy and Lincolns lobby of wealthy Yankee businessmen not to mention Lincoln and his Presidency over the Union. Today, we live under a tyrannical government and good producers are taxed to death to subsidize unjust wars, corruption, and feed the 100 million peeps on welfare. The beginning of the end of the original vision of America was 1860 when Lincoln became President.
  • "We have gathered the sacred dust of warriors tried and true, who bore the flag of our nation's trust, and fell in the cause 'tho lost, still just, and died for me and you."
