The North or the South?

South Carolina, standing alone against northern aggression since 1860

Georgia...stomped by Sherman's march to the sea but ready to take on the Yankee pigs all over again!

The war was NOT about slaves. It was about states rights and the economic war the north was waging on the South.

Being below the Mason-Dixon Line here.

I guess I would have fought those above said line that crossed into our territory for whatever reason.

Oh....you mean the War of Northern Aggression. (I was born in Texas, after all....)

Still, would probably fight for the Union.

Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, justifies the slave culture of the South. I would do anything humanly possible to free another human being from that type of captivity. Sort of like what we just got done doing in Afghanistan and Iraq.

JDuncan 1 is right, the issue began as a state's rights issue...but that was quickly overcome by the realization of what the South was doing to the blacks. Once it became a moral issue, the entire North mobilized....and the South didn't have a chance. Add to that Lee's blunders shortly before and including Ghettysburg (he never should have entered Maryland--he lost the moral high ground of "we're simply protecting ourselves" when he did that) and the South was doomed to lose.

You know, I really don't know.

I've always considered myself more a Southerner than a Yankee. So I would probably end up fighting for the South.

Considering how much hatred we see in this country anymore (between the left and right), I would not be too surprised to see yet another Civil War in the not too distant future. There can only be bottled up hate so long before it starts to bubble over. But if it happens again, it won't be two geographic regions against each other, but rather red and blue states going at it. I suppose most of the South would be united however. But there would be many midwestern and Plains states also a part of the alliance, as well as some in the Mountain West.

The War of Northern Aggression had very little to do with Slavery. It was mostly about the Federals trying to tell the States what to do.
Link Posted: 9/19/2004 2:19:22 PM EST
In the War of northern Aggression, I would have fought for the South with my fellow North Carolina troops. Even though I would most likely not have been a slave owner (based on what I know of my family's economic history at the time), I would have fought for state's rights and to defend my home against northern invaders.

<pssst> There were a lot more Irish, Scots, and free Blacks working on the lines then there were Chinese. But yes, the RR bosses preferred to let the Chinese handle the explosives. And lets not forget the transcontinental RR was not built until AFTER the War of Northern Aggression.

You'd be supprised at just how many Blacks fought on the Southern side during the WoNA(War of Northern Aggression). The History Ch. did a piece on it a while back. Remember, it was their homes that the North were burning and destorying too and alot of them didn't like it one bit.
