It is amazing that there is a concept that this board has been "Highjacked by Southerners". When at times I have quit posting, because I felt that the Board had been "Highjacked by Unionist" who did not argue any sort of Historical or phylosophical stance other that the Union was right, and they won the War, and that settled the diplomatic problems that were the cause of the war in the first place. That it was as simple as that, and that we as southerners should qoute "just get over it".
But I am just a dumb hick southerner who is not supposed to have a different opinion I guess. What do I know?
But in defence of the southern view point and application in the modern day world, I will quote the noted Reverend Wright of Chicago. "The Chickens are coming home to roost!"
