Must be my fault I posted all of the secession documents this morning starting with Virginia. None mention ed slavery, all were cut from the page including my question to CNN as to why their reporting and what they allowed on their forum was biased. This is the last post -- "People need to remember, a lotta rich Southerners lost everything in the Civil War.
They weren't breaking the law. It must have been very humiliating for them to surrender
the family fortune to the federal government.
All that remains of their legacy is a memory. Of course they want to paint a pretty picture of history. Pride is not as easily taken as property.
However, its worth noting that at least half of all Southerners equate Confederates with Nazis........."
They even took the time to remove my response which was very civil and factual considering what was posted. Think I'll write up a little something for the SHAPE website about CNN's biased opinions.
