"The fact that numerically they were conquered and forced into submission is where the fight will never end. I know "The Cause" is not the term we are looking for. For that will always point to the institution of slavery. But the determination to stand and fight what was seen as wrong is to be admired and upheld as right and just."
So I ask: if the South was conquered "numerically", why did they not simply arm their slaves as soldiers to achieve their independence?
And I also ask: If something is seen as wrong, and men are determined to stand up fight against that wrong, why do you not "admire and uphold" those men who did just that, as being "right and just"?
