“Both Lincoln and the Confederacy Were Awful”

An article here, not a long one, but one worth your time.

Watch out for sacred cows, all of you, as you tread the passages.

I find in it a validation of my own view, long formed, of what the War of Northern Aggression Between the States was fought over. When asked if I think the casus belli was slavery or the rights of the States, I invariably reply, “Yes.”

Some are baffled; others understand.

VMIJPP hails from the star city of the south, Roanoke, Virginia. A 1989 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, he is a retired artillery officer in the United States Marine Corps, with time in both the active and reserve sides. He served in Iraq in 2004, and in Afghanistan in 2009-2010. He joined the magnificent OPFOR.com as a guest blogger from the now defunct but never uninteresting Rule 308, where he denounced gun control and other aspects of tyranny, and proclaimed the greatness of the United States. When the sun set on OPFOR.com, he migrated here with Keydet1976 and the others.
