Re: “Charleston planning $90,000 Civil War Sesquicentennial schedule

For those of you that think slavery was not a issue in leading to secession, you are not worth debating. To those of you that think that slavery was the reason for the war of Northern Aggression, you also are not worth debating.

Lincoln was for it before he was against it. His wife and her family owned slaves. He very adamantly stated before the election of 60 that he would not work to abolish slavery.

Of all the states in the Confederacy South Carolina probably had the largest at stake over the slavery issue, and it was a BIG topic running up to the war. And it was one of the concerns that lead to secession. There were many other issues. The most spoken is States Rights. In SC the right to own slaves was considered a state decision not a federal on.

Also remember that when the secession movement started when the USA was less that 50 years old. There were many many people alive that remembered our secession from England. The revolutionary spirit was still around and being passed on first hand to children and grandchildren. Many people all over the country both north and south felt that the Federal government had evolved into another tyrannical system like England. Every state had its own reasons for secession. If you want to learn more about it then take the HOURS to read the secession debates from the different states.

Both sides have distorted History. I will end by saying I agree 100% with R.E.Lee on why the south lost. "It simply was not God's will"
With respect,
