Re: “Leonard Pitts Blasts the Neo-Confederates

It amazes me that these self proclaimed historians still support that 150 year old LIE that says THE UNION ARMY FOUGHT TO ABOLISH SLAVERY and the CONFEDERATE ARMY FOUGHT TO DEFEND IT. There is a very simply truth that you are ignoring here. The horrible institution of SLAVERY was created, supported, maintained and defended by the Constitution and laws of the United States of America. If the Union Army had really fought to abolish slavery, they would all have been guilty of treason. You cannot change the laws of the United States of America by military force, which brings to point the second part of that LIE. There were 34 States when Lincoln was elected, 14 so called slave states and 2 northern states where slavery still existed. In order to abolish slavery, there had to be a Constitutional Amendment requiring 26 states to ratify it. If the Confederate States had not seceded, that could not happen. No where in history can you find people fighting battles over issues that they have already won. You can dress this up any way you want to but the truth is that the Confederate States wanted freedom much more than slavery. Quit trying to make this a SOUTHERN THING. You are just another one trying to fix the blame instead of the problem. Lincoln created that LIE to justify the needless deaths of two thirds of a million Americans.
