We all lost that war. It was the beginning of the end of government “for the people, by the people and of the people”.
Oh, and the Revolution was ours too. Unless you’re going to tell my ancestors that fought in it that they were fighting for the North.
OK, so had the South won would the slogan be "government of 2/3rds of the people, by 2/3rds of the people, for 2/3rds of the people?" You want to claim that your rebellion was for freedom and liberty? Fine, but don't forget to mention that your rebellion was launched in no small part to keep a considerable part of your population from enjoying that very same freedom and liberty that you claim to have been fighting for.
