This list is gleaned from many Civil War related threads. It's in no particular sequence. Tried hard to keep answers short, so sources, links and quotes are available as needed...

You’re a brave man. The replies should be interesting. I’ve always thought the Secession declarations were pretty damning.

I am not interested in re-fighting the first American Civil War.
I am not interested in discussing the slavery of black Americans.

I will say this: States Rights are an important concept. Somewhere along the line, the federal government decided that it was everybody's boss, and that is a shame.

I can’t see that this is the entire story. It doesn’t fit with all the things that were going on at the time and this is a bad rap on the South.

Whatever the reasons, there is no doubt that the formation of the Confederacy was once the greatest domestic threat to the well being of the United States. Today the greatest threat is the Democratic Party.

Talk about being PC, the South wouldn’t allow the presence of abolitionist literature, c.f. the trial of Reuben Crandall, M.D. in the District of Columbia.

we will try to get it right this time....

....actually I look toward the Declaration of Independence(no, you are right, it is not a current legal document) to determine the best way to protect the most important aspects of the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights.

no statement on secession is necessary in the constitution, if you have reached the point to reissue the Declaration of Independence.

MOLON LABE!!

Someone please show me the official documents or discussions concerning doing away with slavery that caused the south to succeed. The south did not just leave the union because of slavery.

... and this is a bad rap on the South.

While we're used to getting a "bad rap" in the South, it really is quite old and tiresome.

You wouldn't know it by the "ignorant southerner" stereotypes hurled at us, but slavery was abolished close to 150 years ago, and--news flash to the slavery-obsessed!!--black people are actually free in the South, and they're treated quite well here.

More divide and conquer. People need to learn history. Seriously.
