Sorry, FRiend, but the "revisionists" are all those who taught you whatever it is you think you know about the Civil War.
There is at least as much evidence to support the thesis that the Civil War was a states’ rights issue as there is to prop up this PC notion that it was all about slavery. Will the coming war be about guns? Abortion? Homosexuality? No, it will be about an out-of-control federal government ignoring the will of the people and the rights of states to make their own decisions on those matters. Just like Civil War I was about the rights of states to chart their own economic courses and to leave a Union they no longer found beneficial.
