It is a very good conversation but isn't this thread about States Rights making a come back? For example in South Carolina today not 150 years ago, Obama wanted to bailout states. There is specific mandates in the money clause that if you take the money you must abide by a mandate to change states l...

This is exactly what kind of things occered prior to the civil war. At what point does a state lose itself to the federal state? I wonder how the military will fall into this? Will it abide by a government deemed tyrannical or will it side with their own people? Who represents the people in this age...

From life in prison to the swamps of carolina. first hand accounts byt the people who actually was there. Here in the US you can read the material in the ...

Wow, some really incredible answers! The main interest for me being an American is that it personally effected our family, our land, our own morality. This was a fight of subjective opinion on both sides. I heard an interesting radio program the other day on Lincoln. He was basically a bigot reforme...

It is the right nay the obligation of every citizen to stand up to a government and say enough your done. It is our duty as Americans to rise and remove a government that is tyrannical in nature as well as in fact. I am a firm believer in states rights without the Feds intervening. Who knows their o...

America was far from perfect then as is farther from perfect today. Life then was simpler but harder day to day. Life today is harder and day to day is more difficult because of beauracracy. Does that make sense?

Europeans fascination with the American Civil War

I have always been curious as to the steadfast interest of Europeans in the Great American Tragedy? I really have never posed this type of question but I am curious none the less. Besides the Military Historical context why?

Thanks for any answers, as I have a curious mind

The point I was getting at is this....don't change something for the sake of a wiki comment...I would suggest email the area concerned like the Sons of Confederate Veterens in that area.

The first steamboat to pass over the Muscle Shoals and reach Knoxville was the Atlas in 1828. By 1835 steamboats traveled regularly from Knoxville, Tennessee to Decatur, Alabama when water was high. In 1836 a canal was built around the Muscle Shoals by the State of Alabama with Federal aid. The cana...
