      'There was no right to secede, there was no "country"'

      Wow what an amazingly ignorant statement. The right to secede was one of the primary tenants of the revolution, and the 'country' was the individual states that people were in, north and south, until the consolidation by war of the union.

      Really, is there anything new?   We have heard this same story/claim, over, and over, and over again.  There was no right to secede, there was no "country" to be invaded by "foreigners" .  The only "foreigners" in the south, were those serving in both North and Southern armies.

      As i said 'restoring the union'.
      If you look intthe states had a right to secede, the Union refused to accept this, however you look at it its Union soldiers used to repress southern rights to govern.
      To restore a union with a country which does not want that union, is in fact an invasion by a foreigner. Whether the Union wanted to paint it that way or not.
