    Sadly, the colonies did not secede from Britain. You, as all the rest of the neo-confederates out there, believe that what happened in 1861 is the same as 1776. Not the case. The southern states helped create the Union, but the colonies did not help create the British Empire. Therefore, the colonies did not secede from that which they did not make.

    Don’t worry…it is a common mistake Lost Causers make because they are…well…Lost Causers.

  2. Corey, thanks for stopping by. While we almost always disagree, I enjoy your comments and among those who oppose us, you are one of the very few who is willing to discuss things rationally. I respect that and thank you for it.

    This is one of those rare cases where I agree with you completely.

    I understand what you’re saying, but it’s not often that you make a point that lends support to the right of the southern states to secede. You said, “The southern states helped create the Union, but the colonies did not help create the British Empire.” I’m glad you brought that up, and it’s something I had not considered before. The southern states, having been a part of creating the Union, would have an even greater claim to the right to secede from that union than our ancestors had to claim their independence from the Crown.

    I suspect you don’t come to the same conclusion, but it’s an interesting point – thanks for bringing it up.
