That sounds so much like the Declaration of Independence it isn't even funny.

I'm pretty sure bigots were well-represented in Congress.

There was bigotry on both sides North and South. Racism is not just a Southern issue. Freeing the African slave was not the North's reason for waging war against defenseless women and children in the South!

“If I thought this war would free the ***** I would put my sword in its scabbard and go home.” General Ulysses Grant

lol doesn't that quote from Grant kind of prove my point? So if he knew the slaves were going to be freed he would have went home. Yep, doesn't seem to be an issue.

It is very similar! You would have to read a little history to see the similarities.The British were offering freedom to slaves who would revolt. Gen. Washington did not like that idea at all. Read the Halifax Resolves!

The Northern warmongers were inciting slaves to rise up and kill their masters in their sleep

They would have been freed without the war of Northern aggression. Lincoln's war proved powerful people can circumvent the constitution and fundamentally change America and cause generations of hatred and distrust.

As the confederate flag is the military standard of a traitorous, treasonous army against the United States, people who fly it should be arrested and executed for treason. It would be like flying an Al-Quaeda flag.

So much for the first Amendment.
