    By the way, there was a 3rd Confederate flag too. This one was like the all white with the battle flag in the canton flag, the so-called “stainless banner,” but it had a vertical red stripe on the end away from the flag pole. The reasoning was that the stainless banner looked too much like the white flag of surrender

    The South’s secession definitely WAS for slavery and not states’ rights. Here’s the proof. The Confederate Constitution was almost a plagiarism of the US Constitution, with some changes. The US Constitution states that there are two things that can never be amended: no state can lose its equal representation in the Senate, and the federal government cannot interfere with the slave trade until 1808. Obviously the latter was moot by 1861. One thing that the Confederate Constitution states can never be amended is that no state may ever abolish Negro slavery. In other words, when you compare slavery and states’ rights then slavery wins. True states’ rights would allow a state to abolish slavery.

    If the South planted baker’s yeast with their wheat crop,
    the South just might rise again.
