Notwithstanding that you make absolutely no point with that statement, Would you regale us with exactly how Trump has well handled the government response to this epidemic? Please be as specific as possible. As it stands now it seems that Larry is correct in his assessment.

Please explain to me the difference between the "Secessionists" of 1860 & those of 1776. The first ones are normally called Heros & the later one's Rebels & Treasonists, Both were doing the same thing, leaving an existing government & starting a new Independent country.
Currently Camp Commander of B F Cheatem Camp 72, TN Division, Starnes Brigade Sons of Confederate Veterans. One of my Great Grandfathers served in the 45th Infantry CSA & another in the Starnes/ McLemore 4th TN Volunteer Cavalry.
I Apologise to NO ONE for their service.

Allow me to disabuse you of your confusion on this. The Continental Congress banded together, raised an Army and a Navy, owned the moral high ground, persisted, secured powerful allies and won the war.

The Confederates attempted to split the nation, lost the moral high ground over slavery, failed to secure strong allies, whoafully underestimated their adversary and lost the war.

The only reason why they were not put to the sword was by the graciousness and generosity of their Northern betters.

However, I for one believe a conquered people should be reminded that they are conquered...Frequently and endlessly. Even 155 years after the fact if the conquered forget.

Treason has consequences.

OP mentioned the war of northern aggression. As Birmingham was also mentioned I assumed he meant Birmingham, England. Maybe it was Alabama?

If King shows up and starts babbling about hockey...

"The War of Northern Aggression" was for years called the "War of Southern Independence," later officially known in the South as "The War Between the States" (TWBTS). The yankee version of this "Civil War"....which it was not since it was between two distinct nations...seems to be taking over. But there is a language in War:
Yankee name . . . . . . . . .Freedom fighter name
. ."Bull Run". . . . . . . . . . . . . . . "Manassas"
. ."Pittsburg Landing". . . . . . . . . "Shiloh
. ."Antitiem". . . . . . . . . . . . . . . "Sharpsburg"
. ."Stone's River". . . . . . . . . . . "Murfreesboro"
. ."Beaver Dam Creek" . . . . . . "Mechanicsville"
. ."Chaplin Hills". . . . . . . . . . . ."Perryville"
. ."Fair Oaks". . . . . . . . . . . . . . "Seven Pines"

As for the Scot-English invasions and counter-invasions. A lot of the American South was settled by Scots or Scot-Irish. And a lot came over in 1620's and after 1745 as the Scottish lands were taken over by barons. Because of Slavery and after the WBTS the poverty of the area, the White population remained pretty much as it was in 1780...it was mostly Scottish or English. And though huge changes have taken place since the introduction of air conditioning and the opening of the region in the 1960's...it's still pretty much the norm. The best book written about the South of pre-1965 is still "The Mind of the South." A historical capsule of what the region we grew up in was.

You can try to inject courtesy, courtliness, politeness, restraint, gentlemanliness, manners and maturity into a Yank. It's of course difficult...not impossible...just unlikely.
