The War Between the States was also known as the War of Northern Aggression and The War for Southern Independence. It was known by yankees as the War of the Rebellion and the Civil War. I've been interested in the War Between the States since I was a boy. There were some very courageous men, on both sides, fighting for what they believed in. What was the war about? Study the facts for yourself, and base your opinion about the war on the facts, not someone else's opinion. Ponder this, what if Abraham Lincoln had abandoned Sumter (he was advised to do that), would the war have been averted and the Union reunited peacefully?Here are a couple of essays that I have written:
