22. I'm from the South, and let me give you some perspective

Number one, many here don't call it the "Civil War". They call it the "War between the States", or the "War of Northern Agression."

They despise Lincoln because they figure that this marks the beginning point of Federal supremacy over States' rights. Everything went downhill from there.

Oh, and the whole freeing the slaves thing. Of course nobody mentions it out loud, but I get the distinct impression sometimes that a lot of folks down there would have been happy to just roll along with things as they were.
