39. What a load of hooey

This is, to put it as delicately and diplomatically as I can, a bunch of neo-Confederate bullshit.

THE SOUTH FIRED FIRST. Lincoln was more than willing to negotiate in 1861. He did everything he could to hold the Union together (which was his JOB as president) without violence.

But THE SOUTH FIRED FIRST. The Southern states were hell-bent on secession, and hell-bent on preserving and EXTENDING the slave-based economy and racist supremacy.

If you think there is ANY chance that the Southern leaders would have given up slavery voluntarily, you are completely delusional.
