    How do confederate bible thumpers make peace with the fact that God was clearly on the side of the Union in the Civil War?

    denial? avoidance? straight up ignorance?

    New England shipping companies did that. That's why they called them "Yankee slave traders".

    If the South had God on the side of their 'righteous' cause they wouldn't have been so soundly defeated.

    Obviously God's blessing went to the Union, if you believe in that sort of thing.
