40 percent of its population was in bondage while the rest of the population prospered off their labor.
Sounds like the modern democrat welfare state, where a portion lives off the taxation of others.

They should have been stripped of all property & forced to work for their Union Overloads. They shouldn't have been allowed to return to their property & build Confederate Statues.

Look what they did to Lee's home. They took his home and land and turned it into Arlington Cemetery.

The South will rise again.

And the next time, Maryland will stay on the RIGHT side.

You don’t know Maryland
All of those government jobs! Maryland and Northern Virginia are par and parcel with D.C. like Capital City in the Hunger Games. Out of touch with reality and will destroy fly over areas if the rabble act up.

The Confederacy was one of the most inhuman and despicable governments ever formed.
:laughing0301:

Yes, it was based on white supremacy, but the most inhuman and despicable ever formed?

You have no education, do you?

Robert E. Lee surrenders

In Appomattox Court House, Virginia, Robert E. Lee surrenders his 28,000 Confederate troops to Union General Ulysses S. Grant, effectively ending the American Civil War. Forced to abandon the Confederate capital of Richmond, blocked from joining the surviving Confederate force in North Carolina, and harassed constantly by Union cavalry, Lee had no other option.

In retreating from the Union army’s Appomattox Campaign, the Army of Northern Virginia had stumbled through the Virginia countryside stripped of food and supplies. At one point, Union cavalry forces under General Philip Sheridan had actually outrun Lee’s army, blocking their retreat and taking 6,000 prisoners at Sayler’s Creek. Desertions were mounting daily, and by April 8 the Confederates were surrounded with no possibility of escape. On April 9, Lee sent a message to Grant announcing his willingness to surrender. The two generals met in the parlor of the Wilmer McLean home at one o’clock in the afternoon.

They're apparently gearing up for another ass-kicking too.

The South is (ironically since a Texan said it) a testament to Ron White's catch phrase...."you can't fix stupid".

Just like the end of WW1 then?

How'd that one work out?

The State of Maryland is not big enough to destroy much of anything; except Baltimore, of course, many years destroyed now.

The key to ending abortion is preventing pregnancies for those who don't want to become pregnant. Luckily those not wanting to conceive are a growing population
