That Virginia Thing

On many blogs today is the news about Virginia governor Bob McDonnell declaring “Confederate History Month” in the state. Fabius Maximus has an excellent set of links about the issue, including a set on state’s rights vs. slavery.

I wrote about it a while ago, but there is no difference. The continuation of slavery was the core issue in regards to state’s rights, and the war was either going to end in a Confederate Victory or the end of slavery. Saying otherwise is a very superficial view of the Civil War
