Even if this was all true, it doesn't change the fact that the South did have slaves and they refused to give them up without a fight.

They just wanted to care for and protect them so much they couldn't bare to let the Northern Slavelords get them.

It is all "true" but the way it is presented ignores some glaringly obvious "truths" that would better align this perception of historical reality with actual reality.

and if the southern states were sovereign, and the war was to preserve states' rights, then the claim that it was unnecessary to fight a war to end slavery is bullshit, because the southern states could have simply outlawed it legislatively. But they didn't, of course. So they seceded peacefully by shelling Ft. Sumter.

The Southern states WERE sovereign; there's nothing in the Constitution that says it you can't back out when you feel like it. You know, like how all laws work.

Those damn northern limousine Yankees.

You can't just "change your mind" about slavery stupid Northerners. No-taksie-backsies!

Jamestown, VA was buying African slaves as early as 1619, a year before the Pilgrims even arrived. I know, it's hard to believe a Confederate apologist would lie about anything.

That would make for an excellent movie pitch. Time traveling slave ships owned by new york Jews, and the southern accented handsome deck-swab that knows that a great heart (full of Jesus) can beat a fancy-dan education any day. He saves the love of his life (the alcoholic white captain's white daughter), but can't stop the south from taking the blame for slavery.
Cause the Union.

Is this a thing? Is this the beginning of a new Let's Have Another Civil War campaign? Did the terrorists literally kill all of us with one act? Is Osama bin Laden the most powerful human that ever fucking lived or what? Did we all just accidentally miss that JESUS CHRIST flew a plane into the WTC or something, damning us from that moment on?

I am so mad at this.

This is where i suggest my "why the terrorists should win" tag.

Yes, taxes (and "Socialism"!) are the reason for EVERYTHING!

The north was always jealous of the south, with their string bowties and their human chattel. That's why we accused them of having artillery of mass destruction.

It is all true, as far as I can tell. Except maybe the part about all states allowing for slavery at the time of the signing of the declaration of independence. I seem to remember that slavery wasn't legal in RI at the time.

The biggest irony is that Rhode Island was the only colony founded by and for Baptists.

Anybody want to buy my Ken Burns documentary DVDs? They tell such a needlessly complicated story.
