Ok but that last flag is so ugly. Nothing is the same proportion as anything else and the red stripe looks like it wants to be the center of attention, but it clearly isn't because the battle flag is far more interesting. You would expect them to put them on the same side, but instead there's that massive white block that just looks like they ran out of time to draw a flag and submitted it unfinished.

@RalOrtTal "Like most wars, the Civil War was a war fought over power and money". This is sort of true but that is because the money *came from slavery* which they feared lincoln would abolish "The South felt the only way it could change this unfair arrangement would be to legally secede and form its own country". I dont know about you but it doesnt sound legal to start a war to gain independance The last part is too long to quote but yes that is true, however irrelevant. Nobody claims lincoln fought the war to abolish slavery, he fought it to preserve the union. However, the south seceded because it wanted to keep the instutution of slavery alive. The southeren leaders even wrote this in their letters of secession. If the southeren states seceded because of taxes and political representation there is no reason for the word slavery to ever even come up in their letters.

@Thunderbird_102 Like most wars, the Civil War was a war fought over power and money. The South, a political minority from 1830 on, was fed up with being pushed around by the North. The unfair 40 percent tariff on cotton was paid by the five Deep South cotton states which financed 80 percent of the U.S. Treasury. These monies were used mostly to subsidize the industrial development of the North. The South felt the only way it could change this unfair arrangement would be to legally secede and form its own country. President Abraham Lincoln, a former Northern railroad lawyer, said no. The North could not survive without the cotton tariff and he would do all he could to preserve the Union. He even encouraged the passage of an amendment to the Constitution (the Corwin Amendment) that would make slavery irrevocable until the 20th century in order to entice the Confederate States to re-enter the Union. This was passed by Congress in March 1861, signed by Lincoln and sent to the states for ratification. Lincoln himself stated in a letter in August 1862 to New York editor Horace Greely, “My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and it is not either to save or destroy slavery.”

@Dman Bellic Maybe you didn't read this correctly Things the Confederacy tried to do: Become independent, *keep slavery* , win a war, *keep people enslaved* , and oh yeah, *keep slavery* Lee didn't run the country, and the people who did supported slavery. Neither did Lee try to do anything to stop it, in fact fighting for government trying to preserve it. States rights existed before the CSA, and the most they "contributed" was whining that *freeing slaves* was violating states rights, just like segregationists in the 60s. Getting offended that the CSA tried to preserve slavery is either a troll-take or the opposite of "doing research." Vomiting Lost Cause propaganda doesn't change that.

Actually the north had 5 slave states It was only because of Lincoln they were abolished. I understand you were attempting to meme but it’s odd nobody ever listens to the military generals like Lee. They were against slavery. Lee was Pro-Abolitionist and supported the idea. At the end of the day, like with all wars it was the old and bitter that tricked the young and dumb into killing each other.

@tester123532456 He turned Germany's economy around by using slave labour. Also I'm sure the fact that the rest of the world dealt with the great depression helped. They blacklisted scientists like einstein (and fermi in italy) so I'm not sure what you mean by "encouraging intelligence." There was only less crime and degeneracy because the punishments were inhumane and the Gestapo and ss were around violating people's rights. Don't take your rights for granted. Don't take your liberty for granted. Our ancestors gave their lives for freedom. It was a society with no freedom of speech or of the press. Workers lived in serfdom under a tyrannical regime willing to pit friend against friend and commit genocide. Also if the germans were so great, how did they lose?

A lot of people get their panties in a wad over this flag but forget the fact that a lot of people on both sides of the Civil War died, and a lot of black folk eventually were set free from slavery. It doesn't matter who won or who lost if your end goal of that equation is your freedom today regardless of your skin color. None of you reading this comment right now were ever a slave in that era, nor ever owned one. Welcome to the present day. Your destiny is in your own hands.

It would be a pretty big waste of time for a teacher spending time going over all of the confederate flags from stars and bars to the blood-stained banner and explaining how the confederate flag wasn’t the actual flag despite the fact that the citizens of the confederacy used the battle flag anyway when you could just say that the confederate battle flag was the confederate flag. The military used it, the people used it, only the government didn’t. Nobody really needs to know this. It doesn’t change anything about the debate over flying the “Confederate Flag”, it’s just a bit of trivia because you don’t need to know that it’s technically unofficial despite the fact that everyone used it. If you ask the average person who flies the confederate flag what flag it is, they’ll probably either say the “Rebel Flag” or the “Confederate Flag”.
