A term used by yankees to describe those folk who made every legal effort to exercise their Constitutional rights. King George III called our founders Rebels. What our founders did in 1776 and our Southern ancestors did in 1861 do not fit any of the three classic definitions of revolution. What they did was exercise their right of secession. The South followed the Constitution and Orders of Secession while the Lincoln administration ignored the Constitution, even issuing an arrest warrant for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court who had the nerve to say that what they were about was unconstitutional.

   If you believe in the Sovereign God, uphold the Ten Commandments, believe that the U.S. Constitution means what it says, believe in virtue and personal responsibility, work hard, pay your taxes, follow the rules and wish to be left alone; then you are a Rebel.
