My 2 Cents

Welcome to "My 2 Cents". These pages are the consequence of decades of serious study and reflection upon the issues surrounding the War Between the States. The men and women involved in that bloody struggle knew precisely why they were fighting; and it wasn’t in order to preserve slavery. Rather it was because their homes were being invaded as a result of their having exercised their legal and constitutional right to govern themselves; which, incidentally, is a pillar of the Declaration of Independence. The following pages reflect that focus both by the owners of this site and fellow contributors who desire to offer their 2 cents to the discussion.
