Civil War or War of Northern Aggression
About North Georgia

Let me form this into a question....since that's what you seem to want for your feedback. "Why do you insist on calling the Civil War the, quote...War of Northern Aggression..unquote?

It seems to me the first shots were fired by Southern folk...a well known fact. Your attitude in after aldl these years still defending a lost, and thank God it is lost, cause is indicative of the mentaldity of the South in dragging the country into the bloodiest war of it's history for the benifit odf a group of wealth, slaveowning traitors.

The country, in general, has gone along with a sort of wispy view of the South's motives, allowing texts for children to call it such things as "The War Between The States," and other eupherisms to placate the naturally bruised feelings of loosers who are still in our midst.....I have lived in the South since my sixth birthday, and am presently 58 years old, and I love it here and wouldn't want to live anywere else....but there is an element in the South that I am ashamed of, such as the Klan and beer drinking Red Neck so-called reenactors....that is repelent.

I consider your web site reference to The War of Northern Agression to be foolish stuff. Bottom line it was a bloody insurection by staid leaders who couldn't adapt to changes in a democratic fourm and resorted to blookshed.

I love history (that's why I'm at your web page) and appreciate the ins and outs of the events of the past.....but....come on....just call it the civil war.....which it was.....and remember that not all Southerners agreed with the war either....read Mark Twain and why he deserted and just went west.. If you want to call it something besides the Civil Wat, how about The Insurrgency of The Traitors? No one needs that tittle either....but fluffing your bias in history really isn't kosher.

History is not a lost cause, but maligning it is.

I will limit my personal comments to the question asked--The War of Northern Aggression, The War for Southern Independence and many others were contemporary Southern names for what the North called The Civil War. We generally refer to Civil War battles by The South's name with The Northern name in parenthesis. We also tend towards The South's name for the War rather than The North's. If you want to read texts that use Northern names, maybe find a site called Welcome to North Ohio.
