I feel that most people must begin to understand that the Civil War was not
based on slavery.  Yes, slavery was an issue, but the deep down real reason
for the Civil War was the fact the states felt that the federal government
does not have complete control over the states.  In other words the Confe
derate States of America believed in state's rights.  This is apparent in
the name of the new nation, the "states" joined a confederation.  That is
what the Civil War was about and if the South would have won it would not
be known as the war over slaves.  Which brings up another point concerning
the flying of the Confederate flag over southern buildings it symbolizes
Now the idea of why the discrimination of blacks is asked after the Civil
War era.  The answer is simple, Southerners were mad and the blacks were the
only group that they were capable of controlling.
