We used gunboats in our fight as well.

Culture

Our culture is divided. Us southerners aren't really with the hustle and bustle of the north. Because our economy is based on agriculture, we aren't as industrialized as the south. We need the slaves on plantations to help with the work because it is really cheap labor. The north may be part of the former United States but they are not a part of our confederacy.

Religion

We are mainly Christian, Baptists, Evangelists, Protestant, etc.

December 20, 1860 -- Yes!!! Couldn't take it anymore. We just got fed up with Lincoln and all his shenanigans! It was just the last straw when Lincoln was elected. We wanted our slavery rights to be protected...we need slavery for our economy. Lincoln's election threatened all of that. We had big plans, we could've been going somewhere, but nope. We believe in more power going to the state government rather than the federal government. So yeah, so South Carolina seceded, paving the way for the rest of us. I think it will be a victory for us in the end, afterall, we've got Lee on our side. What a guy.

April 1861 -- War has broken out! We declared war on the United States of America.. they call themselves the Union. It was the battle of Fort Sumter. We tried to get the other side to surrender because we might as well hit em hard early. Lincoln tried to recapture the fort and get more troops for the Union but that just only made more states secede.

-- Things have been going pretty well for the war. That Robert E. Lee is on a roll... he's got victories at the Seven Days Battles, theSecond Battle of Bull Run, the Battle of Fredericksburg and the Battle of Chancellorsville! But the victories didn't last long.. it was a sad sad day when Lee had to surrender to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox on April 9, 1865.

-Come on now, let's not get too excited. There's no reason to overreact about all this. It is illegal to break away from our nation, and you have committed a crime by seceding from the Union. It is blasphemous, and we will not stand for it. We are going to take you back by force if you don't rejoin us. How could you even consider seceding? We created this glorious nation on unity and solidarity. Hence, the United States of America. We can't be united if ya'll just leave us like that. We need to remain together because if we are separate, we will become weak and other nations will initiate war with us. Remember, "United We Stand, Divided We Fall." Don't you realize that as one nation, we are prosperous? Just because our economies differ doesn't mean that we can't stay united. Our economies and business styles complement each other. We feed off of each other, and we need to remain together to maintain this economic prosperity. If you start to rely on other nations for finished goods, you'll have to pay higher taxes, and your farmers will suffer. Don't be foolish. Seriously, we didn't break away from the British just to split up again. Remember the solidarity that we had when we fought against the Red Coats! Rejoin us, and together, we can once again be the United States of America.- American Revolutionaries
