Quote for the times
“The common soldiers of the Confederacy, aggregating something less than a million, were a relatively homogeneous group. The majority of them were native Southerners, rural, Protestant and unmarried. Less than one-fourth of them possessed slaves or belonged to slave-owning families. In age they ranged from the early teens to the seventies, but four fifths of them were between eighteen and thirty.” – From page 77 of ‘Embattled Confederates,’ written by Bill Irvin Wiley.
"Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should
not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all
experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while
evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms
to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to
reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their
duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their
future security." -

Adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776
(To the Founders, 'state' meant independent sovereign nation state,
that was voluntarily entering into the union and could theoretically un-volunteer later.)

Only we need to apply it to Amerika's reds.
