  • I think it would have depended on where you lived in that time period.

  • lol, over 700 women fought as men during the Civil War for both sides. There were also tons of women spies.
    I'm a die hard Confederate. I believe 100% in States Rights. The Civil War didn't start out as a fight for/against slavery it was about oppression. The North had more seats in Congress and was taxing the South to death.
    I have re-enacted for 8 years now as a Confederate and 2 years as a Yankee. =)

  • North although they were full of shit they didn't do it for principal they just used it as an excuse, but of course I would have to support the morally correct team.

  • The south because the reality of it is the Civil war wasn't about slavery although that's how everyone wants to believe it happened.

  • The Civil War was as much about states' rights as it was about slavery. So....though I despise slavery, I would have supported the South. Texas' constitution still has a clause that allows it to secede from the Union if certain conditions apply.
