April is designated Confederate History Month in Alabama by the state Board of Education and governor.

The large opposition by the Northern people to Lincoln’s Tax War was a tremendous asset to the Confederate States. Nearly half (45 percent) of all Northerners supported a voluntary union for the United States, as established by the Founding Fathers, and opposed President Lincoln’s new compulsory union to collect a 40 percent federal sales tax from Americans for Lincoln’s Wall Street partners.

These Northern Confederates almost defeated Lincoln’s re-election in 1864 with their political platform to end the war immediately and sign a peace treaty with the Confederate states.

Their presidential candidate, George McClellan, received 45 percent of the Northern vote and, if Southern votes were allowed, Lincoln would have been handily defeated.

Whereupon today, the Confederate States and United States would be voluntary unions of sovereign, independent states instead of a compulsory union of colonies of the federal government.
