    public relations campaign to re-frame the war as having been over "States Rights" began almost immediately after Lee's surrender at Appomattox Court House.

    I've been living here in VA for 22 years now and most conservative Southerners I've met haven't ever even read the declarations of Secession that were issued by Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina and Texas, which clearly demonstrate that the root cause of the war was in fact, slavery.
