Historical Resources Regarding the Confederate States of America

"Regardless of the causes or specifics of why or how the 'Civil War' happened- one thing is sure.  What the war ultimately decided was that the Federal Government is now the only entity that decides the limits of it's own powers.  Our only hope now is that bureaucratic inefficiency will delay the slide towards an absolutist central authority until the American people somehow decide to reclaim their lost spirit of liberty, individuality and self-government.  What it might take for them to awaken and work towards that goal is still a mystery." - Micha Petty, 2007
