♦Mod on Genealogy and Family History.SE

I love Jesus, classical music, history, and Italian food, in that order. I also enjoy studying math.

I've been playing music for about five years now and I am proficient on the cornet and the recorder. I also play a little piano on the side.

comment Why wasn't the American civil war fought between slaves and masters?
Just read the Declaration of Independence (esp. the indictment) if you want a clearer picture. Really. It's a lot more specific than "wanting self-determination".

@jwenting I suggest you read the US Declaration of Independence. There were many more reasons for independence from Britain besides taxation without representation (26 to exact). Taxation without representation as a cause for independence is blown way out of proportion just like slavery was blown way out of proportion as a cause for the Civil War. Taxation without representation was only number 13 on the list (IIRC).

@LennartRegebro It's a valid question. Stop picking at bones, looking for something to be offended at. If you don't like the exact wording of the question, edit it.
