The Confederacy has been and always will be in denial!

It makes for good, but sad reading - the slow but steady decent to war. What would have happened if war had been stopped :?:

If the Civil War had never occurred it is unlikely that a National consciousness would have developed and the "State" would have been the focal point of one's loyalty. Remember Lee went with the South because he was loyal to his state. After the Civil War, this type of thinking was replaced with a loyalty for the Country as a whole. Slavery would have disappeared, I think, eventually but the racial attitudes would have persisted more strongly. It is also possible that a civil war would have occurred later anyway.

Very important supplies for the Confederates.

So Winfield Scott had a son who was colonel in the regular army? I wonder what happened to him. I'm sure he must have risen to general in the war.

You raised an interesting question....I did some searching and found this in google book entitles "Civil War high commands By John H. Eicher, David J. Eicher"

http://books.google.com/books?id=Fs0Ajl ... &q&f=false

Henry Lee Scott (son-in-law to Winfield Scott? his daughter married into the same surname?) He was a Colonel in April 1861. "Alleged to have leaked Union war plans to the CSA" !!!!! The whole thing sounds really interesting.

[edit} as a side note - Winfield Scott had (3) sons, 2 died as children. The other was a son from his first marriage...but there appears to be little information on him and does not look like he was in the military. He had several daughters.

I have to question that. I found a site at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cg ... id=8055495 that has a photo of his impressive tombstone in Baltimore, Md. He lived from 1814 - 1886 and was his father-in-law's aide in both the Mexican-American and Civil Wars. When Winfield retired, Henry was made Colonel and Inspector General but served less than a year before retiring after 29 years of service. He was brevetted a brigadier in 1865 for "long and faithful service" but declined the honor. Not something done for someone who leaked secrets to the enemy. However, where there is smoke there might be fire.

Nicodemus never did mention service in the New Mexico Territory; interesting.

From the description the picture may not do her justice - sounds like she would fit in well with the Hollywood set today :shock:

She died before she was forty and the phtographs were taken in 1851 when she would be about thirty! So she had some miles on her and it showed.

Continued good reading. The causes of succession (and the WAR) seems very clear in the Texas resolution.
