@JohnAskew:The parties switched over in the last 100 years or so. 

The folks who fought for seccession (and slavery) are the same folks who populate the sourthern republicans.  They just have a different team name and jersey color.

 

I don't normally get into political discussions but I felt I had to correct this one.  It is actually the Republican party that fought for civil rights and to end slavery.
