North Carolina possums are better, they carry guns and have a lovely gray uniform.

Fire ants are great for pets.

yes indeed - heritage not hatred - they were our forefathers that founght fo their land not any damn slave - most of us couldnt afford one , they were the really rich in this country that still run this country , the rest of us just believe in the founding principles and want to keep our land ....what little we might have if any , 

oh , and those that had none just didnt want some carpet bagger taking what we might be able to have

Truth be told - many - if not most - of the southern population @ that time had never SEEN a slave, never mind ownership.
Most of the Confederate armies men were barefoot, because they couldn't afford shoes. (If you cant afford shoes - how do you buy / keep slaves?? )
...and, Maryland (considered a "Northern State) was going to seceed if Lincoln took away their slave trade...which made Lincoln re-write the emancipation proclamation a couple times to read: "THOSE STATES - DEEMED TO BE IN REBELLION", allowing Maryland to keep that trade alive.
For what it's worth...

You are correct about Maryland and the issue of slavery and the 13 amendment.

My Family is from Maryland and gray as you can be.

Maryland played that we're "Northern Southerners or Southern Northerners" a lot.
They still do.
