Of course my only experience and knowledge was growing up in an area that until the late 20th century still suffered from the destruction of that war from northern sympathizers.  What was ironic is that there was very little slavery in that area. 

 

When I left home in 1955, the aftermath of that war was still evident.

 

I would think that your post was made in an attempt to start an argument based on regional bias and is completely without historical basis. 

 

Have a good afternoon.


Thanks for validating the premise that Mlseker posted...

 

The nation and world already knew, your validation is "the cherry on top".

Apparently you aren't a Civil War buff...  references to the different sides are to Confederates and Federal Armies.  But again you are concentrating on nuances in an attempt at dissension.


History refers to the Northern forces as Federals because the country wasn't united at that point, therefore no United States.<<< you need to back that up tx. The reason they call them the federals is beacuse IT ALWAYS WAS THE UNITED STATES, AND IT GETS CONFUSING TO CALL THEM THE US. Even the confederate were still US citizens, just in rebellion. you are claiming there was no United States of America during the civil war. WHat side were the federals fighting for? more simply Tx, you are saying the side that was defeated for their treason did suceed in breaking up the US. I beg to differ. The Rebels TRIED to avoid anti slavery laws and the reach of the Constitution of the United States, but were defeated in their attempt to do so. The only mistake the United States made was disbanding Federal Districts in the treasonous Confederate states.

 

You are no civil war buff, you are a victim of confederate propaganda.

So it begins.

Like yours that goes way out in claims?  What you just posted goes along with the links that was posted about the Civil War period.  The rest is just superfluous to the topic.

 

Too much time on your hands?

Perhaps you should start backing up your posts with sourced material instead of just your innuendo.  That or like any reputable writer at least do your research before spreading falsehoods (a politically correct of saying lies).

 

The Texas Rangers as a law enforcement agency didn't participate in the Civil War.  However there was a unit in the Confederate Army by the name of Terry's Texas Rangers which wasn't affiliated with the law enforcement agency.  These were volunteers under the command of a Colonel Benjamin Terry.

 

There were those who resigned from the Texas Rangers who resigned and enlisted in the Confederate Army.  No doubt some even volunteered in the Federal Army since sympathy went both ways in the South.

 

And then there is the fable about the boy who cried wolf so many times that people ceased paying attention to what he had to say.  Wonder if this could be the case here, except for those with an axe to grind for some reason?

 

 


Nice complaint about using sources. Too bad it ends with a supposition about former rangers joining the United States army. Got proof for that?


Thus far there's no proof - only unverifiable anecdodes.

 

However there's proof that the first Texans during the early 1800s under Stephen Austin were required to be Mexican Citizens who had adopted the Roman Catholic Faith, and had learned to speak Spanish.

 

The first "rangers"(1823) - in Stephen Austin's words, "ten men...to act as rangers for the common defense" - were still required to be Mexican Citizens who had adopted the Catholic Faith and learned to speak Spanish.

Of course not living in Texas, you are not aware that there is the Alamo and then again San Antonio.  San Antonio as a city is a liberal enclave.  As a city, San Antonio isn't that great a place to live, but not bad to visit.
