One, to honour the fallen here at Antietam Battlefield in Sept. 1862. That is the purpose of the illuminaries where there are some 23000+ sand candles are scattered on the battlefield. Go to the Antietam Battlefield site for the details. It is a sobering and spiritual event.....

Those failing to learn from history are destined to repeat its mistakes.....

Should the secessionists be tried for treason? Hmmm, interesting:

treason (def): 1.(Government, Politics & Diplomacy) violation or betrayal of the allegiance that a person owes his sovereign or his country, esp by attempting to overthrow the government; high treason.

I tried to publish on this forum a more lengthy comment on the 50 secession petitions, and imaginary impacts, but it disappeared from the Internet--and even from my Word files. Wow!
Maybe it was because I compared the petitioners to the colonists 0f 1776 who petitioned King George III for redress of grievances.
I'm sure you're that important. Enjoy your delusions of grandeur.

Good point, how did those battlefields come to be? That's right, treason.

Nobody said it was, idiot. Take a course in remedial reading and get back to this forum. Coming from Illinois, you are programmed to be stupid, but it works for the idiots in your state--idiots that vote for the politicians now serving in terms prison, such as Rod Blagojevich, and those soon to be, such as Jesse Jackson Jr.

Illinois: What a cesspool of putrid excrement!

And you should go back to being a slave for the Spaniards. Because they raped and looted as they came thru what is now call Mexico. So you were most likely an a left over anchor baby from rape of the Spaniards. That would make you eruo-trash.

On October 13, 1845, a large majority of voters in the republic approved both the American offer and the proposed constitution that specifically endorsed slavery and emigrants bringing slaves to Texas.[16] This constitution was later accepted by the US Congress, making Texas a US state on the same day annexation took effect, December 29, 1845 (therefore bypassing a territorial phase).[17] One of the motivations for annexation was the Texas government had incurred huge debts which the United States agreed to assume upon annexation. As part of the Compromise of 1850, in return for this assumption of debt ($10,000,000), Texas dropped claims to territory which included parts of present-day Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Wyoming.

>>>The annexation resolution has been the topic of some historical myths: One that remains is that the resolution granted Texas the explicit right to secede from the union. This is a right argued by some[who?] to be implicitly held by all states, although the Supreme Court of the United States of America ruled in Texas v. White in 1869 that no state has the right to unilaterally secede. The resolution did include two unique provisions: First, it said up to four additional states could be created from Texas' territory with the consent of the State of Texas (and that new states north of the Missouri Compromise Line would be free states). The resolution did not include any special exceptions to the provisions of the US Constitution regarding statehood. The right to create these possible new states was not "reserved" for Texas, as is sometimes stated.[18] Second, Texas did not have to surrender its public lands to the federal government. While Texas did cede all territory outside of its current area to the federal government in 1850, it did not cede any public lands within its current boundaries<<<<< .
Consequently, the lands in Texas owned by the federal government are those which were subsequently purchased by it. This also means the state government has control over oil reserves which were later used to fund the state's public university system through the Permanent University Fund.[19] In addition, the state's control over offshore oil reserves in Texas runs out to 3 nautical leagues (9 nautical miles, 10.357 statue miles, 16.668 km) rather than three nautical miles (3.45 statue miles, 5.56 km) as with other states.[20] It is also a common fallacy[citation needed] that Texas is the only state that was its own independent entity before it became a US state. This is untrue, as the Republic of Vermont was an independent state from 1777 until it joined the American Union in 1791. The people of Vermont took part in the American Revolution and considered themselves Americans, even if Congress did not recognize the jurisdiction. Because of vehement objections from New York, which had conflicting property claims, the Continental Congress declined to recognize Vermont, then called the New Hampshire Grants. Overtures by Ethan Allen to the organizers to join the Province of Quebec failed. In 1791 Vermont was admitted to the United States as the 14th state. Hawaii was an independent state prior to joining the Union, having been governed as an ancient settlement, a kingdom, a republic, and finally as a U.S. territory prior to statehood in 1959.

This is treaty documentation as set down by the US.Gov ernment and the Republic of Texas and recognized by the Mexican Government. read it an weep you secessionists. We Still can petition the federal government to cut Texas into 4 additional states. SO bring in the down sizing and add Puerto Rico into the Mix. Approval code was 6666 a Texas cattle brand.
