Biased History

History has been a bit biased at times. Take for instance The War Between The States. Less than 100 years before that, the American colonies wanted to be independent of England, were known as traitors and started a war to get their independence. We still celebrate that today. When the Southern states wanted to do the exact same thing and be independent of the Northern states and the controlling Federal Government (peacefully I might add and for mostly the same reasons) they were also known as traitors; however, they were condemned for it and still are. What’s the difference?

What Hitler did was genocide. But what the early Americans did is called Western expansion. Go figure.
