Why should he if the condition for that meeting is recognition of the bandits who stole everything not nailed down, are some kind of recognized country?well, the Union did have a part in the war....
Like Pickett said, "I believe the Union army had something to do with it."
i mean they were not dispassionately running away from marauding hoards of Confederate soldiers roaming freely among the Northern populace
Bad pre-rebellion planning/assumptions about Northern "greasy mechanics" I suppose.
and the Confederates sent numerous delegations to seek a peaceful resolution
Numerous? How many delegations were sent to Washington before Ft. Sumter was fired on?
but sending a fleet of warships and 3 speedy tug boats with 200 reinforcement troops to the harbor leading to Sumter stopped any peace talks ongoing....
It was over the day South Carolina seceded.
that and Lincoln refused to meet with any delegations
