Not hung up on a perfect example.You seem hung up on the concept of “betrayal.”
Washington and the Founders betrayed England. Everything you mentioned in your post regarding the Confederacy could apply to them as well.
In your mind, betrayal is acceptable as long as those who do the betraying win.
Washington and the Founders rebelled against England for reasons far different than the Confederacy ever did.
In my mind, the Confederacy and Lee betrayed the Founders and the United States for one of the worst reasons a people ever did.
In trying to read my mind, you have made a very wrong conclusion on my expressed views.
