    I agree, when all is said and done, there was no real plan of how, exactly, the gov't formed was supposed, or would, operate . they had only a pious expectation(or hope?) that the government of, by and for, the people would work it out over time, and, in fact, it did...more or less.

    Then you already know Chief Justice Chase's opinion. There is no need to go to the effort of providing you with a reference to what you have already seen, so why ask for it?

    Actually, the Constitution reference says it is the same United States.

    Off the top of my head the differences between US founding fathers v Confederates.
    • Had inclusive representation every State except RI had representation. The Confederates did not.
    • The AOC had failed and there was an impending external crisis. The US had not failed, the crisis was manufactured by the Confederates and the Confederates resorted to armed force.
    • Had many concerns. The Confederates had few-slavery being the dominate one.
    • The Constitutional writing process started in March 1785 with the Mount Vernon Conference continued in September 1786 with the Annapolis Convention and ended in Philadelphia 30 months later. The Confederate writing process was from February 28, 1861, to March 11, 1861 less than a month.
    • The US ratification took place in peace time. The CSA in war time.
    • The US ratification took from Sept 1787 to May 1790 about 30 months, the CSA ratification 11 months.
    Feel free to add.
