The myth of Confederate liberty
That myth has been around since Jeff Davis, the ex-rebel president, penned his tedious, self-righteous memoir, "The Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government," in 1881.

The Union president had no such qualms; he suspended habeas corpus and jailed the occasional opposition leader in order to win the war.
