Both attempted secessions in our history were resisted with force from the pre-existing government. In addition to the attempted secession of the CSA, you had either the successful secession of the Republic of Texas, or the colonies, depending on where you hail from in what is now the United States. Technically, I guess some people could count all 3 as part of "their" history, if they had ancestors living in the colonies circa 1776, and also had ancestors living in the Mexican province of Tejas circa 1834. Those people would have a record of 2 victories and 1 defeat for the region(s) that were attempting to secede.wheelgun1958 wrote:If ya'll recall, the CSA was not allowed to secede either.
Non-violent separations of one group from another are the exception, not the norm. It's kind of like divorce in that respect
