One hundred and fifty years after the end of the South's war to preserve slavery (read their secession proclamations before you tell me it was about the politically correct "states rights" issue) there is finally some sign that it is counterproductive to national unity and growth to continue to honor what, in any other time, would have been termed treason.

Oh, that's definitely the reason for secession -- it just wasn't the reason for the Civil War. Not that slavery remained legal in non-Confederate states until the 13th was passed.
