Ugh. As a person who opposes the Old South and all that "Lost Cause" stuff that STILL divides my home region to this day, I cannot participate in anything that calls the Confederacy a "country." Yes, I see you acknowledge that it was never recognized as such, but the entire concept is still "icky." Sorry - I just had to get this off my chest. Thanks.
