Thanks Rob. I do agree with you, but then aren't Revolution and Treason one and the same? We celebrate our treasonable actions every July 4th.

Eye of the beholder. If we had lost the war, Britain would have had a bunch of treasonable colonists to deal with afterwards. But we won, so it was a revolution, saving the king from having to lop off a bunch of heads.

Exactly the same process with secession/rebellion. Since the north won, it was the suppression of a rebellion.
