Yankee Thing

You are right 1861, the war is certainly over and the South did lose. Living your life as if the conflict is still playing out is probably not healthy. Negativity toward your fellow man is also not healthy. But many times when someone from the South says "yankee", they only mean a "newcomer". And yes, newcomers should pay more for some public development costs, than long time residents. I can understand some hostility on this point. This comes from not planning ahead AND establishing proper impact fees. Getting back to the war, North Carolina was also the last port to remain open for southern supplies. I guess the blockade runner mentality also survives!
