      Yes. They were loyal to their States like Lee was.

      Why wouldnt Washington? he even took a Virginian army against a Northern force.

      Better question, would VIRGINIAN Founding Fathers defend VIRGINIA during the civil war.

      Yes.

      Jefferson would. Washington and Madison wouldn't

      Washington no
      Jefferson yea, especially if the French were licking the CSA’s taint

      They would unless Virginia joined the Union.

      The North as a whole, and certainly Lincoln, didn't want to revolutionize anything beyond simply containing slavery to already established slave states. As all the Founding Fathers but Jefferson explicitly believed in perpetual unionism and were against the expansion of slavery, there is no reason to assume they'd not stand with the Union.

      Lincoln's administration literally set up American propaganda departments in Russia, Germany, and Japan, and Lincoln himself wanted Alexander II to build a railroad from Moscow to Washington.

      They were futurists.

        Washington would ultimately not have supported a breakaway force. He would have tried to preserve the Union. He may not have volunteered to march south, but he wouldn't have joined the CSA either.

        That "northern force" was joined by many southerners and wasn't drawing lines along cultural differences like the CSA did. It was a revolt that could've happened in any state. His forces were also entirely volunteer militia

    Jefferson would have, because what was happening was obviously bullshit and an attempt to further pozz the United States' core ideas.

    I believe Washington would’ve been similar to Lee, completely opposed to secession, but more than willing to take up arms for his state against the Union once it came to.

      Not after the presidency, no. He hated Jefferson by the end of his career and was pure Federalist. Had he never been POTUS, maybe.

    The "founding fathers" couldn't even agree on every issue in their own lifetimes. You'd have to read up on their takes regarding government and connect the dots yourself.

    Yes. It is absolutely bizarre to see liberals try to argue that there was some great break between the generations. The South simply wanted to preserve 18th century colonial American society, whereas the North wanted to completely revolutionize the country, and very quickly they did. The Gilded Age America they fought for was simply the total antithesis of what Jefferson, Adams, Washington etc. imagined.

    The founding fathers argued about leaving the crown constantly
    Founding fathers supported the UK in many of the tinderbox situations leading up to the declaration
    John Adams himself defended the Boston 'massacre' as Englishmen defending themselves from violent, unruly Black folks

    The Union would have been the South.
    The Confederacy would have been the North.
    Reminder the Northerners tried to negotiate a peace with the British during the War of 1812 while Andrew Jackson was BTFOing them in New Orleans.
