This was from a 21 year old girl from Texarcana.

Wow. I'm surprised a 21 year old knew that phrase, to be honest. That she had a misshaped view of Civil War history is par for the course, but calling it the war of northern aggression implies a certain involvement or extraordinary bitterness.

She's definitely a racist, albeit a polite one. I suppose that's the antebellum spirit alive and well.

Sons of Confederate Veterans/United Daughters of the Confederacy types use it. No idea how big either is in Texas, but there are plenty of them in the southeast still.
