What about the 'left-wingers' who cling to the party that wanted to uphold slavery?
All of those saying it was about slavery are just worthless mouthpieces for what they know not.
Because there are still places where slavery is being done, and they do nothing about it.
In other words, the slavery chanters are just using this as some kind of perceived leverage for selfish reasons while places where there are actual slaves and slave trading are being ignored and dismissed.
The leftists always have fake trigger objects to project their agenda upon everyone like some kind of shakedown racket.
Fake because they really don't give a real damn except caring only about themselves in their own world.

I suggest you pick up a history book and learn about a group called abolishinist.Slavery, quickly falling out of favor in the Northern states, was abolished throughout in the North by 1804. So your belief their were slaves in the north us a myth but at least you learned something
if it was then why was slavery legal in the union until 1863?

And even then, the Emancipation Proclomation only freed the slaves in conquered Southern territory.
