1.) head of household. . dude, go to a National park. You see a ton of homes with no sign of what you're claiming.
2.) The ENTIRE REST OF THE WORLD seen it otherwise. Even future presidents like Woodrow Willson. Guy was a big time scholar said:
“It was necessary to put the South at a moral disadvantage by transforming the contest from a war waged against states fighting for their
independence into a war waged against states fighting for the maintenance and extension of slavery.”
“The contest is really for empire on the side of the North, and for independence on that of the South, and in this respect we recognize an exact
analogy between the North and the Government of George III, and the South and the Thirteen Revolted Provinces. “
—London Times, November 7, 1861.
“Every man should endeavor to understand the meaning of subjugation before it is too late…It means the history of this heroic struggle will be
written by the enemy; that our youth will be trained by Northern schoolteachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the war; will
be impressed by the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as fit objects of
derision…It is said slavery is all we are fighting for, and if we give it up, we give up all. Even if this were true, which we deny, slavery is not
all our enemies are fighting for. It is merely the pretense to establish sectional superiority and a more centralized form of government, and to
deprive us of our rights and liberties.”
—Maj. General Patrick R. Cleburne, CSA, January 1864.
As for the South, it is enough to say that perhaps eighty percent of her armies were neither slave-holders, nor had the remotest interest in the
institution. No other proof, however, is needed than the undeniable fact that at any period of the war from its beginning to near its close, the South
could have saved slavery by simply laying down its arms and returning to the Union.”
—Confederate Lt. General John B. Gordon, later a distinguished Governor and U.S. Senator from Georgia.
They (the South) know that it is their import trade that draws from the [Southern] people’s pockets sixty or seventy millions of dollars [$1.5 to
$1.7 billion in 2012 dollars] per annum, in the shape of duties, to be expended mainly in the North, and in the protection and encouragement of
Northern interests. These are the reasons why these people do not wish the South to secede from the union.”
New Orleans Daily Crescent, 1861.
“The principle for which we contend is bound to reassert itself, though it may be at another time and in another form.”
—President Jefferson Davis, CSA.
It goes on...and on...and on...and on... THE ENTIRE WORLD DISAGREE WITH YOU.
and yes, there was a growing group to abolish slavery as a international thing. Fire Eaters are morons who didn't understand basic foriegn policy or
fact that Europe had a union to push to end slavery. It was dying out dude. Besides... why try to get more slaves from Africa when you have Indian
territories just next state over? All of Oklahoma could of been enslaved. Who would they "internationally" trade them too? It was dead or dying.
You wanna say "oh, you don't mention the 2nd part about slavery". You're victim and bully here. It's protection of intetest, of course slave owners
wanted slavery. DUH! of course theyd like to go get em more negroes, didn't mean it would be allowed not just by America.. but by most of civilized
war! LMAO! I know slavery would have ended because listen to slaves! Slaves say was dying out, non slavers said was dying out..50 years later it was
banned by League of Nations... it was DEAD AND DYING. Abolitionist in North was weak few.. North didn't want end slavery either.. but guess what? IT
1.) England and all of Europe is stupid and don't have a say or know what's going on.
2.) South sympathizers are deemed "Lost Causes"
3.) Highest scholar to ever become president at time was Woodrow Willson, but he's an idiot.
We're all crazy because yanks changed our history. What's easier to believe? 1/2 of historians in America of wrong and entire rest of world is wrong
and all people who write before, during, and after world is lying.. or is dupped by a handful of MORONS (Fire Eaters)
It's so crazy! lol
Look, think of it like a court.
On prosecution side, north claim slavery was cause
On the defendant side, south claim it's state rights, slavery, taxes.. It's a lot of things.
Who decides? A jury. Why? Because they have 0 affiliations and or political biased. Who's the jury? Europe and Canada. Who do they vote in favor? The
But were the crazy ones, right?
