Beautifully spoken. Tell you the truth, I prefer the agricultural environment.
Man, slave owners were unscrupulous as all tarnation though. North, South, don't be surprised people who would take ownership over another person to
be morally corrupt.
But the North and the Union shouldn't moralize over slavery when they owned them until up to just a few years before the war. They have no right to
claim the moral high ground. Especially when their idea of outlawing something is just changing the name.
Lincoln is in my opinion one of the worst presidents ever. He waged war on his own people, suspended habeas corpus, and made horrible judgement calls.
It's a rotten soul that tries to convince a military man like Robert E. Lee to fight against his own home state of Virginia. And it shows a
fundamental lack of understanding of Lee's character on Lincoln's behalf.
And it's a poor judge of character to give the position of general to a degenerate alcoholic like Ulysses S. Grant. And then, Grant becomes
president. In any fair world, the south would have won independence, Grant would have lived the rest of his life in disgrace like the miserable drunk
he was, and Lincoln would be alive to live out the rest of his life as a failure and a deposed tyrant.
A man can dream, right?
