    Discussion The South Defeated Itself, Lincoln Could Have Slept Through The Whole Thing.

    The South Defeated Itself. I don't know how many times I have read theories that Lincoln engaged in elaborate plots that would have astounded Machiavelli to start, pursue & win the Civil War. After over fifty years studying the war, I have concluded that the South defeated itself, Lincoln...

    Discussion Civil War Tintype---North or South?!?

    I just added this ninth plate tintype to my collection. I would bet the farm that it was taken 1861 - 1865. But I don't know if it depicts a northern or southern mother with her two sons. The clothing could be a big clue. Any thoughts or ideas?

    Was SC Preparing for War Before Lincoln's Election?

    South Carolina seceded December 20, 1860, followed by other states in early 1861. The accepted reason is that South Carolinians were shocked at the outcome of the 1860 election and feared that the incoming Lincoln Administration would end slavery or at the least curtail its expansion.

    Antebellum Non-Slave Labor Conditions in America

    In discussing slavery, comparisons are sometimes made with labor conditions in the non-slavery states.
