I fervently disagree. And to think the racist Lincoln was willing to allow it to exist in the South if only the Southern States would stay in his union.I don’t disagree, but the fact remains that come 1860 by and large it wasn’t Massachusetts that had folks in chains because of the color of their skin. It wasn’t Pennsylvania, it wasn’t New York, and it wasn’t Iowa. There were a few states who, thinking they may lose slave labor and their “states right” to hold people in chains based on the color of their skin that rebelled against the United States. Thank God they were defeated.
There has been no worse idea in the history of America or the idea democratic government than the idea of the slaveocracy of the CSA.
“Then came the Black Hawk War; and I was elected a Captain of Volunteers - a success which gave me more pleasure than any I have had since.”
Abraham Lincoln, December 20, 1859.
