People misguidedingly focusing on four years and ignoring that the majority occured in the other 250 would be very relevant if one is interested in actually being honest.
While slavery existed in this country prior to the civil war, only one group of slavery fanatics were so addicted to it that they would betray their country and start a war to protect it. And it’s that same generation that the author focuses her attention, and indicts for sexually assaulting her ancestors.
