the south left the union due to a tariff on cotton imposed by a northern controlled congress that put more money in the federal government and took money out of the farmers hands . ( by the way, great way to encourage slave owners to give up slavery and pay the folks who worked for them.)
since cotton was one of the largest exports , and as the south no longer part of america , they had to force the south back into the union to get the tax revenue back. and they freed the salves as a throw in to keep the northern people behind the union. ( folks are not marching off to war for federal tax revenue.)
so, the " south fought to keep slavery , the north fought to keep the slaves " is a fake history.
the north would have had no problem with slaves picking cotton if they would have kept getting tariff revenue.
By the Dems, exactly. So let the Dems bury their past as quickly as they can so they don't lose voters this election year. Pelosi declaring they all need to be pulled down while being silent about her own father who erected confederate statues himself. smh If Dems were honest about their past I wouldn't mind. Reps. need to get out of their way and let them shoot themselves in the foot. .
Yes, I've looked them up, very imposing and stark, a reminder of those who died under that regime. Americans need to see them then hear the history, that is where we are headed of people don't wake up.
er...I dont ever remember white people are told they have to feel guilty but theres been PLENTY of instances where white people have automatically branded black people guilty for crimes they hadnt even done.
its called lynching. ad if that did not happen on.a regualr basis we would not even be having this discussion
americans are quite weird in that the north fought to make the union as rhey wanted to expand and the south fought to keep seperate.
what could have happened is the south could have just agreed to free all the slaves without fighting but they werent gonna budge on that and wanted to go to war over it instead. the slaves themselves werent involved in the actual fighting. they were just caught up in it. If theyy had marched for freedom or just left, which many did, the south would have gome after the, and tried to get them back when they had nobody to work on the plantations anymore, since they were too lazy pardon my language to actually pick the cotton themselves.
