I went to lecture tonight given by a man about whether or not the south should of freed slaves in order to have them fight for the south. On one hand the Union used 200,000 slaves to fight on their side and they made up 44% of the south population. Then other hand they would have been free and once the war was over they would not longer be slaves for them on their plantation. Then there is also what happened in Haiti. I of cours em for freeing of the slaves and the union winning! I just thought to change the subject alittle.What do you think?
