Where did you get that information from? Grandpa Jimmy Jack Flash with the iron lung.i think you do need to say moreYou said defending the confederacy. Need I say more?
The Confederacy involved far more than slavery although slavery was an important issue
So I'm quite willing to defend the Confederacy from uninformed liberals who want to stir up have over old and long settled issues
The issue of slavery has been distorted in the narrative by the winners.
Slavery was legal at the Federal level in the US for almost 90 years before the Civil War, during the Civil War and for almost a year after the Civil War.
The great debates about slavery were nothing more than political posturing for the expansion into the West.
If a territory was to be admitted as a state and was slave then it would be dominated by Democrats. If it was to be admitted as free then it would be dominated by Republicans.
The debate over slavery was nothing more than establishing partisan power. Not much different than nowadays.
There was an anti slavery movement but mostly Americans didn't give a shit one way or another. Contrary to what a Jr high School History Book (written by the winners) will say the Civil War was fought over Federal control, not slavery.
Union solders didn't put their lives at risk to free the slaves and Southern soldiers didn't fight to keep the slaves.
Lincoln raised his regiments to kill Americans and Davis raised his regiments to defend against an invasion.
These stupid uneducated Moon Bats don't know things like that.
It's historical fact that slavery was legal in The United States.
These Moon Bats don't know jackshit about History. They are as ignorant in History as they are in Economics, Climate Science, Biology, Ethics and the Constitution.
Slavery was legal at the Federal level until the 13th Amendment was passed almost a year after the war ended.
These Moon Bats don't know things like that.
