Academic uncovers lost London resting place of Charles Kuhn Prioleau, and the forgotten story of Confederate support in Britain

The grave of a man who bankrolled the Confederate side in the American civil war, and ended up costing the British government £3.3m in compensation to the victorious north, has been tracked down in a patch of brambles in a London cemetery.
Charles Kuhn Prioleau, a cotton merchant born in Charleston, South Carolina, was based in Liverpool during the war, from 1861 to 1865. He disappeared from history in a bonfire of company records and correspondence after his firm went bankrupt, having sent supplies, funds, and blockade-busting ships to the Confederates.
But his mortal remains have now been traced to Kensal Green cemetery by a US academic who is gradually unearthing the almost forgotten story of Confederate support in England, which takes in the highest ranks of British politics and society.

in point of fact, there are a LOT of documents that indicate that "enumerated protections for the RIGHTS of citizens & the POWERS of the sovereign States must be included for the State to ratify the Constitution" (VA)was one of the MAIN reasons that the AOC were ditched.
what part of the rather specific language of the 9th & 10th Amendments do you NOT understand??? (particularly the portion of the 10th that says that those rights & powers NOT CEDED to the central government REMAIN with the States & the CITIZENS of those sovereign states.)
In as much as we’re all scholars here, pwrhaps you could make more specific reference to the documents, say by naming them.
go look at the "ratification documents" of almost ANY state & you'll see that the delegates were "concerned" at best & most of the delegations of "the little brothers" were AFRAID of the potential power of NJ,NY, PA & VA.
i KNOW that you've been told endlessly that the 9th & 10th Amendments do NOT mean what the plain text plainly says, but SORRY, i'm correct on this.
furthermore, my 18 ancestors were 100% "in the right", when they fought against the hegemony of the ELITES, against the ever worsening power of the northern Leviathan & FOR liberty.
It’s never too late to call “swattie’s law” (FreeRepublic’s version of Godwin’s law).
Hey swattie - I bet you could prove your claim of “100,ooo- 150,ooo” (whatever that means!) free blacks volunteering if you got a copy of Blackerby’s book and showed us.
What do you say?
we all note that you've managed, for once, to post a comment of more than 25 words without saying something disgusting, VULGAR and/or CRUDE.
PITY that you haven't figured out that you are just a SICK joke to everyone on FR. we all wish you GONE.
they won't care how many crude/ignorant/bigoted comments that you post, as there are NO ladies or impressionable children there to offend and (like you) they HATE the southland & southerners.
Ease up on the use of seemingly random CAPITALIZATIONS.
And we notice that you didn’t address the substance of my post, which is for you to put up of shut up. Should be easy to do....unless you are lying again.
PLEASE apologize for your prejudiced, STUPID, dishonest, posts & VULGAR comments & RESIGN.
like most FReepers, i have NOTHING more to say to you.- just get lost.
So you are lying...thought so...
be gone to DAILY KOOKS, you CRUDE little LOUT!!!
as you KNOW that i said that i do NOT have a copy, you (once more) look STUPID & PREJUDICED.
we all also note that you've once more been able to compose one post without being VULGAR.(that's quite a change for you.===> did you perhaps get "called down" by a moderator for smearing filth on the forum???)
It is immensely obvious that you have a profoundly more difficult time keeping a civil tongue bin your mouth, but it certainly comes as no surprise.
Equally obvious is your intention to behave as though acting like an idiot was some sort of virtue.
And what I’m fascinated is how you feeeel that you can make any goofy claim that you want and then get all uppity when someone asks you to substantiate it.
You have no credibility because not only are your claims incredible, but you are UNcredible.
Where’s the book Squattie?
aren't you at least smart enough to know that everybody will be laughing AT you too, when i "rub his nose in" his KNOWING LIES, as you're foolish enough to believe him???
laughing AT you.
No you half-wit, I won’t look stupid because you won’t deliver what you can’t deliver. You can’t deliver it because it doesn’t exist. If it did you would have thrown it in our faces long ago. The only nose rubbing you are likely to be doing is when you’re down at the public library sniffing bicycle seats.
And no, I really don’t lose sleep worrying about what people think of me. I post for my own pleasure.....and your discomfort...;’}
