The Civil War conflict that divided this nation was not about slavery. The addition of the slavery issue was primarily a political one and only the PC modern historians claim that slavery was.

Slavery in the North was just as prevalent as in the South, before and after the Civil War. The North simply called their slaves "Indentured Servants".... Kinda the same way Howard Dean says all the Democrats need to do is define their immoral platform by using language more suitable for their PC Base

So there were more than 4 million indentured servants in the North? I'd love to see the support that you have for that claim.
