Posted to illustrate a concept people like you never seem to grasp: Though we must always be careful to look at history through the eyes of those that made it, there are some concepts and practices that are so morally corrupt that those who supported them (like the CSA, or Hitler's Germany, or Imperialist Japan) have no defense, regardless of what they believed. The Confederacy secceded soley because they feared that Lincoln was going to make good on his promise to end slavery. Any additions to that statement are revisionism.
Your picture of General Sherman gets a slaveship for an answer, for this simple reason: We fought that war because your side didn't think that black people had any human rights.

US flagged slave ships were registered to mostly Yankee concerns, and outlawed by 1807(could have the year wrong). Again, nothing to do with the subject.
If you keep comparing me and my ancestors to Japs and nazi's of the wwii era, we're gonna have a problem. A person implying that are the scum of the earth, anyone that does that deserves my utmost scorn and invective.
