YOU won; so YOU get to write your own version of history. I have enough on my plate stomaching and defending myself from the Marxist/Communist that your northern cesspool cities have foisted upon us “damned rednecks” down here in the Bible Belt. - Yep. My great,great grandfather fought at Shiloh in the Rebel army, and probably fired the FIRST SHOT at Fort Sumter, SOUTH Carolina because YA’LL WERE DOWN HEAH!
Land of Lincoln, indeed. - Maybe in the next life we’ll not have to live under this load of crap dumped on us by this “modern day Lincoln”. If Lincoln had been so brilliant he surely could have seen that slavery was on its way out anyway due to industrial innovations.
God didn’t smile on chattel slavery anyplace. The new Confederacy would have been stronger sans that institution — not weaker.
The mechanical cotton picker didn’t come into use until 1942. Slavery wasn’t dieing out because of technological innovation in the 1800’s. Some places it just didn’t fit very well like the great plains. That did not stop the slavery advocates from trying to push into that area.
