No one talks about the high tarrifs on cotton and goods perpetratrated by the North on sales of goods and then resold to Europe for profit!
The South was carrying the Nation on Items from food to textiles! The same as today but on an individual basis!
The Government is taking the working class to the cleaners!
How unfair of the North to take the fruit of the labor of those hard-working slaves in the South and slap high tariffs on it.
