I plan to write a rebuttle and send it to the author.
I will also send the same rebuttle to the SA E-N Letters to the Editor.
The part of the Op Ed that I found historically inaccurate were the author's comments intended to justify his "fact" that slavery
was a product of the South with no mention of the North's role in initiating, continuing, spreading and making use of slavery.
You may view the Op Ed at http://www.mysanantonio.com/opinion/Barbours_attitude_toward_slavery_is_willful_ignorance.html
With a focus on the North's role in slavery, might you please share with me your own thoughts on this in a net, factual form with
citations as to source.
