The Confederacy was only protecting their financial institution of cotton. Cotton was king. The slaves equaled cotton. Period. The confederacy did not care about the white man north or south. We dont need the slaves. Can you imagine how the unemployment rate would drop, and the salaries increase.
I would have fought for Lincoln Then, But not for todays government.
This crud that Lincoln did not care about the White man, north or south is ridiculous. It is the opposite. The south only cared about its cotton, and tobacco, prostitution, and every other worthless --it.
Backing Lincolns federal government then would have been the right solution. However, backing the federal government of today who forced the civil rights against the States would not be right. Therefore, todays confederacy of rebels who would oppose todays federal government would be the right chouice to re-establish the original America and the original intent of America.
