Of course slavery is evil but, while it was practiced in numerous places throughout the world, the U.S is the only country to use it as an excuse to go to war. It was abolished everywhere else through civilized political process. The atrocities committed by the Northern troops against Southerners, both black and white, dwarf any perceived purpose they claimed to justify their actions. By the way, I have read the book and it is very good.

It is evil, but Lincoln, via the “Corwin Amendment,” supported its preservation in the states where it existed at the time of his inauguration.

Oh, sure it's evil.

But what to do? We had to get your mills the cotton, and couldn't pick it all by ourselves.

We would have preferred to work the Irish, but y'all had all of them.
