What man could be so morally bankrupt as to sacrifice his sons for the purpose of keeping his slaves?
Answer: None, nada, no one...
No country ever went to war to abolish slavery, none, and it didn’t happen here either. There was no war until the president sent troops to force Southern States to remain in the Union against their will to pay the taxes (tariffs) that were then supporting the US government. NO INVASION NO WAR PERIOD…and the so called “first shot” was intentionally provoked by the North in order to make it “appear” as if the South were the aggressor.
No Northern farm boy or factory worker was going to risk death and dismemberment to free slaves in the South 150 years ago, when many Northern states had slaves themselves. To prove my point, how many of you are willing to fight and die to free the estimated 27 million slaves that exist in the world today? That’s what I thought…(estimate from Free the Slaves website).
However, a man will fight to defend his land and family from invaders. And a young Northern boy could be convinced by his self serving representatives in Congress that it's his patriotic duty to do the invading. The rest is history.
