Thanks Cody for another great history lesson.
So much for the folks that claim the war was not about slavery.
It's eerie isn't it, how much the white population of the Civil War
South resembled the more extreme elements of the Republican Party? .
. . White Racists keeping down minorities, while despising the Federal
Government and demanding greater states rights, and the majority were of the
poor and middle classes making sacrifices to prop up the rich one percenters.
