A Specious Claim
"That we do not overstate the dangers to our institution, a reference to a few facts will sufficiently prove.
The hostility to this institution commenced before the adoption of the Constitution, and was manifested in the well-known Ordinance of 1787, in regard to the Northwestern Territory.
It [the hostility of northern abolitionist] has grown until it denies the right of property in slaves, and refuses protection to that right on the high seas, in the Territories, and wherever the government of the United States had jurisdiction.
It [the Union] advocates negro equality, socially and politically, and promotes insurrection and incendiarism in our midst."
History is a dangerous tool left in the hands of propagandists like the Kennedys. Do your research and see how wrong these guys are.
Try Chandra Mannings examination of soldier's letters in her "What This Cruel War Was Over".
I implore you to discover this countries real history of racial hatred and institutionalized racism. It is important. (Yes, the north was just as racist).

The other side's view
A well researched (but not as well written) look at how the South saw the "Civil War." A good starting point for any Yankee who has the courage to ask, "how did the other side see it?" Amongst other things, the author does a good job of contrasting the racial intolerance of the northern states to the false piety Yankees use to justify the war.Was this review helpful?
