Slavery was still going on up north, in fact Delaware and Kentucky didn't ratify the 13th amendment until 1901 and 1976 respectively although the amendment passed in December of 1865
    In 1860, except for two border states, there was a grand total of ZERO SLAVES IN THE NORTH....but there were almost FOUR MILLION SLAVES IN THE SOUTH.

    1860 Census Results

    The notion that north were the aggressors is nonsense because Lincoln wouldn't have been able to end slavery unless the beligerant states in the south attacked first. Lincoln was just trying to stop a rebellion. Do you guys still call yourselves "rebels?"

    Exactly. Only scum attack women and children for no good reason.

    Of course we're rebels! We rebelled against tyranny.

    You just keep getting better and better. Did you just fall out of 1861? Time travel, maybe?

    There was a good reason: to bring the civil war to its conclusion.

    The confederate army had to be defeated in order to end the war, and Sherman believed that the best way to do that was to destroy the souths ability to wage war and supply its troops.

    You rebelled to keep slavery. But you probably could've kept slavery...if you hadn't rebelled.

    Like I said, piece of scum attacks women and children because it is simply a piece of scum. My ancestors fell victim to this thing and its cohorts. Like I said, if there is any justice in this world, that scum is burning in hell.
