    don't put words in my mouth. if you bothered to read, you would see that i posted that a typical soldier, not just confederate soldier, wasn't highly educated. of course, that would require something more than a knee jerk reaction.

    I am curious if you are only referring to the plantation owners or everyone.

    Your first comment concerning this was, "i am wondering just how educated the typical confederate soldier was." in post #105. I didn't put any words in your mouth since you said it yourself.

    Yes but by asking that, she wasn't suggesting the typical northern soldier was any better
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Everyone since plantantion owners accounted for less then 10% of the population. They also held 90% of the slaves. Slave owners were all races, so don't try the whites were only slave owners card. Your average Confederate didn't own a single slave and fought against invasion of their homes by an out of control federal government.

    There were black slave owners? Again, do you disagree that the main reason the south seceded was the state right of slavery?

    How does plantation owners being less than 10% of the population equate to all free southerners being educated? Also, what do you consider educated? Basic reading skills, knowing a trade, some sort of arithmetic skills, something else?

    I already told you that the south seceded over the Morrell Tariff. Slavery was used as the language since it was an economic issue as well as a legislative issue. Slavery was NOT on the table in 1861 since Lincoln made it clear that he was fine with slavery and his support of the Corwin Amendment. He threatened war if the south didn't comply with the Morrell Tariff. Picking and choosing what you want to use is not an option. You have to use the documents in their historical context and you haven't been. As an aside, slavery was legal in the United States for 79 years and protected by the Constitution of the United States. It was legal in the north during the entire war. A historical sidenote that when the Statute of Freedom was raised in 1863 over the US Capitol Building it was done by slaves. How ironic is that?

    Yes, there were black slave owners. Yes, because I use the entire historical context which you refuse to do.
