4 1/2 Stars: Slavery Was Not the Cause of the War Between the States: The Irrefutable Argument.

Via Gene Kizer

This book proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that the North did not go to war to free the slaves or end slavery. The North went to war because it faced economic annihilation and a Southern competitor that controlled the most demanded commodity on earth: cotton. The North's economy was based mostly on manufacturing for the South and shipping Southern cotton around the world. Cotton alone was 60% of U.S. exports in 1860.

When the South seceded, the Northern economy began a dramatic collapse, and by war time, there were hundreds of thousands of hungry, unemployed Northerners in the street --- and the "tocsin of war" sounded. Economically ignorant Northern leaders then passed the astronomical Morrill Tariff that threatened to destroy the Northern shipping industry by rerouting trade away from the high-tariff North and into the low-tariff South. The Morrill Tariff was like pumping gasoline into an already raging fire. Abraham Lincoln was the first sectional president in American history. He was president of the North, and the North was clamoring for war. He saw an opportunity to start it without appearing to be the aggressor, so he took it. Thus, he started a war that killed 800,000 men and wounded a million.

The idea that the good North was so outraged over slavery that they marched armies into the South to free the slaves is an absurdity of biblical proportions and this book proves it.

  1. Hi Brock,
    All "Good and Honorable" intentions be Damned!!!!! If you want the truth.......,"FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!!!"
    Got Gunz......OUTLAW!!!!!,

  2. How does a generation of abolitionist propaganda demonizing the south play into the inevitable outbreak of war? Economic or not, wasn't anti-slavery propaganda the root cause of hostilities?

    1. Absolutely and we're getting the same crap from the current commie administration hoping to start a race war which bothers me to no end because there are many country Blacks who are conservative and could get treated as radicals though I pray not. My cousins around Tarboro are certainly welcome at my place in the event of such.

  3. The ignoramuses will keep on beating the same old drum
    because it sounds so good. Old Abe, keep em or don't
    keep em, he could care less; he just needed the South's
    money/resources. LD
