I see you quote me in your signature, or whatever. Taking something I said out of context:
...slavery ended because of the Confederacy.
The totality of what I stated:
How long would slavery had existed if the Confederacy didn't exist? 10, 20, 30 years? Less? More? I highly doubt Lincoln would have ended it. The war ended it. Racist Southerners don't blame their side for losing, they don't even blame the US for winning, they blame black people because they see it as: if it weren't for them they wouldn't even had to fight.
Tell me how that is not true? If the Civil War didn't happen, Congress would have done next to nothing to end slavery. I've read varying biographies and histories on the US Civil War since I was a teenager and the basic consensus is that if the Confederacy never existed then slavery would have at least existed to the late 19th Century (around early to mid 1890s). The only reason slavery ended as quickly as it did was because the South seceded, and Lincoln, to keep the Union whole, declared war against the South.
Slavery actually didn't end nationwide until 1868. Lincoln may have used his powers as president to Emancipate the slaves in the seceded states but states apart of the Union that had slaves still had them at the start, during, and after the war.
If the Confederacy never existed slavery would have for, perhaps, many decades after Lincoln became president. As stated: "slavery ended because of the Confederacy".
So "Wha?" that you prick. If you actually took the stick out of your ass and responded to me, you wouldn't have to quote me out of context.
