28706, It was never about the morality of slavery
Posted by Cocobrotha2, Fri Mar-11-05 01:05 PM
I believe (hope) that's what folks are saying when they say "It wasn't about slavery". The morality supporting abolition was just window dressing for the ecnomic impact that abolition would have on the south.

If the north could've benefited from slavery, or if the south hadn't been as dependant on slavery, Lincoln wouldn't have said sheeeit about the slaves.
