@Connor Sloan yeah, Congress agreed to allow slavery in some states and allow those States to get back ran away slaves. This was passed in a bill. Then the north decided to not do what they said they wanted to. They changed the contract. The civil war is trash because slavery would of died 20 years later if it never took place. Lincoln is by far in the top 5 worst presidents of all time.

Wait...what? "In the North a growing abolitionist movement was taking root"? When? Before the Civil War began, the North didn't want to fight the South and declined to go to war for Lincoln. Our military was supposed to be voluntary, so Lincoln couldn't force the North to fight. So, he created conscription, sorta like the modern day draft. If you got called to war via conscription, you could buy your way out of it if you were wealthy enough Or, if you were black, you didn't have to worry about being drafted to fight as the conscription didn't apply to blacks. As a result, on the day the conscription was out in to action, New York exploded in to riots against it. They already told Lincoln to just let the Confederacy seceed from the Union, so being forced to fight in a war they didn't believe in enraged them. New Yorkers took to the streets and burned the homes of the wealthy and hung black men in the streets. IIRC, around 100 black men were killing by the hangings in New York that happened that day. That sound like a "growing abolitionist movement" to you? Edit to clarify: The riots didn't occur before the war. I meant New York, before the war, expressed they didn't want to get involved. After all, nearly half of their economy relied on southern cotton.

@shinyribs Because the Emancipation Proclamation used presidential war powers. It essentially confiscated rebel property and released it. Those powers wouldn'tapply to areas not in rebellion. If Lincoln had applied the EP to all slaves everywhere, all it would have taken is one Missouri farmer to sue and declare the EP unconstitutional and that's the ballgame, freeing the slaves just became a lot harder. The EP also did a whole lot more than free some slaves. It also allowed for the enlistment of black troops, of which 200,000 enlisted.
shinyribs
shinyribs 13 orë më parë
@Connor Sloan ,agreed . The Confederacy wasn't recognized, the Union viewed them as rebel States. The EM only applied to rebel States. If the North was hell-bent on freeing slaves ( as the video says) then why didn't they free their own slaves? Why did they only target the rebel States? I'm not trying to argue. I'm honestly asking questions. I'm open minded and willing to listen to differing points of view, I just need to make sense of them for myself. The EM seems pointless since the only States affected by it would obviously never adhere to it. Perhaps not? I just feels like it was nothing more than posturing.
Connor Sloan
Connor Sloan 22 orë më parë
@shinyribs I said it only applied to the rebel states. That's what the South was, states in rebellion. The Confederacy was never a sovereign nation. Ergo the EP applied to them.
shinyribs
shinyribs 23 orë më parë
@Connor Sloan The Emancipation Proclamation only applied to stated who were in rebellion of the Union, therefore it did not apply to the Confederacy, who were refusing to be considered part of the Union. It didn't apply to Northern States because they were not in rebellion. Look up the document and read the wording for yourself. Its written in very plain language and specifically says it only applies to rebel States.
Connor Sloan
Connor Sloan 23 orë më parë
@shinyribs Wow, you really don't understand history. Like at all. The Republican Party plan was an anti-slavery plan. Abolition and anti-slavery aren't necessarily the same thing. Abolition is the immediate emancipation of all slaves. This was considered unconstitutional by most republicans. Their plan was to stop the spread of slavery into the territories and let slavery die out contained in the South. So no, Lincoln and the republican party were not the champions of abolition, but they were the champions of being anti-slavery. The Civil War was never a tariff war. That's a Lost Cause red herring. It was always about slavery because the South made it always about slavery. The EP freed every slave it was within Lincoln's authority to free. It did declare every slave in the rebel states free, all the Union army had to do was get to them. It also immediately freed around 50,000 slaves that had escaped to the Union Army. Prior to the EP they would have been forced back into slavery. How the EP worked was it confiscated rebel property, the President doesn't have the authority to take property from non-rebels. So what you want the EP to do is illegal. All it would have taken was one Missouri farmer to sue and have the EP declared unconstitutional and that's the ballgame. Freeing the slaves just got that much harder. It also did more than just free the slaves, it also allowed for the enlistment of black troops into the Union military of which 200,000 volunteered. "Truth is, it's the majority of the citizens that wanted and pushed for this change." By voting for the Republicans, who then passed the 13th Amendment freeing the slaves. And again, you clearly don't understand history. Colonization was the liberal idea at the time. The two trains of thought were, they either stay here as slaves or we send them somewhere else. Few people thought they'd want to stay in a country that had enslaved them for generations. And after he signed the EP he abandoned all plans for colonization. "but the American people fought their government to end slavery" Nope. All they did was elect people that passed the 13th Amendment.

@Mike Copeland It's not that grave a disassociation. The Parties of 1860 have very little to do with the Parties of today. Even then, the color scheme we use now is new. It didn't become a thing until the late 90s. It could easily change again. And let's not forget, Lincoln was a liberal Republican.
Mike Copeland
Mike Copeland Ditë më parë
​@Connor Sloan Yes, I am aware of that historical fact, and thank you for pointing that out to whoever may read this. My somewhat rhetorical question, though, was getting to just that point...how many young people and/or others without that knowledge will watch this and make a grave misassociation (even if at just a subconscious level) with slave states and the modern day (and now red) Republican party? When history proves quite the opposite of Republicans being the bad guys in this respect, relative to the southern Democrats.

In part though what is left out in this is WHO brought the slaves to America!! What a lot of people DO NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT is the fact slavery was part of the "Rum Trade" which predates the Revolutionary War and BEFORE America was even its own country!! You see the Rum Trade wasn't just about Rum! In fact the Rum Trade was a deal brought about by the Dutch, who were a key part of the slave trade to start with!! Mainly the Dutch (Dutch Indies Company) wanted items like Rum, Molasses, Cotton, Sugar Cane and Tobacco for the European trade markets, BUT these items only grew in the southern American States, South America, AND the Caribbean Islands! Other countries like Spain, France, England, and Italy, as well as Portugal, Sweden, Norway and Holland, ALL had a lot of gain from this trade as well!!! But the Dutch were best known as the "Slave Traders" at the time....and they would literally ship large quantities of slaves from the African "Gold Coast" to the Americas for labor to procure these items (again Rum, Molasses, Sugar, Cotton and Tobacco) and have them shipped to their distributors in all these countries or to satisfy trade agreements! IN THIS SAME TIME you have to understand there was a lot of interest in "new products" and companies like the West Indies Company and the Dutch Indies Company were also trading in the middle east where Slavery was still fairly common place and even accepted!!! They also did a lot of business with China, so the products that came from America were equally as exotic in other parts of the world as well too! And this is also the time of a lot of piracy between many of these same nations, Italy, France, England, Spain and so forth! In short the Rum Trade became a triangle across the Atlantic Ocean! The Dutch mainly from Holland, would send their empty ships to Africa, gather up newly acquired slaves and sail them across the ocean to America. Unloading and selling off the slaves in their ports in the south and the Caribbean, then loading up their ships with their products, the same items I already mentioned to head home with fully loaded! And this went on for YEARS!! And Spain had seized large amounts of gold in South America as well, only adding to the demand for the riches that the newly discovered Americas had to offer! And South America had a wealth of other products such as Coffee and Cocoa, that the "Old World" had never seen, or heard of before either! Another thing to keep in mind is that the Spice and Tea Trade into China and the Middle East with these same countries was a HUGE INDUSTRY!! And going back to WHY the Americas were discovered in the first place was because everybody was looking for a shortcut to China for that same Spice Trade to start with!!
