In Response To: Re: Negroes as Confederate Soldiers ()
Again Sharon your posting is on point. What most frustrates me about these postings is the total disregard of the inhumane treatment and enslavement of the Negro. To imply that it was better to have served a South where you were enslaved and had no rights what so ever than to serve the north where clearly one must admit that for the most part those that were free were not equal is a galactically stupid notion. Northern Blacks could at least petition for equally with out fear of being “lynch”, beaten, and maimed. Not so in the South.
It is suggested that, we read the congressional records…I suggest that one read the history of Slavery in America…and look into the mirror and ask yourself, which makes more sense, die a slave or live to fight for equality.
