The War of Northern Aggression
Was the Civil War fought to free the slaves?
Lincoln's letter to Horace Greeley
IS THE UNITED STATES the moral leader of the world as Americans have always believed? Have American civil rights steadily progressed over the years?
The British Empire abolished slavery in 1833. The Russian Empire abolished serfdom in 1861, the same year the American "Civil War" broke out. Neither took three-quarters of a million military deaths to free the slaves. In fact, no one was killed. The American Civil War killed that many Americans. Civilian deaths were not counted. As many as two hundred fifty thousand additional deaths in the South could possibly have resulted from disease and starvation resulting from the war and the Anaconda Plan making a million American deaths as the total count.
