OTC, that seems like such a stretch, since blacks did not have rights or property during the slave period, and it was based on blacks being an inferior race. I have no issue with you as a person so don't take this is a critique on you. I am not disputing the article you posted if it is indeed true, but that certainly doesn't mean the field was level. Black people were't even allowed to own land or aquire wealth, and it was the wealthy landowners who had slaves. Even the slaves who fought in the Civil War did not do so on an equal plain, it was because they were made to do so by their masters so that fewer lives of "importance" were lost, and they weren't even allowed to really have weapons because of the belief that they would revolt. Most of them had to stay and continue to work and be slaves while the soldiers were at war. Historically, it just doesn't make sense.

That isn't true, Free blacks could own land enter into contracts and even sue whites.......

Blacks that fought on the side of the south fought in most cases on equal footing with the white soldiers, while the ones that fought for the north were segregated into different units.....

Tell me this, if I owned you and I gave you a gun and ammunition what would be the first thing you would do with it, shoot at the people trying to free you or shoot at the person keeping you as a slave? That argument defies logic, lets arm the people we are trying to oppress and get them to fight against the people trying to free them....

Don't believe me look it up, read some of the other listed references......

Those are things that are not taught to people in the government run schools, like I said earlier to the victors go the spoils and the ability to write the history.......

The last two lines of that article are the most importan:

"In time, within a relatively short time, the obsolete and economically nonviable institution of slavery would have disappeared. The nation would have been spared awesome traumas from which it would never fully recover."
