And one of the biggest problems is that no one knows real history.
The "Civil" War was never about slavery- it was about money and the stealing of the South's wealth/production by the North. PLUS the South had a right to secede- cracks me up when modern know-nothings call the South traitors.
Lincoln made it all about slavery, later in the war, so he could get abolitionists behind him and increase support. Plus his proclamation never freed the northern slaves- only the southern. Not to mention that slavery was on it's way out- even blacks were slave holders- would have ended peacefully had not the government tried to take all the wealth.
But ask anyone around you about these little details of history and they will think you're crazy.
