The Civil War was fought for States’ Rights. Our Founding Fathers believed in strong States’ Rights and a weak Federal Government made up of three branches: Executive, Legislative and Judicial. The Federal Government was supposed to handle defense from foriegn attacks, international affairs, common road and rail standards to allow commerce, and a common currency. It could help negoiate state to state disputes. It was not supposed to butt in to the affairs of the states.
After Fat King George’s tyranny over the colonies and the defeat of the British Empire. Our citizens did not want another dictator ruling over them. They wanted their state elected officials to create the laws they lived under. The socialist agenda of ruling like a King was against the will of the people. They were independent and strong citizens.
Two Narratives of the Civil War: North: Stopping Slavery vs. South: States’ Rights and Founding Father’s view of Federal Government
North: Northern States were moving away from agriculture and into industry and manufacturing. The need for a large workforce was no longer needed. Slavery no longer was neccasary for their economy.
South: Slavery was about cheap labor for crops like Tobacco and Cotton. 1.8% of citizens owned slaves. Most of these families that owned the plantation trace their lineage back to the British Empire. The leaders of the South supported slavery and wanted to keep it. This was a small group of people, like our oligarchy today. Most of the Southern citizens did not think King Lincoln should be grabbing power over them. It was about being ruled from their State Capitols.
These Southern Aristocrats became the Democratic Party.
Would they have kept slavery, if a cheap large workforce was needed? What is the modern form of slavery: Destruction of our public schools to create an uneducated workforce? Welfare? Drugs and Crime? Prisons?
