  1. That is not what the history books back then said. The North was not against slavery from a moral standpoint. They were jealous of the billion-dollar cotton industry brought on by the invention of the cotton gin and they wanted in on it. Their factories were struggling financially and protest from workers. They also wanted to put railroads through the southern states and the south refused. Remember Lincoln told opposing states that if they joined they could keep their slaves(employees). Read the book "History of the United States" by J.C. Ridpath that was published in 1876. (A primary source)

  2. Im taking a united state history course soon! This gave me plenty of motivation and interest to be able to articulate all you have said on my own. I looked up information as you talked about time periods and found it a fun learning experience. Thanks for making this!

  3. love the video and really appreciate the effort put into covering so much. just a little thing that bothered me: the emancipation proclamation only proclaimed freedom for slaves who were part of the Confederate states, so states like Missouri were left alone
