Re: “If the Confederacy had won, slavery would have continued in the South

"When the CSA was formed, the profits for slaves were at its highest."

Proof of some sort please. Slavery was already on its way out. The majority of Southerners didn't even own slaves, which makes your above comment pretty flawed if profits were *that* high.

"Furthermore, slavery was the economic backbone of its economy; hence, it would be pointless to abolish slavery any time soon."

Your point is? Technology was already improving agricultural efficiency. Come the next few years, it would have been more of a liability to house, feed and maintain slaves, than it would be to work a steam engine -- or even gas-powered -- tractor, concubine, etc. that could get work done faster.

"What, do you honestly believe that white planners would've went to the fields and picked their own cotton??!!"

You find that hard to believe, why? You realize that there were Southern plantation owners who did not own slaves, right?

"...there has been confirmed evidence that the South had ideas for expanding into S.America and cutting into the slave markets there."

Evidence, please. This seems especially flawed considering slavery was dying out in the South.

"In closing, for those that persist that the Civil War was not about slavery, I strongly urge that you read the declarations of Succession for the 11 states that left the union with particular attention to SOUTH CAROLINA (especially), GEORGIA, TEXAS, AND MISSISSIPPI."

Slavery was *a* factor in the Civil War, not the main factor. And don't act as if the North was in the right in all of this. If you really read every single comment above, then there's enough evidence to show my point.

Bottom line is that secession from the Union was mainly due to the over centralization of the federal government by the North. The North controlled the government and were being completely unfair to the South economically and politically.

"Many people instead of addressing the issue want to put forth their own agenda..."

lol Like you're doing now?
