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

In November 1864, Davis presented to the Confederate Congress a plan to employ forty thousand slaves in noncombatant military service to be followed by their emancipation. While this proposal was being considered, he dispatched Duncan F. Kenner of Louisiana to Europe on a secret mission with instructions to offer European governments a promise of emancipation of the slaves in exchange for recognition. While rejected it shows the South realized to be recognized, to trade, allow financings and investment slavery was lost.

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

Slavery was already on its way out, Davis had concluded and rightfully so the reason the South was not recognized was their policy of slavery. While many countries ended slavery with out a war, I feel the rich on both sides ensured there was war and that they could make money off of it.

But to have on the world stage the Confederacy would have been isolated and abandoned unless they ended slavery. Discussions had been started on buying out slave owners, forced enactment against slavery, even dates.

I always think about the Corwin Amendment and wonder why people argue the war was over slavery.
