What the Civil War Was Really All About

This one was just too good to pass up.  Chuck Baldwin lays out an airtight case as to why the so-called “Civil War” was not about slavery, but an brutal war of aggression by a man who was more of a tyrant than an emancipator (Abraham Lincoln).  This is history you won’t get from mainstream media or schools of television programming, because the facts presented don’t fit in with the agenda that is being driven down our throats.

My only quarrel with this article is a very minor one, but I think it is worth pointing out that Mr. Baldwin is almost certainly in error as to why the Confederate armies did not pursue and capture Washington after the First Battle of Bull Run (Manassas).  This decision, or error, was based on calculations about the inexperience and exhaustion of the troops, not out of an altruistic desire not to wage aggressive war.  That is an easily excusable mistake, however, and the rest of the article greatly deserves to be read and lodged in our memories.  It is a perfect companion piece to the Buchanan column I linked to the other day.
