Reply To: Alexhander H. Stephens racist "Cornerstone Speech""


Slavery was a very healthy institution, both economically and politically, in 1860. It is very unlikely that it would have ended anytime soon, if even by now, in case the Union had not decided first to make war on the CSA to prevent secession, and second to free the slaves. This to my mind is a separate issue from the constitutionality of secession.
