actually, the war really fucked up the situation for southern blacks. after the south lost, whites associated free blacks with the humiliation of losing the war and being occupied. they made life EXTRA hard on black people cause freeing slaves was FORCED on them by the Norh.
true, slavery wasnt the only issue. states rights was a big difference in the southern & northern mindsets. although Lincoln later appears to have really cared more about the slavery issue. at least on record. anyway, the South would've abolished slavery on its own within a decade or so.
man, the whole calender is messed up. the New Year should be Mar 21 (spring equinox) to reflect actual conditions. then October which means "8th month" was made the 10th month. same for Nov and Dec. the names for the days of the week are mixed up, some based on Norse gods (Woden's day, Thor's day) others on planets.
whassup wit all dat?
