The War of Northern Aggression Analyzed from the Confederate Viewpoint

Uploaded by oddsk8r83 on Sep 25, 2000

Thesis: The world today is blinded from the truth about the "Civil War" just like they are the truth of the creation vs. evolution debate. They’re blinded in the same way as well, misleading text books. The truth is that the North, Lincoln, etc. weren’t as great as they claimed to be, and that they went to illegal measures for an unjust cause.

The public school system was used as a tool of the government and still is to skew the American mind into believing whatever it wants. For example: at the present time the school child has evolution drilled into their head as fact, even though it has already been accounted for as false. The C.S.A. (Confederate States of America) President Jefferson Davis actually predicted this. He taught that if the South lost, then the North would write it’s history. Therefore, the generations to come wouldn’t understand the Confederate call for independence (Kennedy 17).

The public school system was put into effect after the North won the war. It’s plan was to appeal with a free education, which it did. Then it used it’s captives in it’s scheme of confusing them about their parents cause. They were fed by such lies as the Confederates were prejudice slave-holders who beat black people for fun. This, of course, was very successful. Now a people who once believed in the federal government was here to help the states reach common goals, believe it’s their supreme authority.

One of the lies that has already been mentioned is that the "Civil War" is over slavery. This is one of the most dead wrong statements that one could think of. First of all, 70 to 80 percent of Southern soldiers didn’t even own slaves (Kennedy 34). People just don’t get motivated enough to give up their life over whether their neighbor is going to be able to continue having something. One soldier in the Confederate army claimed, "I declare I never met a Southern soldier who had drawn his sword to perpetuate slavery." Secondly, even for the few slaveholders in the war, C.S.A. President Jefferson Davis, their leader, predicted that all slave property "will eventually be lost" no matter what the outcome (Kennedy 35). Why would a slaveholder risk his life to keep a slave that his leader already told him he’ll lose in the future?

The next popular belief to destroy is that only white Southerners owned slaves....
