Started reading O’Reilly”s Legends & Lies The Civil War. He left out the word “Omissions”.
In the first 8 pages the author left out the fact that the underground railroad took people to Canada, not the north. Northerners didn’t want blacks around! He left out what happened after the north abolished slavery. They didn’t free them. They were SOLD. He left out laws in northern states that penalized people who brought blacks into their communities. No where is it mentioned that most abolitionists wanted slaves sent to Africa to prevent mixing of the races, and they certainly didn’t want them competing for jobs. Again, the north comes off as this benevolent, saintly force for good, when nothing could be further from the truth.
