RE: What disgusts me is finessing the fact that indeed slavery hung in the balance in this war.

Transporting people across the seas causing massive numbers of their deaths is murder. Working children, women, and men to death is murder. Killing those who seek freedom by escaping is murder.

Your comment about the possible non-continuation of slavery is shocking: do we know anything for certain about the future? Would Hitler have continued to kill Jews, gypsies, Slavs, and others he deemed sub-human, after the war, had he won? Should we have waited to find out?

I don't understand your argument at all, actually. Are you saying we should have let absolute evil continue because you have no idea how long it could last? Or are you saying slavery wasn't evil?

Perhaps you think Lee and Davis were honorable men, even though their support of slavery led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of their fellow Americans?
