Nicole Hannah Jones of Project 1619 Ifame In the News of Claim North Did Not Fight Civil War to End Slavery

 Nicole Hannah Jones of Project 1619 is in the news to idiotically proclaim

That the North did not fight the Civil War to end slavery only the Union to retain

Ignores the fact that to have a Union of free states growing by leaps and bounds

No way could it continue to have a decreasing percentage of slave states' population still around

Had not the South been so foolish given the industrialization of the North to on Fort Sumpter fire

Only a question of time before slavery by legislative fiat or aping John Browns would have been retired

The plantation owners who were the minority when most whites owned none or only a few slaves

Pulled off the great con job of all time to convince poor whites that state’s rights must be saved

Lincoln would have known after the commencement of the Civil War

And casualties on both sides began to soar

That the South’s biggest fear would be that the blacks would rebel

Facing the Union on all sides and blacks inside would be its death knell

The North began arming blacks into its armies and navy until they constituted ten percent

Freeing the slaves in occupied Southern states would mean more blacks to the front sent

She may be right not in the beginning but after the Emancipation Proclamation freeing the slaves was a major goal

As growing casualties on both sides were taking their toll

Fortunately for the North the South fought with half its male population not armed

Freeing blacks who served in Confederacy too much risk of harm
