Kentucky sided w/ the Union. There were more soldiers fighting for the Union side. Same w/ the German immigrants. So both Kentuckians, and the new German-Kentuckians, both, mostly fought for the Union. There was a strand of racist Confederates here, like John Hunt Morgan, or that Bowling Green Confederate Constitution writer, or others, and they hated Lincoln's marshall law, but it was over slavery. John Hunt Morgan was a Freemason, and loved the institution of slavery. 5 of the 6 reasons Beriah Maggofin tried to unite the North and South, was over issues of slavery. South Carolina seceded over slavery. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Hunt_Morgan And Kentucky was a part of the winning side, but don't ask anybody in Kentucky. They still racist, and pretending like the South will rise again. The South will rise again, but not because of the whites. Most blacks in America live in the South. It's time the South got Dirty, like Simon Girty.

The North would have never went to war to free the slaves because they could have never raised a white army to do that. Only 6% of the South owned slaves and they could have never raised a white army to keep the slaves. The North went to war to bring the South back into the Union. Slavery didn't become an issue in the Civil War until two years after the Civil War began. I have a History Degree and have studied much about the Civil War. I would reccomend you read a book by historian Kennith M. Stampp "And The War Came" about the great senatorial debate of 1824. You will find the real reason of the Civil War. Don't misunderstand me, SLAVERY was wrong and a blemish on this country. however it was not the reason for the Civil War.
Thank you for stating the facts. Slavery was NOT the reason for the Civil War.

Slavery WAS the reason for the Civil War. They say State's Rights, but it was State's Rights for Slavery. Beriah Maggofin, Governor of Kentucky, wanted slavery, and that's why he fought against Lincoln... same with South Carolina, the first state to secede.

Also, since you signed in "General Nathan Bedford Forrest" as you're user name, I'm pretty sure, you're a rabid racist pig too.

The Emancipation Proclamation didn't happen until over a year and a half after the war started. It ONLY freed slaves in Confederate states that Lincoln at the time had no jurisdiction over. It did nothing to free slaves in the states of Kentucky, Missouri and Maryland. Maryland was union. I would say Kentucky was Union because it was not covered by the Emancipation Proclamation.

go dig deeper in history...for you do not know, little man. You assume a lot, don't you? It matters not what name I post, that has nothing to do with history nor the facts thereof. Racist? What did I say that was racist? You are wronglt arguing that slavery began the Civil War and I say you are wrong.

My favorite part about your stupidity, is that you're a racist, and you know it, but didn't type out any facts. So what ? Believe you... or else, get an ahole ? Hum... When white supremacists tell you Civil War wasn't about slavery, know that they are stoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooopid beyond all recognition. Stupid for hating folks b/c of the color of their skin, and stupid b/c they rewrite history to their own liking... EVEN knowing, how huge of a racist they really r.

Are you in love with the white supremicists? I NEVER ONCE mentioned them. You, on the other hand keep spouting all this erroneous bull. Show you facts? Stop listening to the NAACP and READ history. You can use a computer for this nonsense, look it up. Stop war mongering, stop race baiting, and do something else with your life besides practice reverse discrimination and keep playing race cards. And stop assuming everyone is a racist.

Also, u dont state any evidence b/c you dont have any. U r a racist, and so u look at history w/ ur racist lens. The Civil War was over slavery. Period. Beriah Maggofin was Governor of Kentucky when Civil War happened, and he wanted slavery so bad, he fought Lincoln about it. How is that not about slavery ? Do u have any facts to contradict that, or just more hatred? I do know that about yall... if other whites dont hate blacks they way you do, then that makes me a "NNNNNN-lover", in your eyes. That ball of hatred will consume you, and everybody else around you.

Why are you so scared of the black man ?

Yee f'ing ha! YOU make whites look like racists..you spout off against your own race...calling EVERY white a racist. Where does it say all whites bask with supremicists? Whites that do , that's their business. You probably bask with the Black Panthers. Don't clean my yard before you clean yours. I'm still laughing...

Stop twisting what I say into what your mind is hellbent on saying. I have not used racial epithets not once. For the last time, get off your behind and look up the cause of the onset of the Civil War. Sure as hell was not slavery. That's your tool for "Justifying" poor me.

I'm not white. Not literally, nor figuratively. Paleskin hasn't done me any good. I'm still working class. And I'd say my skin is more of a Peach color... or yellowish... maybe pink? I conclude Peach, so yeah, I support all "white" folks who see their skin color as Peach.
