oh my my my ..........
Lincoln often expressed moral opposition to slavery in public and private.[1] Initially, he expected to bring about the eventual extinction of slavery by stopping its further expansion into any U.S. territory, and by proposing compensated emancipation (an offer Congress applied to Washington, D.C.) in his early presidency. Lincoln stood by the Republican Party platform in 1860, which stated that slavery should not be allowed to expand into any more territories. Lincoln believed that the extension of slavery in the South, Mid-west, and Western lands would inhibit "free labor on free soil". In the 1850s, Lincoln was politically attacked as an abolitionist, but he did not consider himself one; he did not call for the immediate end of slavery everywhere in the U.S. until the proposed 13th Amendment became part of his party platform for the 1864 election.[

existing states still had slaves and the secession states were being brought back to the Union by force ..........
the civil war was about secession not slavery ....no state can be a republic with in a democracy..... meaning you can not quit the Union and future states will be entered as free states .. no slavery
To a large part the war was about taxes on import goods. Slavery had little to do with the war at all. That is not what is commonly taught. Big difference between the way the North and the South look at the war of Northern Aggression :)

This might be considered a naive question, but why didn't the
immigrants get their own fingers out, as opposed to the
barbaric way in which they conducted their business.

It is to my eternal shame that the county in which I was born,
relied heavily on the Southern States for cotton. I am referring
to Lancashire. During the Civil War our mills closed due to the lack
of cotton, weavers starved..and as a result died.

Just one aspect of those times.

Hi There Lady Eleanor...
Thought I'd pop in and say HI and send you some good wishes..:o)
I hope that you are enjoying Spring... It's finally sprung here in the Valley even though we have snow predicted for tonight and tomorrow.. I hope that will be the last of it for this year... Checked my roses and they all managed to survive the Evil Polar Vortex.. My Strawberry plants made it too and I really expected them to die off... The ground was frozen for so long I can't believe they survived...
I read through the last few posts and thought I'd throw my two cents in on the topic... I am a descendant of two different tribes ( Blackfoot and Cherokee ) and while it in no way makes me happy there was indeed slavery among Native Americans.. Warring tribes often captured and sold their enemies..
http://nativeamericanhistory.about.com/od/con...
I hope that this post finds you happy and in good health... Sending You and Yours all of my best wishes for Peace, Love, Health and Happiness...((Love-n-Hugs))

Hello Dear Rose, so good to see you. Well that's wonderful that everything is coming up
roses and has survived the EVP! I have just come in from the garden, it is a mass of
colour, mostlyn yellows and blues, daffodils galore, muscari, primroses. oh and I discovered
two red primroses today, that was a nice surprise. The Astilbe have started to shoot up....
I read the link...it is so painful to read of our respective history....while we personally cannot
shoulder any blame, we just wish things had been so different.
It is a good thing that it has all come out.
On your ancestry..have you been able to trace far back?
I send all my best wishes to you ...<3
Gvgeyu!

Good day to you Sir Tally..and to your good Lady....:)

The Robin winters here...funny you should ask that as I was talking to ours
a little while ago, he is very friendly and appears to be feeding young at the
moment as he grabbed some sunflower seeds and flew off pronto.
Hope yours shows very soon.

Thanks for sharing all that, Cuz El ! Your uncle was a Dunkirk evacuee, it seems ! I'm glad he came back and recovered nicely.
Good evening/morning Kitchen-eers.
He was. But in retrospect, TMI.....lol. But as I started I will finish.
Time went on, and the daughter my uncle's ex-wife bore, became
part of the extended family, all the sons of both marriages pulled
together..not saying one big happy family, but the siblings bore
no resentment, so a happy ending in reality.

Hope this finds you well Cuz Luke...and in the 'know' about the
baby in waiting.

And they wanted secession due to the import taxes and the money going to the industrial North.

Hi Denny...just saw you here and wanted to give you a shout...:)

I have finished Season 1 of Breaking Bad, I hope to get my hands on Season 2
shortly, I am going to have to 'make do' with watching the match tonight until I
get it sorted. A big one tonight, the two Manchester teams play each other.

Anyway, has been interesting hearing different perspectives, it all arose from
Grace and myself just saying we liked John Kerry! lol

Good to have a decent debate once in a while and keep it friendly.

{{{Cuz El }}} good show; in reality, that's all that matters.:)

history for today -- 25 March

1911 The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire (pictured) in New York City killed more than 140 sweatshop workers, many of whom could not escape because the doors to the stairwells and exits had been locked.
pivotal in New York City and state labor/safety/working conditions laws

Steps had to be taken to ensure safety of defendants by sheriff and National Guard to repel mob vigilante justice (i.e., lynching)
1931 The Scottsboro Boys were arrested and charged [DW: in Alabama] with rape, leading to a legal case that eventually established legal principles in the United States that criminal defendants are entitled to effective assistance of counsel.

Excellent documentaries for each PBS American Experience

Economics was indeed fundamental to the American Civil War. The economics of the South was still based on the economics of slavery -- now THAT'S slave wages indeed.

And the real deal is that the South started the War firing on the federal Ft. Sumter; in truth, the War of Southern Aggression.

It 's all too political for me,
And I still like John Kerry,
It seems to me that no matter WHO it is that becomes
President , he/she will be disliked by some people,
It is the way of things.

El,
Good info you gave about BRYAN CRANSTON and indeed,
It is interesting about the spelling of his name,
It is usually BRIAN around here- glad to know he has some Irish blood!

Be sure to get season 2soon as you can, it gets even better as it goes
And each episode is a thriller in it's own right.

I notice thru' it that Jesse has a very cultured speaking voice
perfect diction, even for the lout he plays, then in the story,
of course, he came from decent folks.

Dog 'met' baby for 1st time, it was amusing to watch,
My son led the dog (firmly held) over near the tiny chair baby lay in,
as baby kind of woke, stretched and made little baby sounds,
Ali's ears went up- head sideways with a look of dismay which translated
' Jeezes, what the hEll is that thing' ha ha!

then she turned away in fear
towards the door- wanting to escape!

would have so loved to have read her thoughts just then,
I imagine she was thinking>

' Odd it looks like one of those humans,
But I never knew they come in that size' LOL

I wish to explain our small disagreement ,,,, the very 1st picture that the story line first shown wasn't a B-47 .....and I rarely ever go back and re-open a story a second time... so I did not repeat DID NOT realize it was corrected,,so you had my adamant disagreement......

apologize .....

I use sources that I believe...... they have some credibility

too many bloggers out there that have their opine ...
