Summary Historic Papers on the Causes of the Civil War

To freedom from Great Britain came from the South A Southern General led the ragged Continentals on to victory Southern jurists and Southern statesmanship guided the councils of wisdom The genius of war pervaded her people She gave presidents cabinet officers commanders tacticians and strategists Her legislation extended the country's territory from the Atlantic to the Pacific. The first is a paper read before read before the Lexington chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1909 The woman starts off by praising the importance of the South in the history of the United States especially before the Civil War She concentrates on the social enjoyment in the South before the Civil War and how great it was Armies of negroes tilled the soil and were happy in their circumscribed sphere humanly cared for by the whites Um yeah They were happy Sure If you say so lady Sure they were happy And the men in the nice white coats will be coming to take you awayShe then describes the plantation houses and how wonderful they were and totally forgets that not all the whites in the South were that rich and had plantation houses of their own There were a lot of poor whites that were as separated from the rich as poor people are in today s world Her view of the women who ran the plantations ran along the lines of efficiency in running things but no interest in anything intellectual other than religionShe says the men who went to war did so to defend state s rights She says that the Union army carried out vandalism when they attacked the Southern mansions and it was wanton destruction that they practicedThe next article is on slavery This section is about as disgusting as I expected with her trying basically to say that the North was just as bad if not worse as the South in regards to slavery In reference to anything changing in the South she said The planter would not willingly give up his property honestly acuired His property Hello The slaves were human beings not someones property As far as honestly acuired goes that means he bought them at a slave auction where entire families could be separated forever She also brings up the tidbit that slavery is in the Bible and is not condemnedShe refers to John Brown and Harriet Beecher Stowe in the same sentence as fanatics She says that as a result of all that was going on the helpless negro was dragged from his havens of peace and comfort In relation to part of their culture the woman refers to the relic of ancient African barbarism It just gets worse In referring to the number of slaves that were Christians the woman writer says So the owners of these Christianized people were doing missionary work in saving them from the cannibalism of heathen Africa And worse The world can nowhere show human beings as care free in bondage as were the negroes of the ante bellum days The next article is on secession She claims that historically there were numerous threats of secession even by Northern states long before the Civil War Then she talks about the inauguration of Jefferson Davis Finally she talks about the after effects of the war at least acknowledging that the North entered the war with a lot of advantages over the South people factories guns etc She basically paints an idealistic view of the South and an extremely nasty vicious view of the North in relation to the warThis is without doubt the most one sided book I have ever read on the Civil War

A Southern view of the causes of the warReview of free Kindle editionA Public Domain BookPublication date May 17 2012Language EnglishASIN B00849XXYO46 pagesThe first two sections of these papers the first titled The Old South and the second Slavery present a romanticized view of the antebellum South which is no the whole picture than is UNCLE TOM S CABIN The following is from AskcomWithout being politically biased and sticking only to the facts less than 5% of whites in the south were slaveholders prior to the warAlso as slaveholders were the Cherokee Creek Choctaw Chickasaw and Seminoles holding around ten thousand Also as slaveholders were free blacks who owned slaves at a higher percentage of their population than whitesOr about 28% of white people owned slaves in the southern states Additionally 7% of all white people in southern states owned 75% of all slaves Askcom summarized a lot of data in this answer I suspect this is meant to say that 7% of slave owners owned 75% of the slaves I have seen similar figures elsewhere in the pastThe total number of white people in America North South in 1860 who were slave owners was about 31%As for free Negroes in the southern states about 10% of them owned slaves So that means that free blacks were 3 times likely to own slaves than free whites in the southern states From uoracom Most estimates are from 5 8% of white southerners owned slaves Sometimes there are higher estimates of as much as a third of white southerners owning slaves but these are derived from counting all members of slave owning families Most slave owners owned under 10 slavesOther sources give figures similar to Askcom There are some which give estimates that upwards of 30% of white southerners owned slaves with some states as high as 49% but these estimates have been criticized for inflating the figures by doing such things as counting each individual member of a slave owning household as a slave owner thus inflating the percentage of slave owners Some of these percentages come from highly politicized sources such as Jamelle Bouie of SLATE Political correctness has entered the debate leading to dueling statistics I trust earlier studies before political correctness got such a firm hold on higher educationEven using the suspect percentages the figures support neither the idealized view of the South as a land of benevolent planters and plantations nor the view of the South as a land of brutal slave owners Most Southerners were neither but were instead small landholders and farmers tenant farmers shopkeepers employees of various enterprises large and small hunters trappers fishermen ranchers riverboat and railroad men in fact anything but plantation ownersAt least in these two sections Ms Potts acknowledges the importance of slavery as an issue which led to war In fact she seems to regard it as the primary issue which caused war In the section titled Secession she does discuss the importance of other issues particularly tariffs She also notes that neither secession nor nullification were exclusive to the South New England had threatened secession on several occasions from the very beginning of the nation During the Embargo Act crises not only did New England threaten to secede but Massachusetts and Connecticut proclaimed the constitutional right of nullification This section of the paper is a pro southern but fairly reasonable account of the history and disagreements which led to secessionThe last section The Southern Confederacy emphasizes the efforts of the South to leave the Union without war There are excerpts from speeches by Southern leaders expressing the desire for peace The inauguration of Jefferson Davis is described in some detail Lastly there is an account of some of the hardships and destruction borne by the South
