The Confederacy and Slavery
As if anyone needed to bring the Civil War up again, but, if you don't believe the South and Slavery were inextricably intertwined, just take a peak at the first official act of the Confederate Congress...
Resolved, First. That this convention do appoint a commission to proceed to each of the slaveholding States that may assemble in convention, for the purpose of laying our ordinance of secession before the same and respectfully inviting their cooperation in the formation of a southern confederacy
(italics in original, emphasis mine) Non-slaveholders will not be invited..
