This conversation is very circular and nonproductive
Lets agree on following:
If there was no such thing as border states, Lincoln would have freed all the slaves in 1862.
Lincoln would probably have not allowed expansion of slavery in West.
The south seceded due to slavery and racism- if don't believe that read the secessionist papers.
There was a battle at Gettysburg and a subsequent Gettysburg address that made a connection between that battle and ending slavery.
There was a civil war that had alot to do with slavery and for goodness sake ended slavery.
And with that, Dennis
