Independent Observation: It's really sad when a German has to give an 
American a lesson in American History. (.de is Germany right? I think so

Angelo, you have it down 100% as to the causes and such of the Civil War 
(known in many places in the south as the "War of Northern Aggression" to 
this day).

It frightens me in no small manner that Richard, who is very knowledgeable

>Nobody in the north was interested in slavery (excepted some

>Nobody in the north was interested in the war either.
