The Northern Plan Just Prior to the Civil War
Let me break it down for you here. a) To maintain and further their empire (they were already drooling over Hawaii and the Caribbean, the prospect of exterminating the Plains Indians, etc. - some even wanting to confiscate the balance of Mexico). b) To figure out a way to send black folks (in lieu of a possible emancipation) back to Africa (with Plan B simply being to keep them out of the North). And c) to raise the tariff by over 150% (to protect the rich northern industrialists, railroad hucksters, etc.) and continue to plunder the southern states.......Banning the Confederate flag? Sure, go ahead. Knock yourselves out.
