One of the myths of history is, "the South was
responsible for slavery in America ".
The Northern colonies of Massachusetts and Connecticut were the
first to legalize slavery. North Carolina and Georgia were the
Northern and foreign merchants were responsible
for the brutal importation of African slaves to this country, they
made millions. Not one Southern vessel imported slaves.
When the US Constitution was signed, all thirteen
states held slaves.
When Northern slave owners and Industrialists
discovered that it was cheaper to hire poor European immigrants
rather than to care for slaves, they didn't free their slaves...
they sold them to the South... and made millions again.
When some Northern states outlawed slavery, they
also passed laws forbidding them from living in the north.
So letís set the record straight, the institution
of slavery was started by the Northern States and was responsible
for the profiteering and importation of the slaves. When they had
no use for their slaves they sold their slaves and then outlawed
