Thats bullshet

New Jersey for one continued with slavery until after the Civil War...wherever you got that shet ( and that is what it is) you got played..and there were other states ( called border states that had slaves as well and they were part of the North) as far as your take on the South needeing cheap labor...thats correct..but you left out the most improtant part..taxation and tariffs applied on the South made it impossible for them to survive economically without slave labor...even when new inventions that reduced manual labor was introducted the North continued to tax and tariff the South and upon the election of Lincoln the North was going to increase tariffs by 10%...and at the time 90% of the Federal Governments Revenues came from the South..

Here read some "real" history and learn something that is not revisionist history...
