And your lens is clear and impartial, right? The south lost the war


simply because the industrialized part of the country was in the north. The north had all the technology. The south finished the war with the same equipment they started with while the north made technological advances such as rifled cannon barrels. The vast majority of slave labor was used by southern plantation owners. To so say the country was built on slavery is pure
PC BS. It was built on cheap labor and like every nation on this earth, those laborers were abused by substandard wages and living conditions.
