I knew he was a traitor. Wasn't he the one that started the war to declare marshal law on the south? He took British money to keep the war going? After the war, he sent troops into the south to detain and kill any who were southern sympathizers? Put standing Armies in the southern states?

The Civil War had nothing to do with slavery. The South grew cotton, vegetables, etc. Up North, the Yankees couldn't grow their own cotton or their food. It was too cold in the North.
The North had asked the South to send them supplies with instructions how to grow them. THIS is what started the Civil War. The North wanted THE SOUTH to pay for shipping to them + a Tax. THAT IS WHAT STARTED THE WAR.
