History revisionists have long insisted that the true cause of the War Between the States was the allegedly immoral system of Southern slavery. To the contrary, Dr. Dabney shows from Scripture that slavery, as practiced in the South, was not inherently wicked, as claimed by the Northern Abolitionists, but was recognized and regulated by God's Word, and that, while the wealth of New England was initially built almost exclusively from the "iniquitous traffick" of the African slave trade, the South, and Virginia in particular, was merely the unwilling recipients of the hapless Negroes who were landed on her shores in violation of first Colonial, then State law. This book will challenge everything you thought you knew about antebellum slavery.
