Thanks to the union, there were piles of dead black slaves freed by the union. They were piled up high on a small island in the Mississippi with other ex-slaves living on top of them. Some sympathetic yankee wrote to Lincoln begging for help for them and described the horrible situation the Africans were in. They were dying left and right every day. (documented, and you can find it if you really want to.)
Anytime the uninformed/misinformed compare Hitler, Germany etc to the Confederate States of America they show their full blown ignorance. Hitler was a huge fan of Lincoln and patterned his war on civilians with that of Lincoln. The South never in any way did anything to compare with Hitler/Germany, but the NORTH did! Even today the hatemongers, mean, cruel people are from yankeeland and they will take your money in a minute and spend it as they will. We are all their slaves now. If the USA had stayed out of WWII Hitler/Lincoln would have won! If England had backed the South we could have halted the invasion and takeover. A backroom deal by the industrialist NE Elites and England halted their support for the South; except for some ships and ammo we purchased from them against the yankee blockade. Memphis was one of those cities on the river used to keep medicine and needed supplies from civilians and the Confederate Army; the entire people in the South, SE and SW suffered deprivation, black and white.
