Response to Botany (Original post)

3. Yes, it occurred to me that Jackson might have "prevented the civil war" by keeping slavery intact

and maybe that was the dog whistle that went over some people's heads at first because normal people consider the end of slavery a good thing and so would have completely missed that sub context.


on edit: the above is horrible run on sentence and I am fully blaming Trump for lowering grammar standards. I apologize!
