Subject: RE: BS: British support for the confederacy?
Y'know, there's the potential of an alternate history story here. Had the colonies stayed with the Brits instead of seceding in '76, would the South have seceded when slavery was outlawed in the early 19th Century? Was slavery outlawed in England's other colonies when they outlawed it in the Isles?
