Why was Protestant Slavery the Smoking Gun of Civil War?
The Civil War was the bloodiest war in American history. American Protestant slavery in the Constitution denied Blacks’ humanity and citizenship. Paul Kalra’s “From Slave To Untouchable: Lincoln’s Solution” shows how this inevitably led to Civil War and killing of 620,000 Americans.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
This is the 150th anniversary of Civil War that claimed 620,000 American lives. American Protestant slavery in the Constitution denied Blacks’ humanity and citizenship. Chief Justice Roger B. Taney opined, “The framers of the Constitution had not regarded Negroes as citizens, and the present condition of the race warranted no change in their legal status.” Why was Protestant Slavery the smoking gun of the Civil war?

- Why the Blacks could not be set free outside the citizenship tent.
- How breeding of Blacks for sale required slavery expansion into new territories.
- Why immigrants from Europe were reluctant to compete with black noncitizens.
