Hello! Today I will be teaching you about the civil war. First, the civil war lasted from 1861-1865.
The civil war was a fight between northern and southern states over slavery. The northern states wanted slavery to be against the law, but southern states wanted to keep their slaves.
The northern states were industrial which means they didn't depend on the slaves to work for them while the south depended on them.
Although the south had intentions on keeping slaves, the north defeated them which led to slaves being free.
Although slaves were freed, racism didn't go away. It's 2021 and we are still affected by this.
If we can all come together, we can educate others who have been misinformed. It's not going to be easy, but sharing knowledge to others who aren't educated will help our country overcome its dark past.
