Slaves Not Only Built The South, But Also Created The Wealth Of The North
HISTORY IS full of surprises. Just when you think the past is safely behind you, some inquisitive soul discovers yet a few more pieces of paper that recasts how you look at our nation's history.
Consider our country's Capitol. Next time you visit Washington, D.C., gaze up at the bronze statue perched on top of the dome. It is called ``Freedom.'' Yet few admiring visitors know that 12 slaves not only cast the statue, but also devised a method for hoisting it up to its present pinnacle. Nor do most visitors know that some 400 slaves also built the Capitol Building and the White House as well.

The legacy of slavery, which has so profoundly affected our society and culture, is still being revealed.

Historians have long known that the slave trade flourished in the nation's capital until 1865. But they knew few details about the slaves who worked in Washington, D.C.

The 'wealth of the North' has now been redistributed via all the 'free-shit' programs to the point where we are all becoming slaves of TBTB.

The really really big plantation is US.

thats debatable but tell me why you think hundreds of thousands dead is making "America rich" and dont forget the children that lost parents and the millions that got injured ie having their leg blown off.....

rich ???? see reality man

In India there are kids that make Nike trainers that get paid a bowl of rice,India isnt rich because slave labour does not make countries rich,the black slaves in the USA had to be fed ,clothed and housed all this costs money,to say its "free labour" is utter gibberish

Re: Slaves Not Only Built The South, But Also Created The Wealth Of The North
It is true that slavery did not make this nation rich. It made some individual people rich but most slave owners had trouble making ends meet.

The Founding Fathers didn't think blacks should live in the United States. They were correct and we should have listened to them. They even created a country called Liberia where the free slaves could go. The capital is Monrovia and it was named after President James Monroe. They were very wise men. They knew that blacks inherently reverted to a war lord caste type system. You see it even today in the ghettos across America. They are tribal and violent by nature. This has not changed. The Founding Fathers knew that their nature would never be able to fit in with idea a Republic and the idea of freedom. It was a European idea that our European ancestors understood but blacks would not be able to comprehend. They were 100% right. The existence of criminal gangs proves just how archaic and incapable blacks are. They cannot break free of the natural tendencies. We should not expect them to do so. The best course is to separate from blacks.

"Just when you think the past is safely behind you,"....you move FORWARD to today and you realize that there are still men, women and children enslaved right now.

Too few Americans realize that slavery is not only a thing of the past, but also a thing of our future if we keep letting it go on in this world.

And do you seriously think it was a black that drew up the plans to build all those buildings? And you don't think there was a white guy that was their supervisor telling them what to do every inch of the way?

The industrial revolution created the wealth, not the inefficient slave model. A 5 horse-power machine can do the work of 50 humans. White mans creativity N. America and Europe, so don't to insinuate yourself into the history of European societies. Not Egypt nor Europe is a product of the Negroid.

I am glad you think anyone cares in this day and age, all those slaves are dead and there masters to!

Imagine that wow a sad thing that happened before our time.

Thanks for the history though, that is cool. I actually learned something I didn't know.


I am tired of the belly aching on the subject.
Perhaps one day it will die out (hoping soon),Though a scholarly approach is always welcome.


have a nice day

This is nothing but a weak and transparent way of trying to get others to think they owe you.

We don't owe you shit. And even if we did, we've paid that debt many times over with affirmative action, quotas, welfare, food stamps and free everydamnthing.

It's high time you got off your whiny ass and learned to be productive. You sucked Detroit dry. You destroyed South Chicago, Philly and Baltimore, and now you're whining for more.

Sorry, Bitch, we ain't biting. None of us owned slaves and we're through being YOUR slave.

Slaves made 3% of Southerners rich, that' all. The other 97% never owned any slaves. My family geneology goes back to the 1820's and we have record of one ancestor who owned 1 slave and that only lasted 5 years (?). He also owned a bridge across the James river in Virginia.

Civil war deaths actually were around 600,000 the OP is correct though most deaths were due to disease.

If slaves did build the Capitol and White House then they should be commemorated I agree.

When it comes to people that Blacks celebrate why do no white abolitionists ever make the list or the Union soldiers who actually died fighting to free them? Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman get lots of ink. Just a thought anyway...
