No, I never said that "everyone from the South just wanted to keep their slaves
". The majority in the Confederate army were patriotic. Many also believed that slavery was alright by God, because the n.....rs were less than human.
If Forrest's slaves loved their master more than freedom, it was their choice. So do many people across the world, to this day. If you think the Negroes were better off under slavery, go tell their descendants. I'll visit you in the hospital.
