Yeah rr and shadow.  I understand the points you are making.  I can understand how those things can happen.  While on topic though, I thought it was Grant's wife that owned a slave or 2.  I do respect Jackson for never having a slave. Why is it that if Lee felt slavery was immoral as he preached, he had slaves.  This I don't understand, him being sort of morally superior in many minds.  I agree too that blacks in the North didnt have it great.  Unlike slaves, they were not guaranteed food or a roof over their heads.  At the time, slaves may have even been a necessity.  Its not the point Im trying to argue though.  I was just curious about the whole Lee paradox.  Thanks :)
