I would love to see some posts using some solid sources.  I appreciate Indy's research on the percentage of slave ownership and I appreciate excellent questions like the one regarding the quote by Grant regarding offering up his sword.  I have contacted 4 authors who have used the quote to find out what the original source is.  No response yet.  But, wow,  it is all over the internet.

I like good primary sources.  Do not spout off unless you have the bibliography to support it.
