    Lincoln states that he had to leave his native Kentucky because he could not stomach seeing people being treated as slaves. But the common Kentuckian was not racist, and they still aren't today. As witnessed in this video...

    well it sure was! learn something new every day.

    Maryland,[1] Missouri,[2] Tennessee,[3] the new state of West Virginia,[4] and the District of Columbia prohibited slavery before the Civil War ended. However, in Delaware,[5] New Jersey, and Kentucky,[6] and most of the Confederate States, slavery continued to be legal until the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution abolished slavery throughout the United States in December 1865, ending the distinction. Ratification of the 13th Amendment was a condition of the return of local rule to those states that had declared their secession.
