    Most of them were either farmers with small fields or craftsmen and clerks. Some where even tenant farmers which was basicaly like Diet Slavery. Imagine tilling a field for someone else and then getting to keep maybe 5% of what you made. That's tenant farming, and that's what mostly got popular after the war.

    The South was essentially attempting to defend both an outdated and abhorrent way of making money, plus the supposed right of the states' to secede. The South was very aristocratic. Most officers where rich men who owned slaves, while the average enlisted man (one of whom I portray) owned at most one or two slaves, usually none at all, and was mostly fighting under the assumption that the North, which was seen as a foreign power due to the massive cultural differences between Northern and Southern states (ie accents, mannerisms, and even architecture), had come to destroy and loot their homes. This idea was reinforced by Sherman's March to the Sea.

    They eventually allowed them small pensions but a lot of officers tried to prevent it. The whole idea that Northerners were entirely against slavery is mostly malarkey. Of course the North was against it, primarily in states where it was already abolished, but that was mostly due to those states consisting of either urban industrial sectors where it was easier and cheaper to hire an Irishman than to feed, clothe, and house a slave, or rural farming towns where slavery was deemed unnecessary because a family could handle their own fields.

    Ye Florida's surprisingly Yankee-centric from what I've heard. All that "Lincoln Great Emancipator War of Freedom" BS. The Emancipation Proclamation never covered the slave states that were not in rebellion and was almost entirely to derive the South of a free work force. A lot of Federal units wouldn't even try to free slaves, they'd actually put them into forced labour.

    Both sides did some super awful shit and I acknowledge that despite my obvious Confederate leanings

    Completely understandable lad, didn't know you had ancestors who were slaves. If you want I can actually talk about the war a bit. It's a hobby and part of that hobby is learning as much about the different quirks they never teach you about.
