human slavery

    “This country [United States of America] was formed for the white, not for the black man. And looking upon African slavery from the same viewpoint held by the noble framers of our Constitution, I for one have ever considered it one of the great blessings (both for themselves and us) that God ever has bestowed upon a favored nation.” —Johnn Wilkes Booth (1838-1865)
