Yes. Slavery was a dying institution.

I think the United States and the Confederate States of America would have both ceased to exist within 50 years, dissolving and being replaced by who knows what kind of entity...

The CSA Constitution (aside from the whole chattel slavery thing) is way more aligned with my political ideology so I say yes - aside form the whole slavery issue.

Depends what we you are referring to.

South would have died. Nothing economically viable about slavery unless you're selling and breeding them.

North still wouldn't have embraced slavery.

What would have become of the Southern Negro population?

You think the North would have lost the war then after slavery became untenable in the South, they would have graciously invited the Negroes up to Detroit, Newark and Gary to work in the northern factories? Or would we be 80% Black and practice apartheid? Or would we made majority Black governance work in the South?

Then we would have a board where gentlemen from LSU correctly write "If the South had won ..."

The Civil War did involve a lot of issues besides slavery, and in fact, those other issued contributed to setting the South back decades after the war. However, even if the South would have won, at some point, slavery would stop, but the question is, when? And also, if the South won, would 'free' slaves have been sent back to Africa? How would a Southern government feel about all the Northern free slaves??

The South did not have the shipping to repatriate even a small poriton of it slaves.

Lincoln put MG Butler in charge of developing a logistical plan to do this after the civil war would have freed the slaves but he reached the conclusion the north did not have the resources to do the job and they had the vessels not the south.

I suspect the lazy bastards attitude was the south deserved to be stuck with the problem as there was no thought that free blacks would inundate the north and why should the north bare the expense. Several northern states barred free blacks from their territory at the time of the civil war so there wasn't a lot of foresight about equality and integration.

Oh My! Another uneducated about this War!
My friend, the North DID embrace slavery long after that War. Slavery was alive and well in Yankee land for a long time after.

The South had the better direction - especially in hindsight today. Slavery was falling apart and would have before long. The North - South friction that took place after the War (and that still exists today) had a lot to do with race relations, thereafter.

You are an absolute MORON if you think slavery didn't exist in the North after (or before) the War.

I think you (not you personally) are an absolute moron if you think the Civil War was really about slavery.
