Reader's View: Slavery question goes unanswered

Reader's View.jpg

I read with great interest the two opposing viewpoints about the display of the Confederate flag in Duluth on the July 29 Opinion page. (The “Local View” columns were headlined, “ What’s un-American isn’t always clear ” and, “ Protesters' sentiments not universally held .”)

I have one question I would like to have answered by the people who hoped the South would have won the Civil War and established the C.S.A., or Confederate States of America, as an independent nation on our southern border: How long would this new nation have kept the institution of slavery? One year? Ten years? A hundred years? I have found that no one wants to give me an answer to this.
