October 25 a shameful day in Revolutionary history
What a monstrous injustice that went against every high-minded principle the Founders espoused, and the repercussions of which may yet result in worst fears being realized. It's one thing to intellectualize that the system of liberty-based government created by the victors made the continuation of the age-old obscenity of human bondage untenable and doomed to being eradicated in under a century, and another to note that would have been small comfort to the man, woman or child brutally treated as chattel. They would hardly have been sympathetic to the rationalization that "independence" could not have been won without slave interest support for the rebellion.
