Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh, no, I was thinking more of the two well-known facts that slavery was only in the South and that slavery ended after the Civil War.

The trouble is that neither of those facts are actually true. The industrial corporations of the North were great employers of indentured labour some way into the 20th century. Mostly convict labour rather than chattel slavery, but under Jim Crow that came almost to the same thing.
