You tell me, are you under some stupid illusion that there's no such thing as manual labor today in 2013, much less in, say, 1900?
There was certainly manual labor after the war, too. Thanks to Jim Crow laws, blacks could be rounded up and jailed for the slightest offense, then sent back to work the same land as prisoners that they had as slaves. Yaaay freedom!

And the absolute, underlying support for slavery was Southern reliance upon it as the cornerstone of their agrarian economy. Take that away and things change. How much or how quickly we'll never know.

The thing that pisses me off about people like you is that all you think about is FREEING THE SLAVES FREEDOM FREEDOM but you don't give a single **** about the hundreds of thousands who died doing it, or the hundreds of thousands more who were physically and emotionally damaged for life. I wonder if the dead would have thought it was worth waiting out technology?
