    Some things die far too hard. The wolves were at the door in 1865 before the CSA Congress realized [in part] that their premises on the Black Slaves was wrong and they needed their manpower to stave off the Army of the Potomac. In spite of those premises, they armed a few Slaves in the closing weeks of the war. Then the armies began to surrender.

    The CSA government never surrendered, only their armies did. Apparently, this was Mississippi’s final act of submission.

    Yep, we have been laughing about this in the office today. Friend ran up to me as soon as I came in proclaiming “I’s free! I’s free!”. We are now a bonafide, ratified, NOTIFIED non-slaveholding state.

    So is it possible we can have some closure on the slavery issue now?

    This reminds me of seeing an article about a year or so ago where Germany finally made its last reparations payment owed from World War I…

    I was thinking the Choctaw nation in Mississippi didn’t end slavery until June of 1866. According to their historic info at their casino.
