Anti-Slavery

By Tiffany Larrison
Civil War Reporter

Slavery is wrong because all men are created equal and these slaves are men not animals. We are treating these people unfairly no one deserves this type of treatment. People deserve to have the right to work for money, buy land, and raise a family in unharsh conditions. If we weren't going to treat these people fairly we shouldn't of taken them from their homelands where they belonged. Bringing them over here will only cause problems for everyone in the long run because I don't believe in inslaving them but I don't want them to be freed into america I want them to nbe sent back to their homelands. Because if they are set free they will take all of our jobs because they will work for less. This is not fair to the working man like me.
Sincerely,
David Rosewall
