  2. What they're NOT showing is the DIRT POOR W H I T E farmers, all over the South! These farmers that worked their rear ends off, to maked ends meet. ..BEFORE the Civil War.

    And the Feds did everything possible, gave everything possible to the freedmen, but NOT to the dirt farmers. These farmers still exist in the SOuth, and in Appalachia.
