    Southern slaveholders were outraged when in 1860 the Republican Party nominated Abraham Lincoln as its presidential candidate in 1860. They looked to the Democratic Party to defend its interests but when it met in Charleston in April, 1860, it selected, Stephen A. Douglas. Unhappy with this decision, Southern delegates decided to hold another convention in Baltimore in June, where they selected John Breckenridge of Kentucky to fight the election. The situation was further complicated by the formation of the Constitutional Union Party and the nomination of John Bell of Tennessee as its presidential candidate.

    So, its not okay to leave out Slavery but its okay to stop mentioning Jihad and including Muslims in regards to terrorism. That surprises me. Did you know that the Koran states that Muslims are supposed to either convert or kill Christians? But we being the tolerant nation that we are let Muslims practice freely in our country. The Koran also tells that when there are enough to rise up and inject themselves into the polital environment to start allowing Muslim practices such as raping babies and stoning women that are raped. Yes, lets end up like France or other European nations.
