Insightful thread. The American education system's failure to fully convey the importance of institutional white supremacy in American history is one of its greatest flaws
The Union should have permanently solidified the American Civil War as "The Slave-owners' Rebellion" in popular memory, but they ceded the historiography to the former Southern rebels & their Lost Cause sympathizers
After defeating Nazi Germany, the allies executed a campaign to de-Nazify both the political & economic systems in Germany. The Union's failure to do likewise after defeating the slave owners & fully implement Reconstruction is one of the greatest political failures in US history
