kinda sad the next will be the last, I'd love to see how reconstruction goesHey it's very nice to have you back hopefully you don't somehow silence the thread again lol. This is actually the penultimate chapter. Do you have any thoughts for the last one?
Frankly it's weird to see Americans venerate the Constitution so much, especially when many of its framers never thought of it as a perfect unchangeable document. Especially when I come from a country with, like, 30 constitutions lol.
It is disturbing to see political repression legitimized and cults of personality entrenched. We may cheer because it's all on the side of the Union against slaveholders and their advocates, but if this becomes enduring it could spell trouble when "the enemies of the nation" are striking workers or syndical leaders.
IOTL Lovejoy died earlier and he never saw the end of the war or the amendment ;(
