It's an odd fact of American History that we focus so much on the South's ownership of slaves and so little on the North's supplying of those slaves. It's as if we want to limit the scope of the tragedy to just one region. Large portions of the North's colonial wealth came from the slave trade, yet they were the first to stand up and condemn slavery. Again though "liberal" is anachronistic and just as nonsensical in this discussion as the concept of "conservative."
