"Here's another lie that your teachers told you: The Civil War was about freeing the slaves and making black people equal with white people. The truth is that Lincoln wanted to maintain power over the Southern states. He didn`t give a tinker`s damn about slavery, he just wanted to keep the tax money rolling in, as well as the warm-water ports for his industrialist cronies."

Although it`s true that Lincoln didn`t really care much about freeing the slaves, turning the Civil War into a battle over slavery helped keep the British from supporting the Confederacy.

But I haven`t heard most of these "lies" before, maybe cause I`m taking an AP class?
