In the words of Confederate Vice President Alexander Stephens, here is why they did it
(The Confederacy's) foundations are laid, its corner-stone rests, upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery—sub-ordination to the superior race—is his natural and normal condition. This, our new government, is the first, in the history of the world, based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth.
Good riddance to them.
