Ta-Nehisi Coates on John Kelly’s Version of the Civil War

Concise tweet thread, with linked sources, derailing White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s assertion that “the lack of ability to compromise led to the Civil War.” Head shaking ignorance from a former four-star Marine Corps general.

Perhaps a review of the Declaration of Causes of Seceding States would help, as well
