Could you help me answer this Question in detail for my History class
"Men are not 'born
entitled to equal rights'! ... Some were born with saddles on their backs, and others booted and spurred to ride them -- and the riding does them good." George Fitzhugh, one of slavery's defenders, said this. Taking American history from 1820 or so to 1877, how far or how little truth was there in his larger points, that equality of rights and of condition weren't the American way, and that one set dominating others was the way America became great, prosperous, and for those on top, free?
