John Perry talked about his book Myths and Realities of American Slavery: The True History of Slavery in America.

Mr. Perry argued that slavery was not as integral a part of the reason behind the Civil War as history leads people to believe. He wrote that the Confederacy went to war seeking independence while the Union fought to keep the country together.
