DEVIL’S PUNCH BOWL: The Hidden History Of The Union Army and The Civil War
Eventually the truth has a habit of coming out...
Here is another of those stories that was never taught in school and intentionally suppressed by MSM. Just when you thought you knew the bad guys, a little history is revealed to demonstrate you don’t.
The more knowledge gained about the history of slavery, and the general history of Black people, the more you will understand why our society is the way it is. Why the truth is a threat to national security? Why we are in the midst of an information war? Why Black people are needed for White America to prosper? This article is not going to answer those questions, however it will share tidbits of Black history not known to most that I hope we will build on over time as more readers share information and knowledge.
You think concentration camps started with the Nazis? Read on…
In the 1860’s, untold numbers of freed slaves were reportedly forced into American concentration camps as they made their way to freedom. They were rounded up and some were lynched, others killed, or many forced back into hard labor and subjected to torture. These contraband camps were hastily built next to Union army camps. Yes *Union* army! The same group of men who claimed to be fighting to free slaves in the name of humanity.
Did you know the Union army subjected the freed slaves to even worse than slavery? As if that could be fathomed.
Our official educators and the mainstream media have intentionally buried this story and very little detailed information is readily available on searching. This is not surprising as it casts the Union army in a new light, plus makes one re-evaluate the true motive for the Civil War instead of the fairy tale fed to our children in school.
These camps were in Natchez, Mississippi located in an area known as the Devil’s Punchbowl. Here, over 20,000 freed slaves died in this Union army concentration camp. These men, women and children not even given a proper burial. Shovels were left for the living to bury the bodies where they dropped. Can you imagine? Those bodies were buried in the camp where men, women and children lived.
Black people, overjoyed at being free at last, only to be forced into conditions worse than they had left. It was something none of them could have conceived. Thousands actually begged to return to slavery. No wonder some call this ‘The Black Holocaust’!
Obama allocated millions of dollars in reparations to Jewish survivors of The Holocaust. Will our Black people get reparations for the suffering, torture and murder inflicted upon them by White America? Affirmative action was a quasi-reparation to Blacks for years of chronic discrimination in America. Today, the mere mention of the word is a source of deep resentment among Whites that spill over into suits about reverse discrimination. And that’s another story.
Next time you are asked to choose between Republicans and Democrats, remember the Union army’s role in building concentration camps for freed slaves and the Confederate army’s role in supporting slavery. Same coin, just two different sides. Don’t we see a bit of that today in the US Government?
