Did you know that over 10,000 former Confederate soldiers left the US and emigrated to Brazil because they could not tolerate losing the war over slavery??? New history to me. Fascinating.
I'm surprised they didn't go to Argentina like their Nazi buddies did a couple of generations later. Slavery was still legal in Brazil at that time, and the poor old boys couldn't operate without slave labor. Just too bad more of them didn't go down there. Also explains why their current leader is trying to be a Trump copy cat I guess. The Confederato's don't fall far from the tree!
