Few people may know that New York City is a gigantic civil war monument to both the union and confederacy. NYC has a deep history as America's premier port and economic center. It was the capitol of the US when Washington was president, the Erie Canal connected the midwest grain belt with the world, its civil war mayor wanted to secede and NYC was the target of a rebel plot to burn the metropolis to the the ground. A former High School Social Science teacher Alan Singer discusses the continuing slave trade in NYC on the eve of civil war and the conspiracies of business and finance to profit from the sale of human beings kidnapped from the coast of Africa by pirate slavers. Now NYC fit into the slave trade and the response of education authorities to demands for a telling of the story to young people in the school system.
