I think @Xonos_Darkgrate1 is rubbing off on me.....
I was doing literature today, and answering questions about "Uncle Tom's Cabin."
This is what I wrote as an answer to a question.
"Mr. Wilson could have said that because George was an American citizen, he should be subject to America's laws. However, his statement would be instantly defeated, as slaves were not considered citizens, and so were not Americans. So I rest my case."
Either that or I've been reading too much....which is impossible.
