The Septics also put a whole new meaning to the word "slave". There weren't that many Africans actually that went to the US, in contrast to the hundreds of thousands who went to South America, the West Indies, etc, because the Septics established their own domestic slave industry at a comparatively early stage that was centred in Virginia. They had proper "slave farms" where they'd raise slaves and sell them, like cattle. Slaves were the main form of "currency" in the southern states, which is why they were so dead set against abolition.
This is the Bugsy that I like. Not the other 'bolshy' one.
