comment What nullified the Missouri Compromise?
This a multiple choice question that could get opinion-based answers. Nevertheless, I opted to answer it, instead of voting to close, because I also feel that it addresses an issue that was highly important in American history.

comment Name of Kingdom that was formed after marriage refusal?
@SohniMahiwal: Actually, the "Holy Cow" should be for the girl, who put him up to it, and was more loyal to him than to her own father.

comment Why did United Kingdom not keep the colonies after Napoleon's defeat?
@JonStory: The American War of independence was not a "blip" because it preceded the Napoleonic wars.

OK, I unbolded "Frenchman" and put it in scare quotes instead.

comment Why didn't battleship Bismarck have more support with it?
@DevSolar: Any ship, no matter how big, needs at least one "second" ship to protect her during her "reloading" cycle. If you've ever played games like Avalon Hill's Midway, boardgames.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/midway, you will know how even Japan's Yamato (a bigger battleship than the Bismarck), could be sunk by a very inferior air force during her reloading cycle. In fact, the whole story of Midway was how the Japanese carrier fleet was caught by 37 dive bombers during a reloading cycle, after having beaten off 45 torpedo bombers with no loss.

comment Was slavery really on the way out in the antebellum USA?
@Felix Golderg: As I remember, the per capita GDP of southern whites was the same as that of northerners. That is, the 5.5 million whites in Confederate states had one quarter of the GDP of the 22 million people in Union states. The reason was their ownership of 3.5 million black slaves. If you divide the same 1/4 of the Union GDP among 9 million people, the average "southerner" had less than 60% of the GDP of the north.
