All true, but he and most Yankees made it pretty clear early on that abolishing slavery was something that was going to happen and that they were going to impose their will on the south, by force if that's what it took. And yes unfair taxation of the southern states and similar methods of domination of the south by the northern states was a big part of the issue from the very outset.Well,there were a lot of causes for the "War of Northern Aggression" (mostly unfair taxation of the South IIRC). Slavery was brought up somewhat late- the Emancipation Proclamation was signed a year and a half into the war.
Remember this quote from Lincoln: "My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that."
Like the meme though. :lol:
I'm into dial up myself.I might be rusty on my history, but if my teachings' are anywhere near factual, I believe President Lincoln (even during his campaign) were Samsung/Android believers...the South were I-Phone fanatics. It's no wonder they squared off into a 'Civil War' and I hope we don't see it happen again!
Of course it's "racist" to the Left because it represents a fact! Despite what reality dictates the Liberals want to swap out fact for fiction....... but what else is new!?
