I have to wonder if it was the same person who was going off on me a couple of days ago because I said Lincoln did a good thing by preserving the USA.
I didn't realize this point could be debated. I thought he was a great president. 8-/
Hey folks. I'm not going to demean Lincoln, but being from the deep south, he is less than my favorite.
FWIW- Lincoln only freed the slaves for the states in rebellion. He did not emancipate any slaves still in the Union. He was however opposed to slavery for his entire career.
I dislike him because he trashed the Constitution to go to war against the South, but that is a debate for another era.
