Your logic fails. If I say basketball is still around, even though fundamentally it differs in so many ways from what Naismith invented, is it still what HE created? No. The USC was an agreement between certain parties, none of which could force another to remain in the agreement while violating it. Lincoln refused to acknowledge this, and since then the USC has been dead. Yes, it's that simple.
