I don't and can't understand all the negativity about our 16th president. I think people need to just see Lincoln as a man who with all his power sought to keep the Union preserved. And, the civil war was secondarily about "States rights", nullification, and succession...but about SLAVERY. Thank you Mr. Lincoln for taking that on, and thereby changing the USA for the better, at least in that regard!
