You really need to check the facts, lady. As I have said before, my middle name is Lincoln, a name I once defended with great pride until I found inconsistencies that forced me to seek the truth. I am a dedicated Christian and NEVER deliberately lie. It was with great embarrassment that I was forced to admit that my information about Lincoln was all wrong. Lincoln had the Union army poison the drinking water of many released southern soldiers after the war and had others mowed down with Gatling guns. Many southern boys who stayed home to take care of families were put on public display and assassinated as examples. Lincoln's wife wanted all southerners to be "driven into the sea." And yes, Karl Marx congratulated Lincoln.
