The Emancipation Proclamation? The one that freed the slaves........only in the rebellious states but let slavery continue in the 4 Union states and all areas in the South that were "Union Occupied"? That one? And you may wish to read why VA, NC, AR, and TN seceded. These are states that voted to remain in the Union even though the 7 so called "Cotton States" had already seceded. hint: it was because Abe demanded they send troops South and kill those in the 7 SOVEREIGN seceded Cotton States and kill them.

No mention of the over THREE HUNDRED NORTHERN newspapers and magazines that were shut down by Lincoln because of their anti-war editorials? That's one way to keep the American people in the dark. Some had their presses destroyed by Union troops. Or how about the over THIRTEEN THOUSAND NORTHERN CIVILIANS that were jailed for speaking out against the war? No bail, no lawyers, no charges. Just jailed. Sorry, but with today's internet, you Lincoln PC BS spin won't pass.

Why not mention how our "greatest President" asked for 75,000 men for 90 days to put down the rebellion. And how that request turned into asking for over TWO MILLION men for FOUR YEARS. Talk about blundering into a war!

I am so glad to read thru these posts and finally see that the 150 yrs of spin on Lincoln is being challenged. We can thank the internet for that.

Great Presidents like Lincoln? The spin of all spins! If Obama has spin doctors anywhere as good as "Honest Abe" he too will be among the Washingtons.
