Subject: RE: BS: Party of Lincoln
Interersiing speculation - but only that. Speculation. Where's the evidence for any of it?

Might benefit from reading Eric Foner's Recontruction (or Forever Free a.k.a. Reconstruction Light)" & Leon Litwack's Been In The Storm So Long. Doris Kerns Goodwin's "Team of Rivals" (as well as among many other fine analyses of Lincoln's admionistration)also shows the great lengths that Lincoln went to precisely to avoid war.

Check 'em out.
