Much like reading your posts, along with that pathetic signature of yours
Actually the sig does have an arguable point. There is a substantial, and I would say, growing minority, mostly libertarians, who think that Lincoln was not the grand hero that we are taught in school. For starters, he suspended Habeus Corpus, despite believing he had no legal right to do so. It is apparent that he himself believed that the states had a right to secede. And various of his acts were the first step toward the diminution of the importance and sovereignty of the individual states, including instituting the first federal income tax. Others than myself could argue this point, I'm really not up on the details.
I don't agree with that position. For myself, I feel that, like all humans, Lincoln had his good and bad aspects. I do regret that this was the period when the Northern banking and financial establishment essentially took control of the direction of the nation. While it was being misused at the time, the concept of States' Rights is an important one, that has been continuously whittled away until today when the Commerce Clause is used to basically get federal priority over everything including what crops I can grow or not grow (if I had a farm) and whether I wear a seatbelt and how fast I can drive.
There is yet another point of view. I once read a book called "The Lincoln Conspiracy", which asserted that the assassination (originally planned as a kidnap and impeachment) was planned by a cabal lead by Edwin M. Stanton to prevent what they saw as overly liberal plans for the reconstruction period. This is probably closer to fiction than fact, but it was fascinating to read.
