There were no responses to any of my points, my only conclusion is that you do not have a response for them, and thus agree with me. I have seen no points that have been made that would prove to me that Lincoln was anything good.
Lincoln was from Kentucky (a southern state) so what does that say about the general populace in the south?

Gosh, when I'm done with my geneaology I'm possibly going to join it!

Though you never recognised the Jim Crow laws and black codes up north did you?
What were the servicemen getting out of this? Freedom?

If you want to celebrate being a loser then fine by me.

As a result, for most black children in the north, school was no more an option than it was for those in the south."


Illinois Negro code:
The Illinois Negro Code : Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture
"Until after the War Between the States, blacks in Illinois could not vote and did not pay the poll tax; could not marry whites; could not keep or bear arms, serve on juries, or testify in court in a case involving a white. Eventually, they were forbidden even to settle in the state"

(Colonization was also the preference of both Henry Clay and Abraham Lincoln.)

What FLAG is this?Hmmmmm???

We all know that the KKK was started in the south and still has a very large stronghold in the south. I'm not sure what your trying to prove here.

Your kidding? Lost whaaaat?

1. Was Lincoln American's Caesar ?

2. Did State[s] have the right to reassume delegated authority ?

3. What is 'delegated authority' ?

4. Can a Lesser 'delegate authority' to a superior ?

Theeeeeee only topic Y'ALL understand is 'holier than thou' Yankee Marxism!!

Deo Vindice!
