Lincoln's consummate skill was to keep the Tax money flowing from the wealthy Southern Agricultural economy to the mainly Industrial Northern tariff ridden States.
Lincoln got killed because he learned he could print his own Greenback currency to finance the war ,rather than borrow from the bankers ,who demanded 30% interest on their loans. Dangerous knowledge still not learned in Ireland.
But anybody would have taken those steps if or when available to them. How did Lincoln get the south to send their tax dollars? If you watch all the documentary episodes of the Ken Burns series you realise the south never had a chance of victory. There is a scene when Shelby Foote reveals that when the south had exhausted their manpower the north had hardly drafted a quarter of the manpower available to them.

No mention that the slave trade in America was dominated by Jews. As was exposed in the book The Secret Relationship Between the Blacks and Jews.

The same culture that dominate ownership of banking, mainstream media and publishing and use that influence to race bait black people into hating whites.

The same culture that was responsible for 9/11 and used that media influence to blame Muslims to start a War of Terror, causing mass immigration and Jihad.

But we mustn't be anti-Semitic because that's almost anti-Satanic.

It's time to take care of the snake.

Lincoln found Slavery distasteful but he knew it was a divisive issue and like most savvy & up and coming politicians he didn't come down on either side to a degree that he was identified with one argument or the other.

However he was deeply opposed to Succession and that he was prepared to make a stand against.

He knew that Emancipation would fatally undermine the economy of the South as the Blacks were the bulk of the populations on the farms and plantations.

Once they knew the North was winning & they would be Free Men they either walked off or gave up doing anything other than the bare minimum. The Planters and Overseers knew that if they went too harsh they risked Revolt so they held off on the retribution.

Emancipation was a subtle but effective way of knocking the props from under the ability of the Confederacy feeding its population.

It should be noted that the South also had quite a number of Free Blacks - mostly through Manumission by Slave Owners of their previous charges.

The narrative put forth by historians and mainstream cultural pundits regarding the American Civil War is simplistic in it's presentation, often reading like a Grimms Brothers tale - once upon a time, there were evil white slave drivers in the Southern United States who had held the noble black man in chains, exploiting and brutalising him. One eventful day along came a man by the name of Abraham Lincoln to free these wretched souls from their sorrow and misery, faithfully leading a government which was to defeat the white Southern menace, freeing the slaves in the process with America living happily ever after forever more.

I'm sure you are familiar with the 2012 movie Lincoln, directed by Stephen Spielberg for one. In this movie, the black characters are portrayed as noble and gallant, while a decent majority of the white characters present are portrayed as being foolish, racist white male congressmen who simply wish for nothing more than to halt the advance of the glorious, yet downbeaten Coloured people from ever reaching his true and full potential in life were only he to be released from his shackles. As can be predictably expected, the 2012 movie tows the decades old line regarding the American Civil War, aka, that the wonderful and saintly Lincoln did anything and everything he could within his power to free the noble black man from the life of servitude imposed upon him by ignorant and racist whites. Such media representations can not only be written off as fanciful ahistorical theatre regarding their portrayal of the Southern Cause on one hand, they also portray an Abraham Lincoln as something he never actually was to begin with. Lincoln, who had never seemed alarmed by the issue of the continuation of slavery within the South while canvassing during the run up to the 1860 election and beforehand, had in fact also on numerous occasions made suggestions in public and during personal conversations that were black slaves in fact to be freed within the US then they should be expected to return to Africa, the land of their ancestors thereafter, most notably outposts such as Liberia on the western coast of the continent. The official court historian view that the American Civil War had been fought for a glorious and righteous cause - against a sinister white Southerner populace, continues to be promulgated within media circles and through film in particular. Dig deeper into the background of these historical events and you'll find an infinitely more muddled picture.

With all other things taken into consideration, what should obviously be noted is that the younger Abraham Lincoln, a lawyer who had moved up in the world by representing the interests of large railroad interests across the US Midwest would at a later point covertly go on to represent Northern Industrial interests which favoured Hamiltonian style tariffs on all domestic imports as future President of the United States. What's also interestingly noteworthy is the fact that the trade policies adopted and promoted by the Southern states internally during the mid-19th century favoured open and free trade policies with Europe, in particular for commodities such as cotton and tobacco, both vital to them as a society with the former much in demand by mills and industries throughout Britain and France in particular. Understandably, such an arrangement conflicted heavily with Northern industrial interests who favoured a system of domestic tarrifs in order to support domestic industry, particularly when advantageous to themselves and their vested interests - such individuals also stood to lose from the Southern approach to trade policy with it's emphasis on lax restrictions. There are indeed alternative arguments which when brought forth can understandably make the events seem more plausible and less cartoonish within a wider context of unfolding events. In setting a precedent, South Carolina had decided it had had enough of what it felt to be Lincoln's government interference and undue meddling within it's own internal state affairs by Northern Yankee vested interests with a Federalist style desire for a powerful central government supported by tariffs, an arrangement which at that point had not come of age given the early victory of Jeffersonian idealism within the young nation. South Carolina's withdrawal from the Union was soon to be followed by other Southern states feeling similiar grievances, thus going forth together to eventually establish the Confederacy and a govenment with it's own set of political and economic principles.

While slavery was and always will be a wretched institution, history may not always be what it is made out to be, moreso as it will inevitably be the victor and his supporters writing the text books for future generations of students. To this day, it has certainly cast a long shadow over American culture with Southern whites continually portrayed more often than not in the least favourable manner as foolish bigots undeserving of their own culture and traditions by association, while the myth of Abraham Lincoln, more saint than mere mortal remains as culturally prevalent as it ever has.

It's rarely mentioned that the American slave trade was dominated by Jews. The book "The Secret Relationship Between the Blacks and Jews" exposes this.

The same Jewish culture dominates banking, politics, the media, publishing and Hollywood and uses that influence to race bait black people into hating whites.

It was also Jew's who were responsible for 9/11 and they used their influence to blame Muslims, fueling a War of Terror and mass immigration to promote Jihad.

But we mustn't be anti-Semitic because that's anti-Satanic.

And to counter the canard of 'Black Disenfranchisement', Appalachian Whites, who have comparable incomes to Blacks, are nowhere near as violent.
Those same Hillbillies stayed true to their nation by forming the State of West Virginia and fighting for Uncle Sam.

The American civil war and the Irish civil war are one war. It's freedom for humanity.

To protect American freedom is to protect all other freedom's. It's micro macro.. they sneeze, we catch a cold.

The American people need our help and we have a duty to both them and ourselves.

Fourthly I dislike Daniel Day Lewis.
Fifthly I like the Lincoln Memorial building and would like it even more if the ugly statue of the ugly bollix was removed from it .

In fairness though, the Lincoln Memorial wouldn't have the same meaning or significance attached to it bereft of it's centerpiece statue.
