I'm glad he saved the Union and all but he pretty much fricked the south after the war. That's a big reason for most of the resentment.

If I'm not mistaken Lincoln actually wanted to bring the South back into the Union on friendlier terms. He wasn't for the harsh Reconstruction policy the Radical Republicans laid on the South. I believe Booth did a great disservice to the South by killing Lincoln.

And yes, Lincoln chose to use force to bring the South back in and it is because of that force that the Union stands today.

frick saving the union. They were fricking us and they know it. Between them not wanting to put factories down here and not expanding the rail road through the south to the west. Long live the south.
