"Lincoln (February 12, 1809-April 15, 1865) was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He successfully led his country through a great constitutional, military and moral crisis -- the American Civil War -- preserving the Union, while ending slavery, and promoting economic and financial modernization."

    You might want to get the other side of this story from "The Real Lincoln" by Thomas J. DiLorenzo. Little things like Lincoln's mercantilist policies, his suspension of habeas corpus, institution of an income tax, conscription, jailing of political opponents and opposing newspapermen, and waging war on civilians. Not exactly a proponent of liberty.

  • Chris,

    We do that, too.
