Lincoln on popularity
  • "If I were to try to read, much less answer, all
    the attacks made on me, this shop might as well
    be closed for any other business. I do the very
    best I know how - the very best I can and I mean
    to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings
    me out all right, what's said against me won't
    amount to anything. If the end brings me out
    wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make
    no difference."

13
Making War

    opposed to economic sanctions and blockade

Big National Government

  • National banking system
  • Internal improvements (transcontinental RR)
  • Homestead Act of 1862- 160 acres of public land
    in the west to heads of families (improve it for
    5 years)

17
Socialist?
  • A few men own capital, and with that avoid labor
    themselves, and, with their capital, hire or buy
    another few to labor for them.
  • Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital.
    Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could
    never have existed if labor had not first
    existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and
    deserves much the higher consideration.

18
Passive abolitionist
  • "Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not
    for themselves and, under a just God, can not
    long retain it."

19
Emancipation Proclamation
  • "That on the first day of January, in the year of
    our Lord one thousand eight hundred and
    sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within
    any State or designated part of a State, the
    people whereof shall then be in rebellion against
    the United States, shall be then, thenceforward,
