Comment: On the one hand he did give

(See in situ)

On the one hand he did give

On the one hand he did give the bankers the finger and started printing greenbacks, on the other hand the greenbacks were going towards funding an unjust war.

IMHO the southern states had every right under the constitution to secede. They were standing for the true spirit of america and states rights. Lincoln and most northern states wanted domination by the federal govt. in DC.

Oh, and btw the civil war had very little to do with slavery. It was a strategic move by Lincoln to hurt the economy of the south.
