Instead of wasting the ammo

to shoot at the thousands of northern protesters (1000 of which were either killed or injured) while protesting the draft, he would have just initiated a signature strike to teach them a lesson, that lesson being "don't protests against my policies."

In all honesty though, I really wished they would have taught me about the northerner protests and how many were killed by the union army in history class at my public school than finding out on my own. It makes the schools lose all credibility when they omit important facts.
