Although it became known as

Although it became known as "The United States" after Lincoln, in fact it became The United State. All citizens, in time, became federal citizens of THE STATE, the United States. Prior to this you were a citizen of your state, and not subject to federal laws. You were under the jurisdiction of your state. Federal citizens are under the jurisdiction of the United STATE, the federal government. This was a 180 degrees in opposition to what was established in 1789, where the people were not subject to the federal government in any way.

BUT, it should be noted that it was the Radical Republicans, not Lincoln that enacted this. Lincoln was indeed a Republican, but not tied with the Radicals who in reality did not like Lincoln.

What the Radicals accomplished would not have been possible without Lincoln's war.
