Wow. I am sure your in for some interesting replies. 

I do hold Lincoln in very high regard.  I agree that he was no saint but in my opinion he did "what he had to do" as commander in chief.

He did somethings that would just not be possible today .  For example suspension of Habeas Corpus.  Could you imagine what the ACLU would have done then?

If only he had been better at selecting Generals earlier in the war.

I never read that book but i will put it on my reading list.

Mike
