|TD, to a degree I would agree w/ you. But as a note even if Lincoln had lost by the time the new President would have taken office the CS was a broken wreck due to Shermans march through Georgia. And even if a peace deal of some sort would have been brokered in the Spring of 65... the CS didn't have a whole lot left to bargain with. The CS had been spilt numerous times, it was no longer a continuos country; it had been carved up.
The men in the field won the war, while Lincoln had the steadfastness and intestinal fortitude to keep going forward.
