Have you ever thought what Lincoln role would have been in reconstruction. He had no problem limited the rights of Freedman in voting, owning property, schooling and was willing to give States wide girth on the issue of Freedmen in the south. Our Saintly President may not seem so saintly if he had stayed in office during those years, based on today values.

It seems. It was the radicals in congress. Who had the modern vision of equality for the Freedmen of the south. Not honest Abe...

Even with Lincoln in charge Apartheid would have come to the Freedmen anyway.
