And finally, Lincoln was quite willing to exercise force to accomplish his goals.. the draft, the imprisonment of members of the Maryland legislature, shutting down of newspapers, the suspension of habeus corpus, etc, etc, etc... Davis did not!

Did too.

Mark Neely's Southern Rights goes into some detail on Davis' civil rights record. It's a small book, but well worth reading. Neely found records misfiled somewhere in the depths of wherever it is they keep such stuff. They were, of course, somewhat limited, but they gave him sources for further research.
