RE: Mr. Lee
Interesting thread.

Lee would have made a better President of the United States than Abraham Lincoln. Lee was the Great Emancipator, and Northern Abolitionist were BAD people (and the cause of the Civil War). Slavery was eventually going to end in due time, maybe 5, 10, 15, 20 years later so why not come up with a long range plan. Why the rush? I think those who happened to be part enslaved race at the time would have disagreed with that philosophy.


I found this great website Smile that had several of Abraham Lincoln quotes on slavery, This is my favorite:

"Whenever I hear any one arguing for slavery I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally." The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln edited by Roy P. Basler, Volume VIII, "Speech to One Hundred Fortieth Indiana Regiment" (March 17, 1865), p. 361.
