    with all of lincolns fiction, the more i read it seems to me that the vast majority of the people in northern states simply sought the containment (hopefully in the south) and eventual vanishing of the black race so as to allow the entrance droves of poor whites streaming in from various parts of europe. whites, whlile againt monarchies, certainly desired a strong central govt…something fought against long and hard for decades in the south and border states and the minority in the north. when before any shot was ever fired newspapers in the north were calling for the bloody and burning destruction of the south….major propaganda forces had to be at work.
