.. Southern States   had   every Constitutional   right   to   go out of the Union But Lincoln said, no. Lincoln said,   this Union   can never be broken.   Now, that was a terrible responsibility for one man to take. But he took it knowing that   he would be obliged to fight   the greatest   war in human history, which he did and which he won. So he not only put the Union back together   again but he   made an entirely   different country, and all of it in his own image..

 

Gore Vidal. Lincoln

 

..   I write about the   nature of fire by the   burned hand

Note from the author:   I am taking a liberty of using the word Negro through this article when describing the events of the US Civil War.   That's how   people were called   at that time.   I have no intention to insult   or denigrate   African- Americans   in any way. Here's my logic- Negroes were property; African- Americans never   were   and never will be forever.
