I will correct my previous statement - You are correct that Lincoln was against slavery - but he did not want the blacks in this country. “he was not an admirer of the black man, did not believe blacks should be granted the rights of American citizens, and did not wish that they be a part of American society. He believed that all blacks should be removed from the United States and resettled in some other country.” Also - I didn’t state that slaves were not eventually all freed - only that the Emancipation Proclomation is not what did it. Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation actually freed no one. He did not free any slaves in areas of the country controlled by the federal government. He freed only slaves in areas in rebellion, precisely where he had no control.
