Lee regretted having fought against the USA entirely. He regretted ever having taken a military education. He deliberately stayed out of step while walking in processions. He expressed admiration for his former enemies. Reference Ken Burns' "Civil War" documentary.

Lincoln on Slavery: "I have no purpose, directly or indirectly to interfere with the institution of slavery." --- March 14, 1861 "What I would most desire would be the separation of the white and black races." --- 7-17-1858, fr. a speech delivered in Springfield, Ill. "I am not in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, or of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people." --- September 15, 1858

@nakedbison69. it wasnt just down to rascism, john didnt like loncoln untining the states and believed in the states rights which is what the civil war was faught over. the south wanted to break away from the north and govern itself and thats what the war was faught over, slavery was only a part of it. if there were no slaves at all the war would've still took place.

Lincoln's death should've come in 1861, rather than '65.

Oh yes, Honest Abe would be FIRMLY AGAINST human embryonic stem cell research. His reason: it is clearly a form of human slavery. He thought he abolished slavery. How ironic that Obama would be the one to bring slavery back into existence.

Lincoln waged total war against the South: poisoning wells; burning crops, destroying grain silos, tearing up rails, desecrating cemeteries. This is Lincoln. Admire him, extol & worship our answer to Herr Hitler.

Gen. U.S. Grant's family held slaves throughout Lincoln's War. Negro slavery was highly profitable to African kinglets & chieftains who gleefully sold their brethren into bondage.

It's not nice to use such a language, we have to explain who was Lincoln and current USA were and are really. That's the point and people will know why you hate them!
