Group Description

Whether you love Abraham Lincoln or do not, the love he inspired in those who knew him approached reverence. He was a brilliant politician, mystic, poet, writer of beautiful letters, a master storyteller, a man of lightning wit, a humorist, a fountain of compassion for all, but especially the poor, the suffering, the unjustly treated.

Pacifists, some slavery abolitionists,, opponents of wartime execution, libertarians who hate the draft might feel there
was a better way than war. The US government purchase of slaves to free them was one of many suggestions. Estimates of deaths and numbers of enlisted vary. Many cite 620,000 deaths
in the war from 2.75 million Union soldiers and an estimated 1 million
Confederate soldiers.

Animal protectors are sickened by the deaths of
perhaps 1 million horses in the war.
