User Info Enough On Lincoln; entered at 2018-02-12 22:46:46

I had read that the Corwin amendment was passed by the republican congress and signed by Lincoln 2 days before the first shots were fired at fort sumter by the confederates thus starting the civil war. the law stated that it would be illegal to ratify any law to abolish slavery in the south. the south was handed on a silver platter a law legalizing slavery forever. mr. denninger is therefore correct that the war was fought for other reasons, most probably those he stated.
thanks and with kind regards, ab.
