Never mind that Lincoln issued enough Greenbacks during the war to pay for this several times over, and further, it would NOT have laid waste all the Southern infrastructure.

That doesn't work though if the entire war was a pretext to destroy all the Southern infrastructure in the first place.

"How dare you oppose my aaaauuutthhooorrriiitttty! I'll burn your cities, murder a third of your population and steal better than half the wealth held in your lands!"

Sounds like Hitler, Stalin or Mao, doesn't it?

That's because it was.
