2. Here's the chilling part

 

"Schulten writes that President Lincoln referred to this particular map often, using it to understand how the progress of emancipation might affect Union troops on the ground. The map even appears in the familiar Francis Bicknell Carpenter portrait First Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation of President Lincoln, visible leaning against a wall in the lower right-hand corner of the room."

It always is infuriating when apologists for the Confederacy say the war was about states rights, instead of about slavery when it was a county by county battle against slavery.
