10. I was watching "Lincoln Divided we stand"

If I get the history right Lincoln used the act of freeing the slaves to block England from assisting the South. Too many abolitionists in the UK.. Lincoln even tossed around the idea of starting satellite countries that were populated by previous slaves. Back to Africa or somewhere in South America. He used it as a political tool and a war strategy. He needed bodies to go to war and once freed the previous slaves could now fight for the Union...
Interesting show if the facts are correct. YMMV
