President Lincoln was told that the Confederacy demanded surrender, and food/supplies are limited. So, Lincoln was wondering do I send supplies or evacuate the fort? He chose to just send food.
Send food for the hungry men.
Jefferson was thinking do I attack the Union ships supplying the fort in Confederate territory?
I choose WAR!!!!
Lincoln's main goal at the beginning of the the Civil War was to preserve the Union. Lincoln wanted the North and the South to be whole again.
How can I make us whole again.
The emancipation proclamation was an executive order issued by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863 that freed Southern slaves.
The battle of Gettysburg was considered to be the turning point of the war. It crippled the South so badly that General Lee would never again possess sufficient forces to invade a Northern State.
Vocals critics who opposed the war, or emancipation were arrested and jailed without trials. Habeas corpus was also denied. Anything to smooth the crisis that was going on with the North and the South.
