Reply To: Lincoln and the 13th Amendment


That’s my point. DiLorenzo has been repeatedly been citing “page 554” as evidence, but doesn’t quote it or say what on that page is supposed to be this conclusive evidence that Lincoln either 1.) was not influential in passing the 13th amendment, or 2.) actually opposed its passage.

I agree with his portrayal of Lincoln as a racist who was not on a mission to end slavery, but I am not finding this argument that Lincoln somehow opposed the 13th amendment to be convincing.
