    I believe that Lincoln's determination and political wisdom would have led to a more just peace.

    Johnson talked tough but could easily be sweet-talked the old Confederate elites.

    Not surprising perhaps, since he had longed to be one of them.

    Anyone who doesn't believe slavery the cause of that war is fooling themselves.  Sadly, we've still a great many fools in this country.
