Lincoln also believed (knew?) that the slaves would never fully integrate. He planned to send them all home to Liberia.

The man wasn't stupid. However he was shot in the head and the whole "re-unite them with their motherland" concept disappeared.

Sonya610,

Yes, you are correct regarding Lincoln's stance on the slaves...
But, he also brought the desire to institute the "Greenback," which "would have (didn't happen)" generated U.S. dollars internally (within the U.S.) which would have caused an imbalance in the international banking system...


The federal dollars issued by Lincoln were called U.S. Notes or Greenbacks. They allowed the North not only to win the Civil War but to create the greatest industrial giant the world had ever seen. Lincoln’s government launched the steel industry, created a continental railroad system, promoted a new era of farm machinery and cheap tools, established free higher education, provided government support to all branches of science, organized the Bureau of Mines, increased labor productivity by 50 to 75 percent. The Greenback was not the only currency used to fund these achievements; but they could not have been accomplished without it, and they could not have been accomplished on money borrowed at 30% interest.
