Ya know something, I am a Southerner... and there is a part of me that wishes we had won the Civil War. But, as hard as it is for me to do this, I am going to defend Lincoln.

A good book and well researched is "The Real Lincoln" by Thomas De Lorenzo I believe. Lincoln is the father of our corporate democracy/oligarchy and destroyer of the republic. He had no authority to force the south to stay in the Union. It had nothing to do with slavery that was just an expedient excuse he used. The emancipation proclamation only applied to the states that seceded not to the northern states.
He reconvened congress without authority to declare war and shut down newspapers and arrested thier owners for sedition etc. The man was a tyrant working for his corporate handlers pure and simple. every other country in the world ended slavery peacefully there was no need to kill 600,000 Americans to do it.
