As for how those imprisoned by Lincoln remained in prison after the War and I I suspect you are eluding to, After His Death, I imagine for any number
of reasons Lincolns death did not change their sentence and each served out their time or as concession to Lincoln's memory, those in control
continued to punish his (Lincoln) and the Federalist detractors.
I must now add some that there are some undeniable parallels that are trying their damnedest to surface between President Barrack Obama and Abraham
The Presidents (Lincoln and Obama) took a sworn oath of office "to preserve, protect and defend" the Constitution of the United States; this oath is a
prerequisite and requirement before anyone can take the office as President and Commander and Chief of our Armed Forces.
1) Lincoln ordered the military blockade of Southern ports. This was an act of War, an Act that only Congress was empowered to authorize.
1a) The Obama Administration has threatened Texas With a No-Fly Zone over its entire state over the Anti-TSA Legislation Texas was going to pass.
Needless to say, the TSA is a blatant violation of various sections of our Constitution.
2) Lincoln ordered hundreds of Northern newspapers who dared to speak out against him to be shut down. And their owners and editors were arrested for
2a) The Obama administration is suffocating investigative journalism and pushing censorship of Facebook and YouTube at an alarming rate through the
abuse of the Espionage Act of 1917, an act more prone to be used to protect government secrecy than national security.
3) Lincoln ordered the arrest of Ohio Congressman Clement Vallandigham for the crime of speaking out against him.
3a) Obama has had served 14 US Governors with National Security Letters (NSLs) warning that if their actions in attempting to form what are called
State Defense Forces are not halted they will face “immediate” arrest for the crime of treason.
4) Ex parte Merryman, Lincoln suspended the Writ of Habeas Corpus.
4a) Obama signed and enacted the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which suspends all Constitutional Rights of Citizens including Habeas
5) Lincoln sent Union troops door to door in areas of Maryland, a Union state, to confiscate weapons.
5a) Even now Obama is working hard on a plan that will result in having troops and/or law enforcement enter homes of private citizens to confiscate
firearms. This is already happening under various legalized maneuvers by law enforcement and none should forget what Bush did after Hurricane
6) The Lincoln administration allowed the taking of private property for public use without just compensation or due process of law.
6a) Obama has embraced, continued and expanded upon the United Nation Goals of Agenda 21 and the use of Imminent Domain, the RICO Act, Northwest Land
Confiscation Act and now is maneuvering to sign the "Law of the Sea Treaty" which would give up US Sovereignty over its Seaways to the United Nations;
some will point out that the LOST was defeated but you may be sure Obama and those with him are preparing for their next attempt at getting it
Since dead Union soldiers were stacking up like cordwood, they started burying them in Lee's yard. There were so many Union soldiers graves here, this
was to become Arlington National Cemetery.
7) The Lincoln Administration routinely used water torture against the thousands of Union prisoners arrested and jailed without trail. This treatment
was clearly "Cruel and unusual punishment".
7a) Obama has continued the Bush Administration Policies, including but not limited to the "Torture of Prisoners" and now with the "NDAA Bill" they
can take you, torture you and kill you without trial or every even admitting they know anything about what happened to you behind the guise of
"National Security". The Criminals have legalized their criminality.
8) Lincoln was Commander-in-Chief of an Army whose invasion of the South resulted in the deaths of 50,000 Southern Civilians.
8a)While Obama has not officially declared War on the American People (yet), the DEA and AFTA have murdered innocent civilians in the pursuit of their
agendas. Meanwhile, in Iraq, Afghanistan and other Middle Eastern Countries innocent civilians have and continue to be murdered and now they are doing
it by remote control using drones.
I could in fact make a much longer list of parallels between Obama and Lincoln, and I could get into the actions of the TSA and other Government
Agencies which are both Unconstitutional, Treasonous and an utter violation of the Oath of Office take by Obama, all elected officials and Federal
Employees; I could go into what is apparent that the Obama and the Federal Government are preparing for with their TSA, Police Check Points, Gun
Grabbing and Registration efforts, Imploding of our Dollar and Run-away Spending but this is Cyber-Dust and I have ore important things to do.
