    That's been brought up many times, I don't believe they've ever been able to completely debunk it.

    Boy I wouldn't. He oversaw the slaughter of over 600,000 Americans. In my book, he was the worst.
    I'm not standing up for the South, slavery was fucking as evil as you can get. But he failed miserably at working some agreeable solution out, and once the bullets started flying, he was a failure.
