EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO THEIR OWN OPINION BUT NOT THEIR OWN SET OF FACTS…
Speaking to Mrs. Fremont the President went on almost angrily…“the General should never have dragged the Negro into the War. It is a war for a great national object and the Negro has nothing to do with it.”
Oh really, why aren’t they teaching that in schools? (because they have an agenda).
This was spoken to Mrs. Fremont when she came to the White House to petition on behalf of her husband whom Lincoln relieved of command for emancipating slaves in his military district of Missouri.
In another meeting Mrs. Fremont countered, telling the President that he (Lincoln) neither understood the complex situation in Missouri nor that the war had to become one of emancipation TO PREVENT EUROPEAN POWERS FROM SIDING WITH THE CONFEDERACY.
It was a war for independence, just like the first one…
