I agree but I can understand how some would feel like the south was being held to a double standard when so many confederates died in US camps.
Simply, the states of the Confederacy lost the war and Lincoln had lost his life to an assassin who at the time, many thought had direct Confederate involvement. Not a good time to be on the losing team although it could have been far worse than it was.

This largely forgotten intersection of Black History and the history and memory of Civil War prisons offers a challenge to traditional narratives of the post-war commemorative era.
