I could not agree more concerning Lincoln and his ability to adapt throughout the war. As much as I have pointed out alternatives at the onset of the war, I have always contended, at the end if the war he was the bridge for reunification between the Union and the secessionist states of the attempted Confederacy. Few leaders at that time had the ability and the power for forgiveness. The bridge was largely destroyed after that fatal bullet.
We are in complete agreement with your above post.
