Lincoln and the Republicans' actions on slavery provide further evidence that the war was not being fought over slavery but over maintaining the Union/Southern independence.
No, they don't. They demonstrate that Lincoln and the Republicans were willing to compromise on slavery to allow it to be peacefully, but ultimately, extinguished. And it's just plain downright hypocritical that on another thread on this very forum at this very moment you're condemning Lincoln and the Republicans for NOT being willing to compromise.
