Not at all. It is perfectly within the OP’s scope, which tries to make the raising of a flag of slaveholders and traitors into a good thing.
but since you did remember how prejudice Lincoln was
Let the quote wars begin, then.
I hold that he is as much entitled to these as the white man. I agree with Judge Douglas he is not my equal in many respects—certainly not in color, perhaps not in moral or intellectual endowment. But in the right to eat the bread, without leave of anybody else, which his own hand earns, he is my equal and the equal of Judge Douglas, and the equal of every living man.
That isn’t a good racial attitude for today, but its vastly better than what they had in the South, that the natural condition of the black man is slavery. Lincoln was willing to take a stand there. Jefferson Davis was willing to take a stand to keep the black man in slavery.
Furthermore, in early 1864, President Lincoln’s advisors told him there was a good chance that they might lose the election. If he was willing to back away from emancipation, though, he would cut the legs out from under McClellan and the Democrats. Abe refused.
There is a clear moral difference between a man who fought to end slavery, despite occasionally condescending and paternalistic views, and a country that built, by their own words, the very cornerstone of their society on the institution of slavery.
and that the New England States were the ones who brought Slavery to America and made it legal until the machines of the Industrial Revolution made it to expensive to take care of the Northern Slaves.
Irrelevant. The New England slave traders and slave owners were dead before the people who fought the civil war were born. The last state in the North to officially end slavery was New Jersey, in 1804.
"At the time, Abraham Lincoln himself insisted that Slavery was not the issue which motivated him first to refuse to negotiate with the Confederacy and later to invade the South. In an August 22, 1862 letter to Horace Greeley, Lincoln writes: “My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union and it is not either to save or destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave, I would do it.”
And at that time, Lincoln had already drafted the Emancipation Proclamation. He was lying to Greeley, because he had already decided that the object of the war was to end slavery, and he was merely waiting for the right time to announce it. That right time would be after a victory, so it would be easy to see it for what it was: a moral decision to change the objective of the war, which had some strategic benefits, rather than a desperate strategic gambit that had some karma points.
Aside from being a lifelong advocate of colonization—an initiative whereby all blacks would have been shipped back to Africa and Haiti—Lincoln was a separatist as well, declaring on July 17, 1858, that what “I would most desire would be the separation of the white and black races.”
There is no evidence that Lincoln was a lifelong colonization advocate, although there is evidence that he flirted with the idea. By the time of his re-election at the latest, and more likely after his meeting with Frederick Douglass, he had abandoned the idea entirely. In fact, Lincoln was advocating black suffrage when he was shot, and it was a speech he made in early 1865 on the subject of black citizenship that prompted John Wilkes Booth to take the final steps in his assassination plot.
Again, though, this is irrelevant: even if the North wasn’t trying to abolish slavery, it is clear that the South’s highest priority was preserving it. Regardless of whether or not the Union cause was good, the Southern cause was bad.
