President Lincoln has been all but deified in America, with a god-like giant statue at a Parthenon-like memorial in Washington. Generations of school children have been indoctrinated with the story that “Honest Abe” Lincoln is a national hero who saved the Union and fought a noble war to end slavery, and that the “evil” Southern states seceded from the Union to protect slavery.

All his life, Thomas Jackson, the American Civil War Confederate General, wrestled with the moral dilemma that slavery posed. As his wife, Anna, wrote "before the war, 'Stonewall' had preferred that the negroes should go free".
