5 fish-

  Once again you have it exactly backwards. I repeat that seven states went out BEFORE Mr. Lincoln's so-called: "appeasement" inaugural address.

  Mr. Lincoln DID say all along that he would not allow secession. He could not have been clearer on that point and he never wavered from it. His position on that issue was already known.

  Your idea that a more threatening inaugural address by Mr. Lincoln would have frightened the seven states that had already seceded to return to the fold and intimidated the other four not to secede has no credibility whatever. It is sheer fantasy.
