| Plundering Christian America
Prior to 1861, the stage was being set to drive out the southern Christian American states from the union. This was not for any other reason other than commerce. The alleged civil war was a war between the southern Christian Constitutional Republic of America and the northern foreign commerce merchants (mostly British) who supported the central government and their military as an enforcement tool of their desires. This isn't much different than today.
In 1833, the public treasury had a surplus revenue of millions. By an act of the federal legislation, this surplus revenue was distributed only among the northern States and was used for public improvements. In all of history, this unequal distribution of wealth had never taken place before. The reason the federal legislature did this was based on a change in how U.S. Senators were placed in office. Rather than the People electing the Senators, the State Legislatures appointed them.
Pilfering the south to benefit the north was a way to force the south to declare secession and then take over the southern States in order to control their wealth from the federal level. Consider this; in the 1850's, Senator Thomas Hart Benton wrote
"Under Federal Legislation, the exports of the South have been the basis of the Federal revenue. Virginia, the two Carolina's, and Georgia, may be said to defray three-fourths of the annual expense of supporting the Federal Government; and of this great sum, annually furnished by them, nothing or next to nothing is returned to them, in the shape of Government expenditures. That expenditure flows in an opposite direction - it flows northwardly, in one uniform, uninterrupted, and perennial stream. This is the reason why wealth disappears from the South and rises up in the North. Federal Legislation does all this."
Now one can understand why A. Lincoln's motivation was not to totally destroy the south, but to take it over and plunder the entire southern wealth for the benefit of the federalized and foreign influenced northern states.
