Um, protectionism had to do with tariffs and trade restrictions to make domestically-produced goods more competitive with foreign (primarily European) imports, and it went on long before the Confederacy and the war came into existence. Like other Northern Republicans, Lincoln would have advocated such an economic policy because it was politically advantageous to do so.

Wow. This... wow. What are they teaching you in the schools down there?

Lincoln's economic plan is well known. It entailed the temporary nationalization of industries related to the war effort (once more, to ensure that they did not supply the Confederacy with weapons or ammunition and to ensure the Federal government's monopoly over the same), along with plans to restructure the Southern economy towards an industrial focus, eventually integrating the Freedmen into the free-market structure.

On the whole, this is a remarkably non-statist economic platform for the time; in comparison, Brazil's conservatives completely nationalized all industries during its own civil war.

See above. It's becoming increasingly apparent that you have no real knowledge of the issues involved whatsoever.

Uh, no. Lincoln received Southern emissaries prior to the Battle of Fort Sumter; he quite simply refused to recognize their independence, and justifiably so. Therefore the Southerners launched a war of aggression against the North.  

*snip socialist revanchism*

I bet he went to school in my state, CA. My US history AP teacher made us write an essay about the Great Triumvirate. I was absent. When I made up the assignment, I wrote about Webster, Clay and Calhoun. She had told all of the other students that the Great Triumvirate were the three branches of the federal government! She actually tried to fail my essay because she didn't know that was what the Triumvirate actually was!

That was one of many mistakes she made, significant ones. Keep in mind, AP teacher. Imagine the lower level classes......

CA is screwed up. All propaganda in these schools.
