More > Hollywood. “His first great work accomplished in destroying slavery and restoring the Union, there remained but two tasks on which his soul was set—to heal the bitterness of the war and remove the negro race from physical contact with the white. He summoned Bradley and put him to work on estimates for moving the negroes by ship to Africa. His prophetic soul had pierced the future and seen with remorseless logic that two such races as the Negro and Caucasian could not live side by side in a free democracy. The Radical theorists of Congress were demanding that these black men, emerging from four thousand years of slavery and savagery should receive the ballot and the right to claim the white man’s daughter in marriage. They could only pass these measures over the dead body of Abraham Lincoln."< Less
