Real simple-
I think that had a lesser man than Lincoln been President  -  Buchanan in a 
second term for example, yes, a good chance the North  would let the South 
"go in peace".

Esteemed  GDG Member Contributes:
I have long been bothered by the belief that anyone  who maintains that the 
South's defeat was inevitable as long as the Union  retained the will to 
fight is a  "Lost Causer!"

I think this is an  utterly realistic assessment of the 'correlation of 
forces' and a great  example of why the South was nuts to risk war.

What am I not  getting?

Which is about  as far south as one can  get
