    a boring history lesson for those that forget...


    The "consititution-breaking, law-defying, negro-loving Pharisseeism of New England" had caused the war, said Samuel S. Cox. "In the name of God," cried a former governor of Illinois in December 1862, "no more bloodshed to gratify a religious fanaticism." An Ohio editor branded Lincoln a "half-witted usurper" and his Emancipation Proclamation "monstrous, impudent, and heinous...insulting to God as to man, for it declares those 'equal' whom God created unequal.

    Did such rhetoric fall within the rights of free speech and a free press? A case can be made that it stimulated desertion from the army and resistance to the war effort. Democratic newspapers that circulated among soldiers contained many editorials proclaming the illegality of an anti-slavery war. "You percieve that it is to emancipate slaves... that you are used as soldiers," declared the Dubuque Herald. "Are you, as soldiers, bound by patritoism, duty or loyalty to fight in such a cause?" Newspapers printed many alleged letters written by family members at home to soldiers in the army. "I am sorry you are engaged in this...unholy, unconstitutional and hellish war," a father supposedly wrote to his son, "which has no other purpose but to free the negroes and enslave the whites." Another letter advised an Illinois solider "to come home, if you have to desert, you will be protected- the people are so enraged that you need not be alarmed if you hear the whole of the northwest killing off the abolitionists. Such propaganda had it's intended effect. So many members of two southern Illinois regiments deserted "rather than help free the slaves" that general Grant had to disband the regiements. Soldiers from several other regiments allowed themselves to be captured so they could be paroled and sent home.
