    • The Civil War destroyed the institution of slavery in America and set loose the forces of industrial capitalism from the influence of the conservative South. The Union victory was as much diplomatic and political as military. The leadership of Lincoln, while on many points controversial, was decisive in maintaining the fractious unity necessary to bring Northern might to bear against the recalcitrant South. The long road to true freedom for America’s former slaves, however, had not ended; in fact, it had just begun.
