CORRECTION: @ 4:09 to 4:15 I credited Lincoln with a quote, which, according to further research looks like it may have come from a Reverend James Mitchell. James Mitchell to A. Lincoln, May 18, 1862. Lincoln Collection, Vol. 76, f. 16044.; P. J. Scheips, “Lincoln … ,” The Journal of Negro History, Vol. 37, No. 4 (1952), pp. 426-427.
BUT, there are those who debate this and say that it is a quote from Lincoln.

Lincoln: Racist Instigator of the Federal War Machine
Among Lincoln’s unconstitutional acts were launching an invasion without the consent of Congress, blockading Southern ports before formally declaring war, unilaterally suspending the writ of habeas corpus, arresting and imprisoning thousands of Northern citizens without a warrant, censoring telegraph communications, confiscating private property, including firearms, effectively gutting the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, robbing, raping and burning the homes of undefended Southern civilians, not just men and women, but as Sherman would freely admit in his memoirs, children as well.
Even worshipful Lincoln biographers and historians called him a “dictator.” In his book, Constitutional Dictatorship, Clinton Rossiter devoted an entire chapter to Lincoln and calls him a “great dictator.” “Lincoln’s amazing disregard for the . . . Constitution was considered by nobody as legal,”

On March 4th 1861 Lincoln clarified his position on slavery in his first inaugural address on the East Portico of the Capital building:
“I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”
While America’s children continue to be brainwashed into believing that Lincoln was the savior of the black man, the Congressman from Illinois tells a different tale in his Fourth debate with Stephen Douglas at Charleston, Illinois, on September 18, 1858):
