Over at Election Law Blog, I posted on a question at the intersection of elections and the politics of the Civil War. Since I thought readers (and contributors) of this blog might have the additional historical information I'm looking for, I thought I would cross-post here. The question is whether President Lincoln would have been politically paralyzed after 1863 but for fraud that enabled the Republican Party to retain effective control of the U.S. House. Posted

"The concluding line of this passage is obviously wrong: even had the Democrats controlled the House, they would not have had the power to cut off war funding without enacting legislation, which would have required the Senate and Lincoln to approve. "
The House originated appropriations bill would simply delete funding for the war. There is nothing the Senate or the President can do to compel funding.
Today's House GOP finally realized this when they removed Food Stamp funding from the Ag bill recently.
Thomas Fleming turns out to be wrong per the linked to article. And I'm not surprised that he can't get the Civil War correct.
Fleming turns out to be wrong in other conclusions he reaches in his books. He takes what is often reactionary positions that have long been discredited, whether discussing FDR or Andrew Jackson. Reading him is like reading in a time warp of Cold War propaganda.
Better for people to read David Potter, who has been dead since 1971, but had far more insight about the Antebellum period and the start of the Civil War. C. Vann Woodward has the rest covered as does Eric Foner.
Contrary to popular belief in which in terms of election bring about the Philippines, there isn't any like factor like a loss, for many prospects regarded them selves as winning trades Win elections online
