"From Slave to Untouchable: Lincoln’s Solution" challenges the assumption that the Civil War was fought to end black slavery. Author Paul Kalra presents a convincing argument that by far the bloodiest war the U.S. has waged could have been avoided had slaveholders adopted the Catholic slave code, which recognized the humanity of slaves.
