"Reasonable" rebels?

This post is a placeholder to discuss the article The reasonable rebels
authored by Eve Fairbanks , who wrote of her background:

My childhood home is just a half-hour drive from the Manassas battlefield in Virginia, and I grew up intensely fascinated by the Civil War.
I loved perusing soldiers’ diaries. During my senior year in college, I studied almost nothing but Abraham Lincoln’s speeches.
I wrote my thesis on a key Lincoln address, Civil War rhetoric was almost all I read: not just that of the 16th president but also that of his adversaries.

[Fairbanks is a 2001 high school graduate, who went on to Yale obtaining a degree in political philosophy]
