Lets talk frankly about internal cleanliness: uber humper: I still can't believe they picked a Brit to play Lincoln.Brittan getting it's revenge for the Civil War?LOL WUT?"The United Kingdom was officially neutral throughout the American Civil War, 1861-65. Elite opinion tended to favour the Confederacy, while public opinion tended to favour the United States. Large scale trade continued in both directions with the U.S., with the Americans shipping grain to Britain while Britain sent manufactured items and munitions. Immigration continued into the U.S. British trade with the Confederacy was limited, with a little cotton going to Britain and some munitions slipped in by numerous small blockade runners. The Confederate strategy for securing independence was largely based on the hope of military intervention by Britain and France, which never happened; intervention would have meant war with the United States."
