* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Stevens wants to treat the South as a conquered nation. In contrast Lincoln wants to welcome them back into the Union with open arms and be forgiving as possible.

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Stevens wants to treat the South as a conquered nation. In contrast Lincoln wants to welcome them back into the Union with open arms and be forgiving as possible. Of course, given what happened in Reconstruction, history is very much on Stevens' side on this issue.

* SoreLoser: The Confederate Peace Commission. They ''know'' they're about lose the war, but stubbornly refuse to give up their slaves, somehow thinking they keep the old South in tact.

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Despite being an anti-slavery party the House Republicans are not totally behind the amendment. The conservative faction has to be persuaded by the Blair family to support it.

*** Plus the speech was printed in national newspapers. People could have read and passed it on, copied it in letters or diaries, etc.

*** Bilbo actually gets a couple of these as just moments before in a flashback scene when a Democratic Congressman attempts to shoot him with a single shot pistol for offering him a bribe. Bilbo, having dropped his folder runs back to collect it, kicking dirt on the Congressman to delay him as he reloads, yelling "Fuck you, you son of a bitch!"

** Tony Kushner noted that this was inspired by Creator/JohnFord's ''Film/YoungMrLincoln'' which showed Lincoln's early days as a lawyer.

** Also displayed between Lincoln and Confederate Vice President Alexander Stephens. They knew each other from their time in Congress. During their brief parley for peace at the movie's end they are amicable where Stephens' fellow Confederates are rude and dismissive.

** Ulysses S. Grant's first scene shows well why his nickname was "Unconditional Surrender Grant", as he bluntly tells the Confederate delegates that their terms of truce are unreasonable that neither he nor Lincoln consider the South a sovereign nation, just armed rebels.
