Martyred President Abraham Lincoln was fervently making plans to send all freed slaves to the jungles of Central America once the war was over. He thought the jungles of Central America would be the best solution and conducive to the freed slaves best interest. The only thing that kept this from happening, was his assassination.
Uh, no. It was one of the solutions to the slave problem that Lincoln wrestled with, but he had abandoned any mention of it by the end of 1862.
