This seething anger was made all the more public in his veto of the Civil Rights Bill: another piece of legislation authored by moderates with broad support within the party. In the note he attached to his veto, Johnson argued that the bill was, again, a federal overreach and an attack on the constitutional powers of states.

This was evidently the contemporary viewpoint. Later in the nineteenth century, ­especially about the time of the publication of the multi-volume Lincoln biography by his former secretaries John Nicolay and John Hay, the “debunkers,” evidently influenced by the Radical Republicans’ split with Johnson, portrayed Lincoln as neutral about the vice-presidential selection.
