What problems did secession create for the Buchanan and Lincoln administrations?
In late 1860 and early 1861, secession created numerous problems for out-going President Buchanan and in-coming President-to-be Lincoln. Buchanan took no firm or effective steps to close the widening gap between Southern states (both those that had seceded and those that were on the verge of doing so) and Northern states. Upon becoming president in March of 1861, President Lincoln did take firm steps; however, just one month later, his (and the nation's) problem became the Civil War itself, which would require four years before being resolved in the Union's favor.

Lincoln had no military or executive experience. Many of Lincoln's supporters believed he had the capacity the war would require.
