US President Lincoln's goals and hopes for the War, changed as military actions forced a new look for Lincoln regarding the war. In the beginning of the conflict, the weeks and months after Fort Sumter, Lincoln's belief, and thus his hope and goal, was to quickly end the Southern rebellion. He believed the Union could be reunited and the slavery issue could be settled as a united nation. As it became clear that the South was able to put together field armies that were not easily beaten, Lincoln realized his goals had to change. His belief evolved into one where he saw that only a military solution was the answer. He knew that Southern armies had to be destroyed and Southern cities captured. Yet, as he said in his second inaugural address in March, 1865, he blamed each side for the war.
