How was President Lincoln able to be actively involved in the Civil War?

President Lincoln was able to control the Union forces in the US Civil War in his position as commander in chief. The fact that Lincoln was so near to the battlefield actions via telegraph placed him in position to make war operations suggestions and actual military decisions.He was also able to appoint generals who he believed shared his various goals. With that said, Lincoln had to battle his own radical wing of the Republican Party. They became an obstacle to Lincoln as the Republicans formed a joint Congressional committee to insure the waar was going the way they preferred. They had some leverage over the President. Also, the Republicans and Lincoln needed the support of the War Democrats. These were members of the Democratic Party that favored unification. Lincoln also was able to help control the Union's war efforts by using his power as president to suspend certain Bill of Rights amendments, such as habeas corpus.

Of course, some may argue that his duties can assist - or detract - from domestic tranquillity. However, as we are not currently witnessing a dozen or so states seceding and opening fire on us, we may say that President Obama is so far doing a better job than President Lincoln - in the "domestic tranquillity" department, anyway!
