This question could be about more than one insurrection when Abraham Lincoln was the US president. For the purposes of ruling out the rebellion of the Confederacy, one New York City insurrection, the largest in US history happened in New York City in July of 1863. There rioters ran wild against the Federals that came to the city to draft new soldiers. Thousands of people protested the Union's draft laws, for multiple reasons. It was a riot that forced Lincoln to send troops from Gettysburg with cannons to end the riots. Many free Blacks were murdered by the rioters.

What was Lincoln's reaction to the seven states that seceded?

Abraham Lincoln's reaction to the seven states that seceded was one of resolute determination to preserve the Union and the Constitution. He refused to recognize the Confederacy, arguing that the seceding states had no right to do so, and he called for 75,000 volunteers to put down the rebellion. He also called for a special session of Congress in order to restore the Union and prevent any further seceding. Furthermore, he issued a Proclamation of Blockade against the Southern states and declared their ports closed. He also declared a state of insurrection, which enabled him to suspend the writ of habeas corpus and take whatever measures were necessary. In order to ensure that the Union remained intact, Lincoln employed a variety of strategies which included: Refusing to recognize the Confederate states Calling for 75,000 volunteers to put down the rebellion Calling for a special session of Congress Issuing a Proclamation of Blockade against the Southern states Declaring a state of insurrection Suspending the writ of habeas corpusLincoln's firm stance on the issue of secession was essential in maintaining the integrity of the Union, and his refusal to recognize the Confederacy was a key factor in the preservation of the United States.
