Was Lincoln’s statement in the following quote necessarily predictive of how the crisis over slavery had to turn out?


"A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved—I do not expect the house to fall—but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other." -Abraham Lincoln



Support, refute, or modify the contention through an examination of: the significance of the struggle over slavery for the American constitutional tradition.


What does that even mean? The American constitutional tradition?
