I dont think he was that great of a president, mostly because of his reconstruction policies. And the fact that his predecessor was one of my favorite presidents. (Andrew Johnson.)

Andrew Johnson was easily one of the worst presidents. He’s up there with Buchanan on terms of crap.

I disagree. The South had lost the war by 1864. The North was simply too large, had too many soldiers, and too large an economy for the South to compete. The South had to win the war fast and before the North’s resources could be brought to full force and also convince the UK and France to support it. For various reasons, it failed on both counts. By 1864 the war was lost.
