In Universe 79, Abe Lincoln handles a violent divorce and realizes holding families-or America together by destruction is counterproductive; also, when the Confederate States of Dixie secede, so does Kentucky. Reiterating his pledge to save the Union by freeing some and not freeing others (actual real history) Abe amends the Fugitive Slave Act to not cover foreign countries. And buys slaves from the border states to build a wall between them and the CSDX. As payment, the slaves are given freedom. Later, Secretary of State Seward forms them into the Buffalo Troops to seize Liberia for the USA. Despite too legal low population, Abe makes Nevada a state (again -real history). He also makes it the only state to outlaw slavery - which is joked about on the CSI episodes featuring Lady Heather.
