Which statement regarding the era of Reconstruction is FALSE?

"This sophism derives much, perhaps the whole, of its currency from the assumption that there is some
omnipotent and sacred supremacy pertaining to a state -- to each state of our Federal Union. Our states
have neither more nor less power than that reserved to them in the Union by the Constitution, no one of
them ever having been a state out of the Union. The original ones passed into the Union even before
they cast off their British colonial dependence, and the new ones each came into the Union directly from
a condition of dependence, excepting Texas; and even Texas, in its temporary independence, was never
designated a state. The new ones only took the designation of states on coming into the Union, while
that name was first adopted for the old ones in and by the Declaration of Independence.
--Abraham Lincoln, 1861
