Historian Webster Griffin Tarpley talked about the contribution of Russian Tsar Alexander II to a northern victory in the U.S. Civil War. He said that the Imperial Russian government had issued an ultimatum to Britain and France specifying that if those powers should intervene on the side of the Confederate States of America they would immediately find themselves at war with the Russian Empire. Mr. Tarpley marked the 150th anniversary of the arrival of the Russian Baltic Fleet in New York City on September 24, 1863, and of the Russian Pacific Squadron in San Francisco on October 12, 1863. He argued that it was the presence of those fleets that provided the final deterrence. Russia was the only country to extend direct military support to the Lincoln government.

Tsar Alexander II was a progressive kindred spirit of Lincoln, who freed 23 million serfs and sought to industrialize his country and keep it independent of the British empire. Lincoln's ambassador to St. Petersburg, Cassius M. Clay, a relative of Henry Clay, was a remarkable figure who encouraged both the American South and the Russians to follow the American System of protective tariffs and building up industry.

The Russian-American friendship lasted from before the American revolution up until about 1905 when it was put down by Teddy Roosevelt.
