Need help sourcing a quote

I could have sworn I read Ta-Nehisi Coates write somewhere on the internet something along the lines of - "The North didn't win the Civil War, America did." The thinking behind this was that the war shouldn't be framed as "North vs. South" - but rather, "America vs. the CSA" or "America vs. some traitors." Does this ring any bells?

I just spent a couple hours going through his prolific writing about the war and attempting to apply my not-inconsiderable google-fu to the problem and I got nothing. I need to cite this source for my sermon on Sunday. Thank you!!
