Walter, there is no need to write an article like this one. What do you expect from a man who was born in 1809? If you do some more research, you will definitely realize that Abraham Lincoln was definitely ant-slavery on a personal level. Lincoln is the greatest President this nation has ever had. Why? Because he was faced with a decision on whether to go to war or not. Nearly one million people died in the Civil War. Who would like to be faced with the circumstances Lincoln faced? He made his decision. It was hurtful. There is still one nation called the United States of America. Some still say the price paid in blood, and all of the sacrifices that come with it was not worth it. Lincoln was not a perfect man, just a great man.
