Abraham Lincoln - The other side
Abraham Lincoln is widely recognized as one of the greatest presidents of America but most people wrongly over appreciate him for his struggle against slavery and liberation of the Negroes.Indeed , he managed to abolish slavery but did not do it because of compassion for the Negroes but for the Union , as he stated.Personally , he was not whether for or against slavery.He did what was best for the Union , as he stated in one of his speeches.
"My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or destroy slavery.If I could save the Union without freeing the slaves, I would do it and if I could save it by freeing all slaves, I would do it;and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that.What I do about slavery, and the colored race , I do because I believe it helps the Union." - Abraham Lincoln
