What can we learn from this event?
We can learn that Abraham wasn't just a president taking care of the country, but he was the one to stop slavery from expanding, he also fixed the problem of the seceded states joining a new Union, " The Confederacy." Abraham fought for what was right, and now this was what he wanted the country to be, one Union and Nation. We could learn that if you ever had something that you hated soo much, then tell the people that it is wrong to have a situation so hated to the other people like how Abraham hated slavery, and he tried to stop it without getting distracted with another problem, and he bravely went through the Civil War and the Confederacy then finally, he banned slavery by making a speech called,"Emancipation Proclamation." No matter if your hated, you could still change the world
