-­‐ Abraham  Lincoln   -­‐  General  Ulysses  S.  Grant  

-­‐ Abraham  said  that  having  a  another  Union  wasn't  a  good  idea,  so  what  he   did  is  he  set  his  army  to  destroy  the  Confederacy   -­‐  Abraham  hated  slavery,  and  he  didn't  like  the  the  slaves  have  to  do  all  the   work  and  masters  don't   -­‐  Abraham  saw  that  more  Union  states  were  seceding  to  the  Confederacy,   Abraham  called  for  war  to  bring  back  the  seceded  states  back  to  the  Union,   but  when  the  Confederacy  and  the  Union  were  at  Mississippi  River,   somehow,  the  Union  broke  the  Confederacy  in  to  two,  and  this  was  the   time  when  the  Confederacy  ended     -­‐  Abraham  hired  General  Ulysses  S.  Grant  to  lead  the  Union  army,  and   successfully  General  Grant,  led  the  army  to  the  right  direction  and  the   Union  army  won       -­‐  Abraham  Lincoln's  strategy  would  be  to  read  military  books  if  don't  know   any  experience  on  military   -­‐  Abraham's  strategy  about  war  is  to  block  the  Confederate  army  then   attack       Negotiations  failed  since  the  Southerners  would  not  change  the  law  of   slavery.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Violent  Protest..war-­‐He  decided  to  fight  for  the  end  of  slavery    -­‐  Abraham  Lincoln  spoke  his  famous  speech,"Emancipation  Proclamation,"   to  the  Southerners,  that  slavery  isn't  a  peaceful  thing,  in  strong  words  but   even  though  they  doubt  you,  they  could  still  change  their  minds  about  the   subject   -­‐  Abraham  hated  to  see  the  Union  break  apart,  so  what  he  did  was  he   fought  against  the  Confederacy,  since  the  Union  was  more  confident  and   stronger  they  won  the  battle  and  the  Confederacy  was  over.

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
