Summary (If Not Elected)

For us Abraham Lincoln was elected. So we'll act as Lincoln wasn't elected. If Lincoln wasn't elected we feel as that slavery could as well have still be here to this day. Lincoln was a main part to the secession of slavery, and it could as very well be slavery could still be here today if Lincoln wasn't elected.
