ABRAHAM LINCOLN

Abraham Lincoln is a huge part of the reason why there is no longer slavery. He played a big role in the thirteenth amendment that ended slavery. If he just sat back and let it happen, black people would probably not be as free. During the time of his presidency this was frowned upon. It was a very bold thing Honest Abe did, it payed off in the long run.

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

Martin Luther King Jr. is the most influential person in our history, He emulates an enormous amount of courage. He stood up to the white man and demanded his rights. He kept fighting and fighting and would not stop. He is a very courageous and determined leader. Standing up for what you believe is an act of someone who emits courage.
