Is Lincoln Really an American Hero?

Lincoln Only Wanted to Preserve the Union!

Although Lincoln personally cared about slavery, he only made the decisions he made based on keeping the union together. He even said if there was a way to preserve the union without ending slavery he wouldnt have done it!

Who Would be Free?

Lincoln only freed slaves in some states, to stop war efforts. If something made part of the Union angry, he avoided doing it!
