Abe's view on slavery.

Lincoln wasn’t an abolitionist, Lincoln didn’t believe blacks should have the same rights as whites. Lincoln thought colonization could resolve the issue of slavery.

Abe's view on secession

The secessionists claimed that according to the Constitution every state had the right to leave the Union. Lincoln claimed that they did not have that right. He opposed secession because physically the states can not separate. Secession is unlawful, also he said that a government that allows secession will disintegrate into anarchy. He said Americans are not enemies but friends

What history would of been like if Abe didn't become president.

I am pretty sure if Abe didn't become president slavery would probably still be going on today.
