Not a Hero
Why Lincoln is not a Hero
We shaped Lincoln to be some sort of hero that we believed he was, but he wasn't. Abraham Lincoln only wanted to free the slaves for economic & political reasons. Even though he brought the slaves to freedom he was still racist against African Americans. One of his personal statements was he wanted to be supreme against blacks. He also said that he would prefer whites over blacks. Even after he freed the slaves he said they had limits. Abraham Lincoln never participated in any anti-slavery groups. This is why Abrahamm Lincoln is not a hero.
