A problem pressing our world is that in that 1860's there was slavery and Abe Lincoln was trying to abolish slavery. The Congress agreed to help abolish slavery. The Europeans brought the black people over so they can be slaves to the white people.
Abe Lincoln decided he needed to be the leader to solve this problem. He was going to get votes for the 13 amendment. He used nonviolence and speeches about how America would be better without any slaves.
This was important to Lincoln because he felt that black people should have rights so they should be free just like a butterfly, but the slaves are like the bees. Slavery was abolished in 1865, but Lincoln died on April 15, 1865. My person was significant because he abolished slavery. I will leave a legacy by being nice and treating people like I want to be treated. I will NOT be a bully.
