Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president and the one who defeated slavery. What he did was right he didn't like the fact that different colored people were being sold to be a wife or being worked to death. But, God shined down and Abraham Lincoln went to war. It was a hard battle but they won. When it was over he and his wife went to see a play and someone had shot him in the back of his head. But to this day we thank him for ending slavery.
