Abraham Lincoln

Evidence: Abraham Lincoln was the most awesome person and led us to freedom and changed the minds of thousands, our 16th president which is one of our best and coolest guys in history.

Warrant 1: during the civil war Lincoln had a difficult time finding generals and he legally held the highest rank in the army of the civil war and did everything to weapon testing and promoting and demoting officers McDowell, Fremont, McClellan, Pope, McClellan again, Buell, Burnside, Rosecrans all under the watchful eye as they did not exceed to bring him success on the battlefield.

Warrant 2: Abraham Lincoln was president march 4th 1861, he also fought in the black hawk war so he had plenty of experience to hold down the civil war effort!

Warrant 3: The famous speech of GettysBurg Address of 1863 became an inspiration to thousands of people and multiple copies were made and spread throughout the states and throughout the army.

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863
