Picture this an old town with a mixture of black and white people, but the black people get sold and become slaves. War's the only way to stop it and Abraham Lincoln is the only man. Although Abraham Lincoln had a pretty bad childhood, he turned out as an amazing man in the Civil War with courage, determination, and dedication.
The greatest president uses courage in plenty of situations. When Abe
stood up for slavery he demonstrated courage. About one-third of the
population in the South owned slaves, so he stood up and ended up
helping stopping it by starting and ending the Civil War. Also Mr.
Lincoln said the Gettysburg address in front of many people after a two
hour speech. Abraham Lincoln, ended up as a great leader. He help the
Union preserver through the war.

I think that determination lead Abraham Lincoln through his life. He demonstrated this when he wrote the Gettysburg Address on a napkin. Also when he helped lead the Union to stop slavery by encouraging the soldiers by telling them words of encouragement. Last but not least, he came from a poor family, his family lived on a farm in a log cabin in most of the places he lived. He didn't know how to read, but learned, and moved a ton and didn't have a mom.
Abraham Lincoln had so much dedication. He's so dedicated to his life that in his childhood he learned how to read and write without anyone teaching him. When he turned 21 he made a flat boat and left his dad. Last but not least, he came from a poor family, he didn't know how to read, but learned, and moved a ton and didn't have a mom and worked incredibly hard in all he did.
Although Abraham Lincoln had an awful childhood, he made slavery illegal by having courage, determination, and dedication, but ended up dying from a bullet wound in his head at 65.
