Abraham Lincoln was one of the few presidents that was not only just a president, but a peacemaker. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves on January 1, 1863, when he declared the Emancipation Proclimation. On November 19, 1863, at Cemetery Hill, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, millions of Americans heard Abraham Lincoln read the Gettysburg Address. The following is an excerpt from the Gettysburg Address."FOURSCORE AND SEVEN YEARS AGO OUR FORE FATHERS BROUGHT FORTH ON THIS CONTINENT A NEW NATION, CONCIEVED IN LIBERTY AND DEDICATED TO THE PROPOSITION THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL." This changed America forever. Without Abraham Lincoln, slavery would stll be an issue to this very day . Above is the signature of Abraham Lincoln.
