1.According to me, Abraham Lincoln is the most influential figure in the world of politics. He is remembered for his crucial role as leader for preserving Union at the time of the Civil war who played an important role in ending slavery within United States. He is also known for his character along with leadership whose determination drove him to acquire the position of the highest service of United States.

2.President Lincoln had to endure extraordinary pressure at the time of the Civil War. The generals were not ready to fight and there were assassination threats but still he continued to fight despite opposition from that of the Copperheads. Lincoln remained strong and did not succumb to the pressures. He went on fighting till the Confederacy got defeated.

Lincoln was a strong supporter of the Emancipation programme that helped in providing freedom to the slaves. He issued the Emancipation Program after the issuing of which process of freedom in relation to the slaves in American began. He is remembered today as the “Great Emancipator”.

Another important contribution of Abraham Lincoln revolved around his decision to fight for preserving the Union. His decision of fighting in Civil War helped the USA to stay as a single nation instead of getting split into two different countries.

3.Famous quotation by Abraham Lincoln is “Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”. It shows that Abraham Lincoln believed that power resides with the people and the sole purpose of the government is to serve the people.
