No, Abraham Lincoln was against slavery and he seemed to think that there was nothing that could be done to avoid the civil war. He would never have given up on stopping slavery. The civil war was more than about slavery. The states were also fighting for states’ rights. Some states were against that. Lincoln really didn’t start the civil war, but he refused to give in to his beliefs. These were important issues that were violent toward innocent human beings.
Even though the American Civil War was destructive and caused people to go against even their family members, it seemed that Lincoln knew what he was doing and he was doing the right thing. It is hard to imagine what the United States would be like if slavery didn’t end.
