Most likely the Civil War could not have been won without Abraham Lincoln’s leadership. Through Abraham Lincoln, the Union soldiers and generals were able to use Lincoln’s strategies to win the war. Also, Lincoln’s contributions went further than that. His charisma and trust he had with the people allowed more and more people to follow his ideas about the country.
Also, Lincoln was able to train his generals and leaders. Even though the South had better leaders who were graduated from West Point, Lincoln’s training allowed the generals to learn through him. It is hard to believe that the North could have won the war without Lincoln, but Lincoln was very well-known to the citizens and they trusted him and were willing to volunteer for the war.
