Example text

As Lincoln himself said later, “The world has never had a good definition of the word liberty and the American people, just now, are much in want of one. We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. ”12 What Lincoln was referring to was, of course, slavery. But to the farm-owning citizens of the slave states, slaves were a part of their property—as essential to their capacity to work the soil and raise crops as were their tools, wagons, and other items.

They had not been carrying it around, waiting to proclaim it to the right audience. They found themselves in a particular set of circumstances; with a particular set of issues—and suddenly it all became clear. In order to lead their country forward, they were able to articulate what everybody needed to hear. Abraham Lincoln is perhaps most remarkable for the fact that he started his presidency of the United States of America with, understandably, a conservative position: he was simply desperate to hold the United States—still a very young nation—together.

Lincoln was saved by a stunning victory in the south: Sherman captured Atlanta, Georgia. Lincoln was re-elected. Sherman began to fight and burn his way further south towards Savannah while Grant drove Confederacy forces back down the Shenandoah Valley. The war was being won. Early in 1865, Robert E. Lee was forced to retreat from Richmond and after a retreat of nine days, surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House. Grant offered generous terms of surrender and worked hard to allow the Confederate Army to stand down with their pride intact.
