Thanks for accepting :)
I think Lincoln was not the best president the Country had because he took the rights away from several states to tax them higher then the Northern states because of agriculture was more expensive than industrial uses. Many Northern didn't believe in war and wanted the South to leave in peace but Lincoln declared war on the seceding states then lost four more. Lincoln abused his power, and misread the Constitution. If a state (Maryland) wanted to leave let them leave don't send there governor to jail and there secessionist to death. That's what he did to keep Maryland in the Union! He murdered innocent Men of the South; During the war Lincoln sent generals like Sherman to March and steal and kill Planters and just innocent family's living in there houses. More Americans, North and South died under a presidents power than any other presidents in American History. Lincoln blocked of all Southern Ports without a war document, that's a war crime. And He invaded another country. The South wanted peace; Not war but Lincoln blocked off all ports and sent soldiers into the Charleston Harbor.
As you see he was more of a dictator than a president.

Are you debating that he was not the best, or that he was not good?
